Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is normally pain-free, you may 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.
Some warning signs that can indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have retreated from the teeth.
- consistent foul breath or bad taste.
- permanent teeth that are separating or loose.
- any difference in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
- any difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are numerous factors that increase the danger of establishing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to go to your dentist if you believe you have gum disease because the quicker 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, inflamed and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can typically be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by everyday 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 may become more extreme in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It usually becomes worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging type of periodontal disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and might occur 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 research studies show that serious periodontal disease may be connected with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and periodontal examinations are essential. The treatment techniques that most dental experts diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Excellent dental care at home is essential to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
