Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is normally pain-free, you might not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of germs that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that can indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, tender 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 numerous aspects that enhance the risk of establishing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to go to your dentist if you believe you have gum disease because the faster you treat it the better.
The early stage of periodontal 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 generally be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily 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 become more extreme with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It generally gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive type of periodontal disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may take place 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 indicate that extreme periodontal disease might be related to numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental appointments and periodontal examinations are essential. The treatment techniques that most dental professionals diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Great dental care in your home is necessary to help keep gum disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
