WHAT IS GUM DISEASE?: GINGIVITIS VS PERIODONTISTS
Gingivitis also commonly known as Periodontists is an early stage of gum infection that is common in the world. The World Health Organization estimates 3 out of 4 Americans have some form of the bacterial infection, with 15%-20% worldwide developing the severe version of the disease.
Is Gum Disease common?
Despite being preventable, gingivitis is quite common. An estimated 3 out of 4 American adults have gingivitis, the earliest form of gum disease.
What are the stages of It??
There are four general stages of it. If left untreated, gingivitis can progress to the more serious condition of periodontists.
- Stage 1: Gingivitis is the first stage of gum disease, and its symptoms include inflamed or red gums that may bleed when brushed.
- Stage 2: In early periodontists, slight loss of bone that supports the teeth occurs even though other symptoms may not be easily observed.
- Stage 3: In moderate periodontists, more bone and gum tissue is destroyed and loosening of teeth may also occur.
- Stage 4: Advanced periodontists is the most severe stage of the disease. Symptoms become more severe, teeth can become very loose and biting and chewing may hurt. Extensive dental treatment is typically required to try to correct the damage of advanced periodontists.
The term “periodontists” is used to describe the later, more severe stages of gum disease. If gingivitis goes untreated, it can lead to periodontists, which carries symptoms and health implications such as receding gums, damage to the bone and connective tissue around teeth, and (in the severe cases) tooth loss. While gingivitis may be treated, the effects of periodontists are typically not reversible. It is a chronic, long-term condition that should be addressed with the help of a dental professional.
The difference between Gum Disease, Gingivitis, and Periodontists
There may be some confusion with the medical terminology surrounding gum disease, but it’s fairly simple. It is the general term used to describe all the stages of periodontal disease – including gingivitis and periodontists. Gingivitis describes early (and reversible) gum disease, the kind marked by red, swollen gums that may bleed easily when brushed or flossed. If gingivitis is not addressed, it can progress and develop into the more serious (non-reversible) stage of gum disease called periodontists. Periodontists attacks gums, bone and the connective tissue that holds teeth in place, eventually loosening teeth over time to the point that they could fall out. Gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss.
Impact of Gum Disease
Although it is preventable, gum disease (or periodontal disease) can lead to loss of teeth if not treated.
