Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is normally painless, 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.
Here are couple warning signs that may signal a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have actually pulled away 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 difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are numerous aspects that enhance the danger of establishing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to go to your dentist if you suspect you have gum disease because the earlier you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums may end up being red, swollen and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still fixable 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 end up being more serious with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It normally gets worse slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive kind of periodontal disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and might take place in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research between systemic diseases and gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies show that serious periodontal 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 professionals diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Good dental care at home is vital to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
