Periodontitis is the most prevalent reason for tooth loss in adults and causes teeth to gradually lose support. Due to the fact that severe gum disease frequently proceeds painlessly, most people are not aware they have it.
Gum disease’s progression can be stopped by having regular checkups with your dentist and dental hygienist. Patients with periodontitis are frequently referred to Periodontist or gum specialist
This may result in bleeding and makes the gums appear red rather than pink. When brushing their teeth, patients could observe blood on their toothbrush or in the sink.
You must not overlook bleeding gums, just as you would not ignore blood pouring out of any other part of your body. Gingivitis can be treated with straightforward procedures as well as improvements in hygiene practices.
Regular dental and hygiene checkups can help identify this disease’s early warning signals and stop it from progressing. At Vilafortuny, after cleaning your teeth and eliminating tartar, our hygienist will look for any early indications of gum disease. If you have gum disease that is still in its early stages, the hygienist might suggest deep scaling and root planing, which cleans the area below the gum line and gives your gums a chance to reattach to the teeth’s surface.
In contrast to gingivitis, periodontitis cannot be reversed, however its progress can be slowed down. Your hygienist may recommend a more extensive treatment, such as the placement of a periodontal chip or laser therapy, if your periodontal disease is in moderate to advanced stages.
When used in conjunction with scaling and root planing, the Perio Chip has been demonstrated to be a very safe and successful supplementary treatment for reducing pocket depth. In the meantime, the use of lasers in the treatment of periodontitis has grown significantly. In addition to killing bacteria, laser therapy is also expected to render bacterial toxins present in root cementum inactive. Combining scaling and root planing with laser therapy to treat periodontal disease seems to improve treatment outcomes and hasten the healing of chronic periodontal pockets.
At Vilafortuny, we treat periodontal disease patients on a daily basis by adhering to a tight protocol and an implemented treatment plan from our team of hygienists, who work closely with our patients.
