Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is typically 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 germs that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that may signal a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
- consistent bad breath or bad taste.
- permanent teeth that are separating or loose.
- any difference in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
- any difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are lots of factors that increase the danger of establishing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to go to your dentist if you think 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 might end up being red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can normally be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily flossing and brushing.
Advanced gum disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can result in the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may end up being more serious with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It typically gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of gum disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include 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 studies indicate that extreme periodontal disease may be related to multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and gum examinations are essential. The treatment techniques that most dentists diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Great dental care at home is important to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
