Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is typically painless, you might not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of germs that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Here are couple warning signs that may signal an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, tender 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 difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are many aspects that increase the risk of developing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to go to your dentist if you presume you have gum disease because the earlier you treat it the better.
The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might end up being red, swollen and bleed quickly. At this stage, the disease is still fixable and can generally be eliminated 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 become more severe in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It normally worsens slowly, but there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging kind of periodontal disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might occur 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 research studies indicate that severe gum disease might be connected with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and gum examinations are crucial. The treatment techniques that most dental experts diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Good dental care at home is vital to help keep gum disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
