Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is normally 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 some warning signs that may signal a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have pulled away 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 factors that increase the danger of developing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to go to your dentist if you think you have gum disease because the quicker 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 easily. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can usually 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 might end up being more severe over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It normally worsens slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of gum disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and might occur 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 research studies suggest that extreme gum disease may be connected with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental checkups and gum examinations are extremely important. The treatment methods that most dental practitioners diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Good dental care in your home is important to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
