Periodontology - bodyguard any teeth deserve

Periodontology is the branch of dentistry that deals with the treatment of the gums. It is estimated that today more people have problems with some form of gum disease, and can no longer rely not on age groups that are exposed to various forms of periodontal disease.

How to treat periodontal disease?

Lately, periodontics experienced the greatest progress. Until now we have considered periodontitis an incurable disease of the gums and accepted the fact of tooth loss.

However, new methods of treatment have remarkable results: the teeth are fixed, and the gum is becoming healthier.

According to the stage of the gum disease, our dentists will offer the best advice and determine which treatments would be adequate for your current situation. Periodontal disease is generally treated with periodontal therapy, which is determined by the stage of the disease severity. Treatment can be done by curettage in a way that special lancets enter the periodontal pockets and curettage (scraping) of the plaque around the roots of teeth is then performed.
If any symptoms are noticed and treatment starts on time, the results are generally very positive.

    Periodontal therapy is a very important part in the process of healing the gums and therefore it is very important to choose professionals who will ensure that the end result is favorable for the patient, and in doing so use the best methods for treating gums.

Treating lowered gums or high gums (gummysmile)

If the gums or gingival exceed the crown of the tooth (the visible part of the tooth) it is possible to surgically remove the excess gums. Furthermore, regarding high gums ( so-called gummy smile) it is possible to raise the gums with surgery or laser and install the veneers on the tooth in order to prolong the tooth and also obtain better visual proportions of the teeth and gums. Surgical or laser gingivectomy is performed mostly for aesthetic reasons and the treatment that accompanies it is the aesthetic installment of veneers.

What are the symptoms and consequences of periodontal disease?

There are many forms of periodontal disease, from very mild cases of gingivitis until permanent gingivitis or periodontitis. Symptoms of gum disease are very uncomfortable feeling because of the painful chewing and consumption of certain foods, slowly pulling the gums and growing teeth stripping or redness and swelling of the gums. A very common symptom of periodontal disease may be unpleasant odor that just does not disappear, but is due to excess bacteria in the oral cavity.

If such symptoms do not begin to heal in time, gum disease can cause serious infections that lead to the loss of teeth or loss of bone structure that supports the teeth. Today, periodontal disease is very widespread and is considered as the most common cause of losing teeth.Because of the very serious and irreversible effects, it is recommended to visit a dentist as soon as possible.

How important is prevention?

Prevention is crucial! When it comes to periodontology, it is very important to maintain certain prevention in order to avoid problems with gums and diseases such as periodontitis.

What we recommend as prevention

Oral hygiene in this branch of dentistry has a very important role, especially as an important means of maintaining oral hygiene. Under oral hygiene, we refer to toothbrushes and toothpaste, interdental brushes and the importance of their implementation, dental floss and brushing methods and the techniques used to apply all of these. Dental floss is very important because it removes plaque and bacteria on surfaces to which it is difficult to reach with a toothbrush. Along with proper brushing at least 2 times a day and flossing, it is also of great importance to brush the tongue as this will remove dead skin cells, bacteria and food residue.

Testimonials

- My problems with my teeth have been going on since the 30's and even though I had regular visits to the dentist, with time, my gums were getting worse and I started isolating myself. The main reason I visited the Polyclinic Štimac was because of my receding gums. I was aware I could lose my teeth and that was not an option. I visited Dr. Štimac and she told me I had come in the initial phase of periodontitis and that we will start with a periodontitis therapy to slow down the disease in progressing. The therapy was not the most pleasant, but it is effective because periodontitis then progresses more slowly. I regularly visit the Polyclinic Štimac and I have periodontitis under control which was my goal. Many thanks to the entire staff of the polyclinic for their kindness and professionalism!

Can implants be installed if periodontal disease is present? t

If the patient has lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontitis, one solution is the installation of implants in order to prevent the progression of the disease and the dental bone in receding.

In the case where the bone is already significantly receded, there is a possibility of installing artificial bone which is the preparation for the actual installation of implants.
