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 typically painless, 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 continuously forming on our teeth.
Here are some warning signs that may indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have actually retreated 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 many aspects that enhance the danger of establishing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to visit your dentist if you think you have gum disease because the earlier 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 stage, the disease is still reversible and can typically be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by day-to-day 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 end up being more serious over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It generally becomes worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of periodontal disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and might happen 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 research studies indicate that serious gum disease may be associated with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and gum examinations are crucial. The treatment techniques that most dental practitioners diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Excellent dental care in your home is vital to help keep gum disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
