Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is typically painless, you might not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Here are some warning signs that can indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have actually pulled away from the teeth.
- persistent 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 change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are numerous factors that increase the risk of establishing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to visit your dentist if you believe you have gum disease because the sooner 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 quickly. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can usually be eliminated 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 extreme with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It normally becomes 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 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 extreme gum disease might be related to numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and gum examinations are crucial. The treatment techniques that most dental practitioners diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Great dental care in your home is necessary to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
