Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is typically pain-free, you may 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.
Some warning signs that may signal an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have actually pulled away from the teeth.
- consistent bad 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 numerous factors that enhance the risk of developing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to visit your dentist if you believe 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 may become red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this stage, the disease is still fixable and can usually be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by day-to-day flossing and brushing.
Advanced gum disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might end up being more serious in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It usually becomes 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. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may 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 severe gum disease might be related to a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental appointments and gum examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dentists diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Excellent dental care in your home is vital to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
