Many of us actually experience mild forms of periodontal disease without actually knowing it. Mild bleeding while you brush is caused by weakened or infected gums that need treatment. Periodontal disease is easily noticed by the symptoms of inflammation, redness and swelling. The first mild form of periodontal disease is gingivitis affective the outer sections of the gums with Periodontitis being the more severe and advanced stage of the same. Periodontitis affects the inner gums resulting in painful roots and possible tooth loss if left untreated.
Gum disease can happen for many reasons and the trick in preserving your teeth is to take early notice of the symptoms and effective treat the condition before it spreads to all sections in the mouth. The first and most obvious symptom is bleeding gums, followed by slight swelling or inflammation. Advanced symptoms will include receding gum line, appearance of pus and bad breath. Tooth loss occurs in the last stages of the disease but it may first rot your teeth before it does.
Periodontitis is now almost something we never hear off, not because its been cured or that we are all immune from it, but because many people visit the dentist regularly and maintain good dental hygiene practices. Gingivitis does need to be looked into by a qualified Periodontist who will prevent or help you stop it from progressing further.
Early warning signs are easily noticed during your dental check up by your dental hygienist or general dentist with the symptoms easily treated within a couple of days.
There are varying treatments for gum diseases available depending on the degree of infection and the progression of the condition. Early signs are treated non-invasively using prescription medicine, and oral washes, whilst more advanced degrees of the disease is counteracted with medicines and sometimes minimally invasive surgical treatments to restore damage that may have already been caused.
