Periodontitis is one of the most common diseases suffered by patients, regardless of their age. Although there are different degrees, in the most severe cases it can lead to tooth loss.
Periodontitis is an inflammation and infection of the ligaments and bones that support the teeth. It can range from a simple inflammation of the gums to a serious disease.
When the inflammation or infection of the gums (called gingivitis) is not treated and the problem becomes more and more serious, it can cause the teeth to become loose and eventually fall out.
Periodontal disease can develop without showing symptoms, so it is very important to visit the dentist periodically for a general check-up. However, the symptoms that usually appear are:
– Bleeding of the gum when eating or brushing the teeth.
– Pain, swelling and sensitivity in the gums for no apparent reason.
– Bad breath.
– Loose teeth, they look longer and longer, change in the pattern of the jaw.
The first step is to remove bacteria from the periodontal pockets by scaling and root planing, which involves cleaning bacteria, plaque and calculus from the roots of the teeth.
In more advanced disease, periodontal surgery is applied and in some cases it is necessary to extract one or more teeth. When the active treatment ends, the disease must be controlled (maintenance phase), which is essential to prevent recurrence after a period of time.
The success of advanced implant dentistry makes dental implants a viable and effective alternative for tooth replacement in patients with periodontitis. However, prior to implant placement, periodontal disease must be properly treated to prevent further bone loss and the problem from spreading to the rest of the teeth, and the mouth must be healthy.
Implant treatment must be performed and monitored by highly specialized professionals.
