Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Due to the fact that gum disease is generally painless, 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.
Here are some warning signs that may indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- 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 numerous factors that enhance the danger of developing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, 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 may end up being red, swollen 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 gum disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can lead to the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might end up being more serious with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It usually worsens slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive form of gum disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might happen in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research in between systemic diseases and gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies suggest that serious periodontal disease may be connected with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and gum examinations are very important. The treatment techniques that most dental practitioners diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Good dental care at home is necessary to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
