Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Due to the fact that gum disease is typically pain-free, you might not know you have it. Also referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Here are some warning signs that may signal a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have retreated from the teeth.
- consistent foul breath or bad taste.
- permanent teeth that are separating or loose.
- any change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
- any difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are lots of factors that enhance the danger of developing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential 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, inflamed and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still fixable and can usually be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by day-to-day flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might become more extreme in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It typically gets worse slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging kind of gum disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and may take place in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research in between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies show that severe gum disease may be associated with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental appointments and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment methods that most dental experts diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Excellent dental care in your home is vital to help keep gum disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
