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 normally pain-free, 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 indicate an issue:
- 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 change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are many aspects that increase the risk of establishing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to visit your dentist if you presume you have gum disease because the faster you treat it the better.
The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might end up being red, swollen and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can normally be removed 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 lead to the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may become more severe with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It typically becomes 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 might take place 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 studies indicate that severe periodontal disease may be connected with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental appointments and gum examinations are very important. The treatment techniques that most dentists diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Great dental care in your home is necessary to help keep gum disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
