Treatment of gums - you will not face a toothless smile with "Oleksiuk"

Лечение десен You are unlikely to be crazy, but you can lose your teeth as a result of gum disease. Therefore, it is better to pay attention to this problem.

According to the Ministry of Health, each fifth person in the world risks being toothless if it is not timely to diagnose gum disease.

The most common diseases of the periodontal gums, that is, the tissue that holds the tooth is gingivitis, periodontitis and periodontal disease. But gingivitis is the initial stage of periodontitis (we have told a little about gingivitis). When a person comes to the dentistry at the stage of gingivitis, it is successfully treated.

The process of transition of gingivitis to periodontitis is very simple. Before, periodontitis was considered a visiting card of old age. And now everything begins from childhood. As a rule, no one pays attention to the illness and it does not have any characteristic features. Somewhere one forgets to brush teeth and goes to bed with teeth not cleaned - that is, unsatisfactory brushing of teeth. Therefore, already in adulthood 85 - 90% of people suffer from periodontitis. The phenomenon of gingivitis is always present, but already in a more advanced stage.

Also, people who have bad habits, or who work in difficult productions, as well as patients who have a genetic predisposition to periodontal tissue disease, are also at risk with periodontal disease.

Periodontitis, in medical language, is a multifactorial gum disease caused by several causes, such as irregular bite, tooth disturbance, deficiency of protein and vitamins in the diet. By the way, the structure of food plays an important role in the development of the disease.

Very soft food does not help to clean teeth and does not give a normal load while chewing. This is a direct path to periodontitis. A bad habit, like chewing on one side of the jaw, is very dangerous for teeth and gums.

But, nevertheless, the most important cause of periodontitis is poor mouth hygiene, which causes accumulation of pathogenic germs causing gingival infections in the gums. At first they bleed when cleaning teeth, when eating solid food, and then the ligament apparatus and the teeth themselves are involved in the process of destruction. At first, teeth are moving, and in the end, they can completely fall out.

Symptoms of periodontitis.

 Unfortunately, when people come to our dentistry with the problem of periodontitis, it's a long-running stage of the disease. Periodontitis begins with bleeding gums and unpleasant odor from the mouth. You can do a small test - take a hard apple, bite it, and if the apple has a pink rim, then you urgently need to go to see the doctor. Or just pay attention to the toothpaste foam when brushing teeth: if it is painted in pink, these are already symptoms of periodontitis.

What are the consequences of periodontitis and the effect of this disease on the whole body? In addition to the toothless smile, the infection in the mouth cavity and the microorganisms that multiply there, have the ability to spread to the most remote corners of our body. And it happens through blood, by swallowing directly (through the gastrointestinal tract), and even with the help of inhaling these microorganisms. Subsequently, you can fall ill with such diseases as a special type of pneumonia, chronic gastritis, cholecystitis, pyelonephritis, and endocarditis (this is inflammation of the inner lining of the heart, in particular, the damage to the valve apparatus). And if we talk about pregnant women, it can lead to premature births.

Let's summarize ... To not miss a disease, you need to pay attention to 5 symptoms:

  • Discomfort and inflammation of the gums.
  • Bleeding of gums.
  • Bad breath.
  • Sensitivity of the teeth.
  • Dental plaque or tartar.

Treatment of periodontitis.

Once you have seen the first symptoms of periodontitis mentioned above, you do not have to start self-medication. Remember - this is already a sign of pathology. If there are dental deposits, then the patient is not able to self-clean this cluster of microbes - here you should make an appointment with a dentist. But between visits to the dentist, during a fairly long period (with gingivitis, it is possible to cure this disease completely) thanks to the intensive hygiene, which we teach with the help of additional means, a person can keep the mouth cavity in normal form itself.

Dentists do not only have an external review of the mouth cavity, but also measure periodontal pockets. X-ray examination is done. An orthopantomogram is performed, where we can see changes in bone tissue and the condition of each tooth.

The next stage of treatment for periodontitis is mouth hygiene. Our hygienist will provide a gentle ultrasound treatment of each tooth, removing dental deposits (tartar) above and below, polishing teeth and interdental gaps. After mechanical treatment, the stage of deep fluoridation of the enamel of the teeth is performed to reduce their sensitivity. Immediately the periodontologist  will prescribe medication for home use. Our dentist will help you find the right dental care for your mouth cavity, such as a toothpaste, a brush and a rinse aid for teeth.

The difference between gingivitis, periodontitis and periodontal disease

For a person without special medical education, it is difficult to distinguish gum disease. Therefore, we in the table there is a description of the characteristic signs of gingivitis, periodontitis and periodontal disease

GINGIVITIS  PERIODONTITIS PERIODONTAL DISEASE
 Initial (weak) stage of gum disease.   2nd stage of gum disease The severe stage of gingivitis and periodontitis.
Inflammation of the tooth surface (bleeding israrely possible). Pain in gums, tooth mobility, rarely itching.

Affection of bone tissue which causes tooth loss.

 

 Is it true that the wrongly selected toothpaste can damage gums and teeth?

“Oleksyuk” dentistry does not recommend for patients with periodontitis the use of whitening pastes in any case, as it will bring more harm than good, as they contain a lot of abrasive that makes microcracks on the enamel and accordingly damages gums. A change in the color of the teeth can be done only by professional means and only in dental clinics. Remember about the health of the gums - it's serious.

What to do not to be ashamed of your smile?

Everyone says that one has to brush teeth, and everyone answers - we clean our teeth! Brushing your teeth and brushing your teeth properly are two different concepts, so you need to follow the recommendations given by the dentist and brush teeth for at least 3 minutes, before breakfast and after breakfast, and before bedtime. Cleaning should be of really high-quality, it should clean, not just to be done. In conclusion, I would like to say that when you find the first signs of gum disease, you urgently need to make an appointment at the dentistry. Even keeping all the rules - the mandatory part of the prophylaxis of the treatment of periodontal tissues should be the supervision of a dentist - periodontologist.
