Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is usually 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 indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have actually retreated from the teeth.
- consistent 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 aspects that enhance the risk 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 earlier 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 reversible and can generally be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by everyday 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 may end up being more extreme with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It normally becomes worse slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging type of periodontal disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may 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 indicate that serious periodontal disease might be related to numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and gum examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dental experts diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Great dental care at home is essential to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
