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 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 few warning signs that can indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have actually pulled away 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 change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are numerous aspects that enhance the risk of establishing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to visit your dentist if you presume you have gum disease because the earlier 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 easily. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can normally be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by everyday flossing and brushing.
Advanced gum disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can lead to 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, but there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging kind of periodontal disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common 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 between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies indicate that severe periodontal disease might be connected with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental appointments and gum examinations are essential. The treatment methods that most dental practitioners diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Excellent dental care in your home is necessary to help keep gum disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
