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 typically pain-free, you may 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 can indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have actually pulled away from the teeth.
- consistent bad 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 factors that increase the danger of developing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to go to your dentist if you presume you have gum disease because the quicker you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might become red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can usually be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can lead to the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may end up being more severe with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It typically worsens slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging kind of periodontal disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include 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 gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies suggest that serious gum disease might be related to multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental checkups and periodontal examinations are very important. The treatment techniques that most dental practitioners diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Excellent dental care at home is important to help keep gum disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
