Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is normally painless, you may not know you have it. Also referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that may indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have retreated from the teeth.
- consistent foul breath or bad taste.
- permanent teeth that are separating or loose.
- any difference in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
- any change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are many factors that increase the risk of establishing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to go to your dentist if you suspect 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 phase, the disease is still reversible and can normally be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by day-to-day flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might become more serious with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It generally worsens slowly, but there can be periods of rapid 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 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 show that serious periodontal disease might be related to multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental appointments and periodontal examinations are essential. The treatment techniques that most dental experts diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Great dental care at home is important to help keep gum disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
