Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since 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 germs that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that can indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, 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 numerous aspects that enhance the risk of developing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to visit your dentist if you believe 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 become red, inflamed and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can generally be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by day-to-day flossing and brushing.
Advanced gum disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can result in the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may become more serious 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 rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive form of gum disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might 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 indicate that severe periodontal disease might be connected with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and gum examinations are crucial. The treatment techniques that most dental experts diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Excellent dental care at home is essential to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
