Periodontitis (loosening of the teeth) - the most common chronic public disease.

Periodontitis is an inflammatory disease that develops over many years. The progress of the disease happens in many steps and the treatment is adjusted to the diagnosis. The cause is bacteria in the plaque around the teeth and is worsened by tartar, bad oral hygiene, smoking, stress, a weakened immune system and sometimes hereditary factors and occurrence of certain diseases.

Stage 1:

INFLAMMATION IN THE GUMS = gingivitis

The gums are inflamed and easily get swollen, shiny, soft and bleed easily. The gums start bleeding if touched or when brushed. This is the first warning sign!

TREATMENT: We help you to remove dental film and eventual tartar and teach you how to take care of your oral hygiene to prevent the disease = prophylactic treatment. If you learn how to clean your teeth carefully at least once a day the inflammation will most likely heal very quickly. The gums get backs its healthy pale pink look and firmness (the surface looks like an orange peel) and stop bleeding.

Stage 2:

A MINOR INFLAMMATION IN THE JAW BONE = paradontitis levis

Now the tooth hold is destroyed and the bone around the tooth starts to resorb (dissolve). So called pathological cavities in the gums are created and filled with bacteria and tartar. The loss of bone can be measured with a special instrument or be seen on X-ray pictures.

TREATMENT: The treatment contains the same steps as the treatment for periodontitis including a special moment of treatment when we scrape clean on the depths of the inflamed gum = curettage.

Stage 3:

SERIOUS INFLAMMATION IN THE JAW BONE = paradontitis gravis

Now more that 1/3 of the bone hold around the tooth has disappeared. The cavities in the gums become bigger and inflammation tissue (granulation tissue) grows on the bone. The teeth start to be loose. Bad breath may arise, bad taste including abcess in the area.

TREATMENT: The treatment becomes more advanced and is performed in several steps.
The first stage in the treatment is similar to the one at stage 2 with complete antibacterial input in the cavities in the gums - Atridox® eller Elysol®.
Only after the period of healing, that can last for some moths, you can tell the results of the treatment. Then the treatment will continue with either a continuing scrape on the dept (deep curettage) or a operation with or without bone stimulating proteins - Emdogain®.

Stage 4:

COMPLICATED INFLAMMATION OF THE JAW BONE = paradontitis complicata

This is the final stage of the disease with serious resorption of the bone, characterised by mobility of teeth in all directions. Finally the teeth will fall out.

TREATMENT: Often only tooth extraction is the only option left.

In our opinion, the most important thing is that periodontitist is discovered, treated and prevented in time. There are far too many untreated patients.

PLEASE BEAR IN MIND THAT PERIODONTITIS IS A DISEASE CAUSED BY BACTERIA AND SHOULD BE CONSIDERED AS AN INFECTIOUS DISEASE!
