WARNING SIGNS OF PERIODONTAL DISEASE

Slide 2:

Also known as gum disease and periodontitis, this oral malady is a progressive disease and is the leading reason for tooth loss in adults. The first signs of periodontal disease are the irritation and inflammation of the gum tissue (gingiva) caused by toxins in the plaque. The toxins cause the bacterial infection of gum tissue known as gingivitis. This can lead to destruction of gum tissue and the bone beneath it. If left untreated, periodontal disease can eventually loosen the tooth and cause it to fall. WARNING SIGNS OF PERIODONTAL DISEASE 

Slide 3:

BLEEDING As noted above, plaque causes bacterial infections, making the tissues vulnerable to bleeding. Incorrect brushing and flossing can cause teeth and gums to bleed, causing further infections and onset of periodontal disease.

Slide 4:

SWELLING, PAIN OR REDNESS Unexplained pain, swelling or redness of the gums may be an indication of infection and the onset of periodontitis . It is essential to treat the infection at this stage so as to prevent it from affecting the gum tissue and underlying bone.

Slide 5:

LONGER-LOOKING TEETH One way periodontal infection destroys gum tissue and bone is by causing the gums to recede. This exposes the upper parts of your teeth and makes them look longer; this is one of the reasons why people have ‘toothy’ smiles.

Slide 6:

HALITOSIS OR BAD BREATH Bad breath can originate from numerous places like the tongue, lungs and stomach and can also be the result of food, alcohol or tobacco . The food particles can decay, cause foul breath and make the tissues vulnerable to infection.

Slide 7:

LOOSE TEETH Loosening of the teeth is a sure sign of periodontal disease. Teeth , once firmly attached to the jawbone start becoming unfixed or shift position when the bone tissue gets destroyed by infection.

Slide 8:

PUS Pus is a definite sign of the presence of periodontal infection . The pus is a soldier of your body’s immune system and is fighting the bacterial infection . However, it may need re-enforcements from your dentist in the form of timely treatment .
