Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because 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 may signal an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
- persistent bad 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 numerous factors that increase the risk of establishing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to visit 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, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this stage, the disease is still fixable and can usually 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 result in the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might become more severe with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It typically gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of periodontal disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and may 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 show that extreme gum disease might be associated with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and gum examinations are extremely important. The treatment methods that most dental practitioners diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Good dental care at home is important to help keep gum disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
