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 germs that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that may signal a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have actually retreated from the teeth.
- persistent 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 difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are lots of factors that increase the risk of establishing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to visit 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 may end up being red, swollen and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can normally 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 lead to the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may become more extreme with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It generally gets worse slowly, but there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive kind of periodontal disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical 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 periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies indicate that severe gum disease might be associated with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and periodontal examinations are very important. The treatment methods that most dental practitioners diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Good dental care at home is necessary to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
