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 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.
Some warning signs that may indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, 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 change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are lots of factors that increase the danger of establishing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to go to your dentist if you presume you have gum disease because the sooner you treat it the better.
The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might become red, inflamed and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can normally be eliminated 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 result in the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might end up being more extreme with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It generally gets worse slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of gum disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and may 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 show that extreme periodontal disease might be associated with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and periodontal examinations are crucial. The treatment methods that most dental practitioners diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Good dental care in your home is essential to help keep gum disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
