Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is typically painless, 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 continuously forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that may indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have actually retreated from the teeth.
- persistent 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 lots of factors that enhance the risk of establishing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to go to your dentist if you suspect you have gum disease because the faster you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might become red, inflamed and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can normally be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by day-to-day 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 extreme with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It typically becomes worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive type of gum disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of 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 suggest that serious gum disease may be related to multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental checkups and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dental experts diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Excellent dental care at home is essential to help keep gum disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
