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 might not know you have it. Also referred to as 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 indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have 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 change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are lots of factors that increase the danger of establishing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to go to your dentist if you presume 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 become red, swollen and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can usually be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily 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 become more severe in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It generally gets worse slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive type of gum disease that occurs 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 in between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies show that severe gum disease might be associated with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental appointments and gum examinations are essential. The treatment techniques that most dental experts diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Excellent dental care in your home is vital to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
