What is periodontal disease?
What are the stages of periodontal disease?
- Gingivitis: This is the earliest stage of gum disease, characterized by red, swollen, and bleeding gums. Gingivitis is typically caused by poor oral hygiene and is reversible with proper dental care and treatment.
- Periodontitis: If gingivitis is left untreated, it can progress to periodontitis, a more severe form of gum disease. Periodontitis involves the destruction of the gum tissue, bone, and ligaments that support the teeth. This can eventually lead to tooth loss and other complications.
What are the symptoms of periodontal disease?
- Red, swollen, or tender gums.
- Gums that bleed easily, especially when brushing or flossing.
- Receding gums, which can make your teeth appear longer.
- Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth.
- Loose teeth or a change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
- Pus between your teeth and gums.
If you notice any of these symptoms, it’s important to see your dentist for a thorough examination and appropriate treatment.
How is periodontal disease treated?
- Professional dental cleaning: A thorough cleaning to remove plaque and tartar buildup, including scaling and root planing for more advanced cases.
- Improved oral hygiene: Regular brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash can help prevent the progression of gum disease.
- Medications: Antibiotics, antimicrobial mouthwashes, or other medications may be prescribed to help control the infection.
- Gum surgery: In more advanced cases, surgical procedures like flap surgery or bone and tissue grafts may be necessary to repair the damage caused by periodontal disease.
