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 generally painless, you may not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that can signal a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have actually retreated from the teeth.
- persistent 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 change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are numerous aspects that increase the risk of developing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to visit your dentist if you presume you have gum disease because the faster you treat it the better.
The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might become red, swollen and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still fixable and can typically be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can result in the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may end up being more extreme with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It usually worsens slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of gum disease that happens 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 periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies indicate that extreme gum disease may be related to a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and gum examinations are extremely important. The treatment methods that most dental experts diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Great dental care at home is essential to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
