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 might 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.
Here are couple warning signs that may signal a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
- persistent 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 difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are many aspects that increase the risk of establishing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to visit your dentist if you suspect 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 become red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can generally 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 end up being more serious over 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 form of gum disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might take place 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 might be connected with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental checkups and periodontal examinations are crucial. The treatment techniques that most dental professionals diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Excellent dental care in your home is vital to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
