Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is usually painless, you might not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that can signal an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have retreated from the teeth.
- persistent bad 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 many aspects that enhance the risk of developing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to go to 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 may end up being red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this stage, the disease is still fixable 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 become more severe in 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 destructive form of gum disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and may occur in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research in between systemic diseases and gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies indicate that severe periodontal disease may be related to multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and periodontal examinations are essential. The treatment techniques that most dental practitioners diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Excellent dental care in your home is essential to help keep gum disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
