HOW TO TREAT PERIODONTAL DISEASE?

Lately, periodontics experienced 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.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS AND CONSEQUENCES OF PERIODONTAL DISEASE?

There are many forms of periodontal disease, from very mild cases of gingivitis to permanent gingivitis or periodontitis. Symptoms of gum disease are very uncomfortable 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 an 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.

At the Štimac Dental Clinic, our professional and experienced staff headed by doctor Maja Jagodić-Štimac and Filip Štimac will use the latest methods of periodontal therapy to make sure that your problem is approached in the most adequate way.

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 esthetic reasons and the treatment that accompanies it is the esthetic installment of veneers.

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.

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.

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 which are 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.

 

What our patients say about us?

 
The causes of periodontal disease are mainly poor oral hygiene, poor diet, or smoking, which leads to excessive accumulation of bacteria in the oral cavity. In addition to the bacteria that cause problems and pain, tartar that is created between the teeth and gums can also affect the lower gums and stimulate inflammatory pain. Tartar needs to be cleaned regularly because it is considered as a part of oral hygiene.

Periodontal therapy is conducted by jaw quadrant and 4 visits are necessary, but it is possible to handle two quadrants per visit. It is very important to note that periodontal therapy does not stop periodontal disease but slows it down and it is crucial to slow down the disease and have a very high level of oral hygiene in order to minimize bacteria collected in the areas around the teeth. Furthermore, regular dental visits are also recommended where the dentist can follow up on the dental condition of the patient and the progress of the disease.

If treatment of periodontitis is not started on time, the teeth eventually become shakier (mobile), the bone recedes and all this eventually results in the loss of teeth which is an extraordinary shock for everyone.

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.

In the stage where the periodontal disease has progressed and tooth mobility is visible, they can be installed with a bridge that connects the teeth, and therefore they are no longer mobile, which eases daily functions for the patient such as chewing.
