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 usually 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 constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that can indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have retreated from the teeth.
- consistent foul breath or bad taste.
- permanent teeth that are separating or loose.
- any change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
- any difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are numerous aspects that enhance the danger of developing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to visit your dentist if you presume you have gum disease because the faster you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums may become red, swollen and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can typically 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 extreme in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It typically gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging type of gum disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and may happen 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 studies suggest that severe periodontal disease may be associated with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental appointments and periodontal examinations are very important. The treatment techniques that most dental practitioners diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Great dental care at home is essential to help keep gum disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
