TREATMENT OF PERIODONTITIS GUMS (LASER TECHNOLOGY, CURETTAGE)
Periodontitis is a disease of the tissues that hold the tooth in place. It is an inflammation of the gums and other dental organs (ligament and alveolar bone).
Periodontitis is accompanied by bone loss which becomes the cause of tooth loss. The bacteria form in the gums and then penetrate the bone. The bone supporting the tooth becomes infected and resorbs and the tooth begins to move. Sometimes you have to pull out the tooth that has no decay or other problem but has lost the bone and no longer holds together.
Gum disease is linked to poor oral and dental hygiene. Bacteria present in the mouth attach themselves to the teeth, forming dental plaque and then tartar. It can be linked to other diseases, heredity or taking certain medications. An ill-fitting prosthesis or incorrect occlusion can also cause inflammation of the gums.
BE CAREFUL OF PERIODONTITIS SYMPTOMS
“Lossing” of the teeth, that is, the supporting bone of the tooth loses height, the tooth appears longer;
Abnormal dental mobility. This is the most disturbing sign after which there is falling teeth.
To prevent the development of periodontitis, a scaling must be done every 6 months.
If the disease persists, laser treatments are performed to decontaminate the gums.
For advanced periodontal disease when there is bone destruction, curettage is done to treat the pockets of the teeth (the space between the tooth and the gum).Timely treatment preserves oral health and preserves the bone. Long-term success depends entirely on the maintenance that will be done afterwards.
