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 couple warning signs that can signal an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
- persistent 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 lots of aspects that increase the risk of developing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to visit your dentist if you presume 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, swollen and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can typically be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by everyday 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 extreme over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It typically gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive type of periodontal 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 periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies suggest that severe gum disease may be related to multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and gum examinations are extremely important. The treatment methods that most dentists diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Excellent dental care at home is essential to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
