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 might not know you have it. Also referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that may signal an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have retreated from the teeth.
- consistent 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 lots of factors that increase the risk of establishing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to go to your dentist if you think 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 might become red, swollen and bleed quickly. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can normally be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by everyday flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might end up being more severe in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It typically becomes worse slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of gum disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and might 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 show that extreme periodontal disease might be related to multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and periodontal examinations are crucial. The treatment methods that most dental professionals diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Excellent dental care at home is important to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
