Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is generally pain-free, 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 can indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have retreated from the teeth.
- persistent 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 numerous factors that increase the danger of establishing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to visit your dentist if you believe you have gum disease because the quicker you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums may become red, swollen and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can usually be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by everyday flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal 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 over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It normally worsens slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging kind of gum disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and may 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 research studies indicate that serious gum disease may be related to multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dental experts diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Good dental care at home is important to help keep gum disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
