Understanding Gum Disease
Gum disease is an infection that affects the tissues that support your teeth. It is caused by bacteria, a sticky biofilm that forms on your teeth. This bacteria attacks the gums and bones that support your teeth. If it is not treated promptly, gum disease can lead to damage to gum tissue, tooth loss, deterioration of jawbone density, and can cause systemic health issues.
Gum disease has two stages: gingivitis and periodontitis.
Gingivitis is a mild form of gum disease. Your gums may be red and swollen, and you may have bleeding gums. Gingivitis is often reversible with good oral hygiene and routine dental care visits.
Periodontitis is a more severe form of gum disease. The bacteria invade the gums, creating deep pockets that eventually cause gum recession and bone deterioration resulting in tooth loss.
If left untreated, periodontal disease can also lead to more serious health conditions such as:
- Heart disease
- Premature birth and low birth weight
The Impact of Periodontal Disease on Your Oral Health
If you have periodontal disease, it is vital to seek treatment as soon as possible. The longer you delay receiving treatment, the more harm the condition will cause to your overall and dental health.
Symptoms of periodontal disease include:
- Tooth and gum sensitivity
- Bleeding gums
- Gum recession
- Loose teeth
- Bone loss
- Bad breath
Advanced periodontitis is often irreversible, but with early diagnosis and treatment, the progression of gum disease can be halted and maintained.
