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 may not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Here are few warning signs that may indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have actually 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 numerous aspects that increase the danger of developing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to go to your dentist if you presume you have gum disease because the quicker you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might end up being red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can generally be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by everyday flossing and brushing.
Advanced gum disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can lead to the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may become more serious with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It normally becomes worse slowly, but there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of gum disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and may 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 studies suggest that extreme periodontal disease might be connected with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dental practitioners diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Great dental care at home is vital to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
