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 normally 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 germs that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that may signal a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have pulled away 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 aspects that enhance the risk of developing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to visit 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 may become red, swollen and bleed quickly. At this phase, 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 gum disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might become more serious with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It usually worsens slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging kind of periodontal disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might happen in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research in between systemic diseases and gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies indicate that serious gum disease may be associated with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental checkups and gum examinations are very important. The treatment techniques that most dentists diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Good dental care at home is important to help keep gum disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
