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 painless, you may not know you have it. Also referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of germs that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that may indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, 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 increase the danger of establishing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to go to your dentist if you believe you have gum disease because the earlier you treat it the better.
The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might become red, swollen 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 periodontal 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 begin moving around in your mouth. It normally gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging type of periodontal disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include 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 studies suggest that severe periodontal disease may be connected with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and periodontal examinations are crucial. The treatment techniques that most dental experts diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Good dental care in your home is essential to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
