Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is generally pain-free, 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.
Some warning signs that can signal an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have 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 lots of aspects that enhance the danger of developing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to go to your dentist if you think 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 easily. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can generally be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by day-to-day 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 might end up being more extreme with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It usually gets worse slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive type of periodontal disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might happen in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies show that serious gum disease may be related to multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental checkups and gum examinations are essential. The treatment techniques that most dentists diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Excellent dental care at home is vital to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
