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 generally 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 continuously forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that can indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, 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 enhance the risk of developing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to go to your dentist if you presume you have gum disease because the earlier you treat it the better.
The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums may become red, inflamed and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can normally be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by day-to-day 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 may become more severe over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It generally gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive type of gum disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical 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 periodontal disease may be related to a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental checkups and periodontal examinations are very important. The treatment methods that most dental professionals diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Good dental care in your home is essential to help keep gum disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
