Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is generally painless, 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.
Here are couple warning signs that can signal a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have retreated from the teeth.
- persistent 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 increase the risk of establishing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to visit your dentist if you presume you have gum disease because the sooner you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might become red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can normally be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily 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 serious with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It usually becomes worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging type of periodontal disease that occurs 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 gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies indicate that severe periodontal disease might be associated with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and periodontal examinations are essential. The treatment techniques that most dental professionals diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Good dental care in your home is necessary to help keep gum disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
