Signs and symptoms of periodontal disease

Understanding the signs of periodontal disease is key to maintaining your oral health. Let’s explore the common indicators to stay informed:

  • Bleeding gums: Gums should never bleed, even when you brush vigorously or use dental floss.
  • Loose teeth: Also caused by bone loss or weakened fibers that support the tooth to the bone.
  • New spacing between teeth: Caused by bone loss.
  • Persistent bad breath: Caused by bacteria in the mouth.
  • Pus around the teeth and gums: Sign that there is an infection present.
  • Receding gums: Loss of gum around a tooth.
  • Red and puffy gums: Gums should never be red or swollen.
  • Tenderness or Discomfort: Plaque, calculus, and bacteria irritate the gums and teeth.

Risk factors of Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease doesn’t discriminate, and anyone can be affected. However, certain factors can increase your susceptibility to this condition. It’s essential to recognize these Periodontal Disease risk factors to protect your oral health effectively.

Here are the risk factors contributing to periodontal disease:

  • Poor Oral Hygiene: Inadequate brushing and flossing can allow harmful bacteria to thrive.
  • Tobacco Use: Smoking or chewing tobacco significantly increases the risk of gum disease.
  • Genetics: A family history of periodontal disease can make you more susceptible.
  • Certain Medications: Some medications can affect oral health, contributing to gum problems.
  • Hormonal Changes: Hormonal fluctuations during pregnancy, menopause, or menstruation can increase vulnerability.
  • Chronic Illnesses: Conditions like diabetes and HIV can impact gum health.
  • Stress: Chronic stress may weaken the immune system, making gum disease more likely.
  • Poor Nutrition: A diet lacking essential nutrients can hinder gum tissue repair.
  • Grinding or Clenching Teeth: These habits can damage the supporting structures of the teeth.
  • Obesity: Excess weight may increase inflammation in the body, affecting gum health.

Understanding these risk factors is crucial in preventing and managing periodontal disease effectively.
