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 generally pain-free, you might not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that may indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have retreated from the teeth.
- persistent 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 lots of factors that increase the risk of developing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to visit your dentist if you believe 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 generally be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily 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 may end up being more severe with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It generally becomes worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive kind of periodontal disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features consist of 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 gum disease may be related to numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental appointments and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment methods that most dental professionals diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Good dental care in your home is vital to help keep gum disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
