Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is generally pain-free, you might not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Here are couple warning signs that may indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have retreated from the teeth.
- persistent foul breath or bad taste.
- permanent teeth that are separating or loose.
- any difference in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
- any change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are lots of factors that increase the risk of developing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to go to your dentist if you presume you have gum disease because the sooner you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums may become red, swollen and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can normally be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily flossing and brushing.
Advanced gum disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can lead to the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may end up being more severe with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It normally becomes worse slowly, but there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive kind of periodontal disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and might take place in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research between systemic diseases and gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies indicate that severe gum disease may be related to numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and gum examinations are very important. The treatment techniques that most dental experts diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Great dental care at home is important to help keep gum disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
