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 painless, you may 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 can indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have actually retreated from the teeth.
- consistent 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 difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are numerous factors that enhance the danger of developing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very 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 end up being red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can usually be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily 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 generally worsens slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive kind of periodontal disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may happen 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 severe periodontal disease might be connected with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental appointments and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dental professionals diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Great dental care at home is necessary to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
