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 may not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of germs that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that may indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have actually 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 change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are lots of factors that increase the danger of establishing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to visit your dentist if you presume you have gum disease because the quicker 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 phase, the disease is still fixable and can generally be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by day-to-day 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 might become more serious over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It usually worsens slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive form of gum disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might take place 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 studies suggest that severe periodontal disease might be associated with a number of 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 rely on 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 serious or recurring.
