What is periodontitis and how to treat it?
Thanks to advertising about caries, even children know. But periodontal disease is still a mystery to most. This disease is not given enough attention and they are rarely diagnosed. This is indicated by statistics – 80% of the population suffers from this disease.
Our Center for Practical Dentistry, which operates in Mizhhiria and Ivano-Frankivsk, conducts professional and effective elimination of gum disease. Our doctors approach each patient individually, making a detailed initial diagnosis and assessment of the complexity of the disease in order to conduct optimal treatment.
Causes of periodontitis, its signs and stages
The main reason for the occurrence and development of periodontitis is bacteria that are contained in plaque on the surfaces of the teeth due to poor maintenance of oral hygiene. Therefore, the basis for successful treatment and further prevention of the occurrence of diseases is optimal and high-quality oral hygiene.
The main signs of the existence of periodontal diseases:
- Bad breath with constant hygiene;
- Bleeding when brushing your teeth or while eating;
- The formation of plaque, deposits and stones;
- Prolapse of the gingival margin, exposure of the neck or roots of the teeth;
- Swelling and redness of the gums, unpleasant and painful sensations;
- The movement of seemingly healthy-looking teeth.
You should know that in most cases periodontitis is not accompanied by pain. Therefore, if you notice the above symptoms, be sure (preferably as soon as possible) consult a periodontist.
Complexity and stages of periodontal disease
- Gingivitis is superficial inflammation that can usually be treated easily, and is different than periodontitis in that bone loss has not occurred;
- Mild periodontitis – the destruction of the bone and tissues that hold the teeth in the jaw is insignificant;
- Medium – more significant destruction of the bone, which can lead to exposure of the gums, threatens tooth loss;
- Severe – the destruction of more than half of the bone holding the tooth can lead to a strong exposure of the roots of the teeth, their mobility and subsequent loss.
Effective treatment of gum disease of varying complexity
If the correct and adequate treatment of periodontitis is not done in a timely manner, it will progress, which over time will simply lead to the loss of healthy teeth. In addition, the infection that exists in the oral cavity can penetrate the body, leading to the onset and progression of a number of diseases, in particular, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes mellitus, prematurity of the fetus and more.
Successful and effective treatment of periodontitis requires close cooperation between the doctor and the patient and an integrated approach (if necessary, therapeutic, orthodontic, surgical and orthopedic treatment). It consists of the following main steps:
- Non-surgical – diagnostics, deep removal of dental deposits, stones;
- Surgical – performed if necessary;
- Maintenance therapy – follow-up visits to the dentist for life.
In our Center for Practical Dentistry, each patient at the first appointment must undergo an initial periodontal diagnosis – PSR test. If the test shows problems, a more advanced and detailed diagnosis is performed. As a result, a periodontal scan with a series of X-ray photographs and a detailed history is compiled. This approach gives a complete vision of the problem, will help to facilitate a better and more effective treatment.
Paramount are the procedures of professional hygiene – the removal of dental deposits with the help of ultrasonic devices, Air-Flow, special pastes and polishing gums. We also teach patients individual oral hygiene and select the necessary funds.
Our clinics, which work in the cities of Ivano-Frankivsk and Mizhhiria, annually take part in the days of healthy gums, which takes place in Ukraine and the world. On this day, our doctors conduct free periodontal diagnostics.
