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 might not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Here are some warning signs that may indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have actually 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 numerous factors that increase the danger of establishing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to go to your dentist if you believe you have gum disease because the earlier you treat it the better.
The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums may end up being red, swollen and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still fixable and can usually be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by day-to-day flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can result in the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might become more severe with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It normally gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid 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 happen in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research between systemic diseases and gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies suggest that extreme gum disease may be related to numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental appointments and gum 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. Excellent dental care at home is essential to help keep gum disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
