Complex treatment of periodontal diseases

A radiant smile is not only about white teeth, but also healthy gums. Therefore, taking care of the health of your smile, you need to remember this. In dentistry, gum disease is called periodontal inflammation.

Periodontium - tissues located near the teeth, which fix them in the dental holes. Visually, it looks like swollen and reddened gums. This condition also causes inconvenience when eating and communicating.

And now, in order, why it is important to seek treatment in time for gum disease.

The periodontium includes:

  • gums;
  • periodontal ligaments, which are used to connect the bone holes and roots of the teeth;
  • bone tissue of the alveolar process of the jaw;
  • tooth root cement.

Diseases in each of these tissues begin with inflammation. If treatment is not started on time, the inflammatory process progresses, affecting the bone tissue adjacent to the teeth. Because of this, the teeth are deprived of the necessary support, loosened and fall out.

Why does the gum “hurt”?

Most often, periodontal diseases are caused by the negative effects of dental plaque. It consists of bacteria, their waste products and is formed constantly. And this can lead to the appearance of tartar.

The activity of bacteria causes the odor from the mouth characteristic of periodontal disease. But the most dangerous thing is that it can lead to tooth loss!

To avoid this, it is enough to regularly do professional oral hygiene. And be sure to pay attention to quality daily care.

The most common periodontal diseases


Gingivitis. This is an inflammation that is provoked by plaque accumulated near the gums without the formation of a periodontal pocket. When brushing or flossing, blood is released from the inflamed gums. The consequences of gingivitis are reversible, because the inflammation has not yet spread to adjacent tissues - connective tissue and bone.

Periodontitis. With periodontitis, the connective and bone tissue is inflamed, and the consequences become irreversible. Pockets are formed inside the gums, which are filled with food and growing plaque. Timely dental treatment and active prophylaxis at home can stop this process.

It is impossible to quickly cure periodontal diseases. But the professional actions of the doctor and the patient's constant fulfillment of his recommendations make it possible to stop their development and prevent negative consequences.

The development of periodontal diseases is caused by:

  • Dental plaque, which turns into tartar over time;
  • shallow vestibule of the oral cavity, due to which the edge of the gum drops, exposing the dental roots. This leads to bone destruction with subsequent loss of teeth;
  • malocclusion. In this case, the load on the periodontium is unevenly distributed. The oral cavity is not self-cleaning enough.

Common factors that provoke the development of periodontal disease

  • zabolevania parodontaHormonal changes... Most important for women, including during pregnancy, lactation and menopause. As a result, the sensitivity of the gums to negative influences increases, and the likelihood of gingivitis and periodontitis increases. Also, an important role is played by the pathology of the thyroid gland as one of the regulators of calcium metabolism in the body.
  • Smoking... One of the main risk factors. It is much more difficult for smokers to overcome periodontal diseases.
  • Common diseases... Oncology, AIDS, diabetes mellitus increase the likelihood of developing infections, inflammation and worsen their course.
  • Taking medicationwhich reduce the intensity of salivation. Saliva is bactericidal and protects the oral cavity from infection. When there is not enough saliva, this protection is inadequate, with the result that infections can provoke disease and inflammation. A side effect of some drugs is gingival hypertrophy (overgrowth).
  • Genetic predisposition... Alas, some patients are prone to periodontal disease from birth.

The comprehensive approach that we practice for high-quality diagnosis and timely treatment of periodontal disease includes:

  • high-quality periodontal diagnostics;
  • conservative methods of treatment of periodontal diseases;
  • periodontal surgery;
  • orthopedic rehabilitation;
  • orthodontics.

Treatment for any periodontal disease begins with complete removal of plaque and tartar... As a result of therapy, we eliminate the consequences of gingivitis, stabilize the course of diseases with irreversible consequences.
