Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is usually pain-free, you might not know you have it. Also called 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, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have retreated from the teeth.
- consistent 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 change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are lots of aspects that increase the risk of establishing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to go to your dentist if you think you have gum disease because the sooner you treat it the better.
The early stage of periodontal 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 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 may become more serious over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It usually becomes worse slowly, but 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. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and may occur 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 show that serious gum disease may be associated with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and gum examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dental practitioners diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Great dental care in your home is vital to help keep gum disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
