A Guide To Periodontal Gum Disease

Do you suffer from chronic bad breath? Notice your gums are inflamed, irritated or bleeding? You may be suffering from a condition known as periodontal “gum” disease.

What is Periodontal Gum Disease?

Periodontal gum disease is an extremely common dental condition which affects almost half of the American adult population. Periodontal disease is caused when a patient neglects their oral health, leading to a buildup of bacteria, acid, plaque and toxins in the mouth. Eventually inflammation and infection of the gums occurs, causing them to recede and form pockets, additionally causing the teeth to become loose. As patients continue to neglect periodontal gum disease, the gums, bones and even teeth can be affected, resulting in receding gums, bone loss and even tooth loss. During the early stage of periodontal disease (gingivitis) the condition can actually be completely reversed and cured, we recommend seeking treatment once you notice any symptoms.

The Warning Signs of Gum Disease

When it comes to gum disease, many patients neglect to address symptoms until the condition has progressed, we recommend looking out for:

  • Chronic Bad Breath
  • Infected Gums
  • Inflamed Gums
  • Tender Gums
  • Bleeding Gums
  • Receding Gums
  • Gum Pockets
  • Toothache
  • Loose Teeth
  • Missing Teeth

In the event that you notice any of the above symptoms, we recommend scheduling a routine visit with Ramona Dentistry. If we confirm you are suffering from periodontal disease, we will begin planning your gum disease treatment in Chino, CA.

About Gum Recession

Is today’s article we will discuss something called gum recession. Gum recession is the shrinking or receding of gums. There are a few different reasons gum recession can begin, all of which involves some irritation of the gum tissues around the teeth. At Ramona Dentistry in Chino, CA, we find that keeping our patients educated and up-to-date with new technologies makes them more willing and able to get treated by us in continuing their journey to better health. In this article, we will discuss just a few things that can help us achieve said goal.

Types of Gum Tissues and Receding Gums

There are two main types of genetic gum tissues one being thick and flat and the other being thin and scalloped. If you have thin and scalloped gums, you may be more prone to get gum recession as opposed to patients with other kinds of gums. When scrubbing your teeth with a hard-bristled toothbrush and abrasive toothpaste, you can increasingly irritate the gums around your teeth. Even when you have a bite that is uneven, this can cause recession and large fillings, and other dental work can cause recession as well.

To counter effect gum recession using a sonic toothbrush and an alcohol containing mouthwash can reduce this recession. But most of all recession can be caused by over 2,300 species of bacteria that deposit substances on the teeth that have endotoxin which irritates the gum tissue.

Why is it Dangerous to Your Health?

Gum recession can lead to early acid and mechanical erosion of the roots of your teeth. Your teeth can begin to look a longer over time, making your bones and gums shrink. The shrinkage of the bone is permanent and cannot be treated by a dental professional. Over time this could lead to tooth loss meaning the recession of gums has much bigger repercussions than many might think. Bacteria through your exposed roots and into the bloodstream can eventually lead to increased chances of the following diseases:

  • Heart attack
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Stroke
  • Respiratory diseases
  • Diabetes
  • Loss of vision, toes, sinus problems, and fatigue
  • Alzheimer’s

What Can Be Done to Treat Recession?

It is important that you begin to determine first the cause of the recession. By implementing a home routine regimen, you can begin to treat the existing summer session. However, the most important course of action that you can take is to see your dentist immediately, that way they can refer you to a periodontal expert as soon as possible.
