Are you experiencing gum bleeding, swollen gums or gum disease?
You should contact your dentist if your gum bleeding does not go away and if your teeth feel more and more moving over the years. With a good diagnosis, preventative treatments and maintaining perfect oral hygiene, it is possible to slow down and keep this progressive disease under control. It is impossible to completely cure it, but it can preventably extend the life of your teeth by 10 to 20 years.
In our dental center, we perform periodontal therapy using Waterlase iPlus. This water-pressure laser is a revolutionary tool that enables accurate and accurate healing – it targets only the inflamed area, and healthy tissue remains intact.
Periodontics – Parodontology
Gum bleeding, swollen gums and gum pain can point to one of the easier or more difficult bacterial gum inflammations. If the possible cause of the bleeding and pain isn’t discovered on time, there is a possibility that the inflammation has become chronic and that the success of the treatment is questionable. This is the very branch of dentistry that is concerned with these issues. In case of periodontics, prevention is the key to every successful rehabilitation. Depending on the degree of infection, periodontal diseases can be divided into several levels.
- Gingivitis – the mildest form of periodontal disease. It is caused by bad or insufficient oral hygiene. Inflammations cause the redness of the gingiva and light bleeding during brushing. It is at this stage that people don’t pay enough attention to the problem, because they are used to the constant light bleeding of the gums while brushing the teeth, but if the problem is neglected, the concentration of bacteria in the periodontium increases and the disease progresses from gingivitis into a more serious problem – periodontitis.
- Periodontitis – we divide it into several degrees of progression; aggressive, chronic and necrotizing.
In case of periodontitis, the toxins that gather in dental pockets cause the teeth to separate from the gum and make the tooth ever looser, so in the end, it has to be extracted or it will fall out by itself. This ugly process doesn’t have big symptoms for the most part and in 70% of cases, the patients come to an examination without knowing they have the disease and then justify the looseness of the teeth with ageing. Periodontitis, i.e. parodontitis, besides occurring in patients with bad oral hygiene, poor nutrition, obesity and smoking, also occurs in people that have genetically inherited that insidious dental periodontium disease.
It is necessary to contact your dentist if the gum bleeding doesn’t stop and if over the years you feel that the teeth are becoming more movable. With a good diagnosis, preventive treatments and maintaining perfect oral hygiene it is possible to slow down that progressive disease and keep it under control. It is impossible to cure completely, but preventively it is possible to prolong the lifetime of teeth for 10 to 20 years.
