What is it?
Periodontology is the specialty of dentistry that studies supporting structures of teeth, as well as diseases and conditions that affect them. The supporting tissues are known as the periodontium, which includes the gingiva (gums), alveolar bone, cementum, and the periodontal ligament. Many techniques are used to counter periodontitis, a disease that affects just about 80% of the population in different levels.
What is the treatment?
The initial phase is a decontamination phase by a soft procedure. Your gum’s reaction to this stage is then reevaluated to see your receptiveness of the treatment. Afterwards, regular dental follow-ups every three months are recommended to initialize partial recovery, and in certain cases, it is enough to reestablish your condition. We say “partial” recovery because gum disease is a chronic problem. We can stabilize and control it although you can very rarely expect 100% recovery.
Can I recover completely?
Like diabetes, periodontal diseases can be controlled, but can never be totally cured. It is a chronic disease that will need the battle of a lifetime to stay far from the aftereffects that are associated with it. However, regular dental visits and a good hygiene at home make more encouraging success rates.
Gingivitis and Periodontitis
These are the most common periodontal diseases. In Canada, they are primarily responsible for the loss of teeth in adults.
– Gingivitis is inflammation of the gums, caused by inadequate hygiene and plaque buildup. The gums are reddish, swollen and may bleed when brushing. Gingivitis is easily treatable with proper care when it is detected quickly.
– Periodontitis is a more serious periodontal disease that results from gingivitis that has not been treated in time. Inflammation progresses to the other tissues that support the tooth and can go as far as to cause the degradation of the jawbone. The teeth then become mobile and the patient risks losing them permanently. Periodontitis must be managed by a periodontally qualified dentist in order to limit further damage.
