One of the ten most significant social diseases of our time. Due to its slow, chronic, sometimes completely asymptomatic development, it often remains completely undiagnosed. The sudden onset of tooth mobility is already a severe symptom and it is sometimes impossible to maintain them. Little is known about the link between severe periodontitis and diabetes, cardiovascular and other systemic diseases. Control of periodontitis has a beneficial effect on general health and is absolutely mandatory in patients with severe diseases.
Periodontitis is an infection that destroys tooth-supporting structures and is associated with discomfort, bad breath, sometimes bleeding, bone loss and eventually tooth loss. The molten bone also limits the ability to place implants. Periodontology and Implantology go hand in hand. The controlled and stable periodontium is health and an excellent opportunity for implant placement.
Modern dentistry provides great opportunities for the treatment of periodontitis and partially restores the lost crown and bone through drug and non-surgical therapy, laser therapy. In severe cases of periodontitis, precise surgical treatment can lead to the preservation of natural teeth and increase the volume of molten bone.
Prophylactic consultations with a periodontist, careful analysis of the panoramic photo by the general practitioner and the competent opinion of the implantologist are important for maintaining our health and smile.
