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 generally pain-free, you may 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.
Some warning signs that can signal a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, sore 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 danger of establishing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to go to your dentist if you think 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 may become red, swollen and bleed quickly. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can generally be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can lead to the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might become more serious in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It usually worsens slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of gum disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may happen in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research between systemic diseases and gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies indicate that extreme gum disease may be associated with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and gum examinations are very important. The treatment methods that most dentists diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Excellent dental care in your home is essential to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
