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 usually pain-free, you might 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 signal a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
- persistent 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 difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are lots of factors that enhance the danger of establishing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very 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 may end up being red, swollen and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can generally 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 result in 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 generally worsens slowly, but there can be periods of rapid 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 might 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 research studies suggest that serious gum disease might be related to multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental appointments and gum examinations are very important. The treatment techniques that most dental practitioners diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Good dental care in your home is vital to help keep gum disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
