Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is usually 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 germs that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Here are some warning signs that may signal an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have 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 difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are lots of aspects that increase the danger of developing gum disease including 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 periodontal disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might end up being red, swollen and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can typically 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 cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may end up being more severe over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It usually becomes worse slowly, but there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging kind of periodontal disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may take place 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 research studies indicate that severe gum disease may be connected with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and gum examinations are essential. The treatment methods that most dentists diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Good dental care at home is necessary to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
