Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is normally pain-free, you might not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of germs that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Here are couple warning signs that may signal a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have actually retreated from the teeth.
- consistent 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 numerous factors that increase the risk of developing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to visit your dentist if you presume 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 stage, the disease is still fixable and can usually 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 cause 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 start moving around in your mouth. It usually gets worse slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive kind of gum disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may 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 studies show that severe periodontal disease may be connected with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and periodontal examinations are very important. The treatment methods that most dental professionals diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Great dental care at home is important to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
