Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is usually 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.
Some warning signs that can signal a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- 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 change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are lots of factors that enhance the danger of establishing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to go to your dentist if you presume 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 become red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this stage, the disease is still fixable and can normally be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily flossing and brushing.
Advanced gum disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can lead to the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may end up being more extreme in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It normally becomes worse slowly, but there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive kind of periodontal disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and might occur 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 research studies suggest that extreme periodontal disease may be related to a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental appointments and periodontal 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 advanced. Excellent dental care at home is necessary to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
