The poor terrain of the patient(other diseases, medication, genetic predisposition), smoking, the insufficient water share or the absence of a constant and rigorous oral hygiene are all factors that determine the appearance of periodontal disease, the mineralization of the bacterial dental plaque and the appearance of tartar.
Because the gingivitis does not symptomatically manifest through pain, the majority of the patients do not solicit the treatment of the periodontal in the incipient phase and only when they observe gum bleeding, inflammation, halitosis (bad breath), sensation of unpleasant taste, gums tension, mobility of teeth and purulent collection.
The evolution of the periodontal disease may pass unnoticed for months or even years. Statistics have shown that 90% of the adult population presents the periodontal disease or gingivitis in some phases. This is being considered an important cause of teeth loss and this is the reason why periodic control twice a year is very important for everyone.
In our dental clinic, EXCEDENT, we perform dental cleaning, through scaling, professional dental brushing and air-flow with sodium bicarbonate.
The patients are then instructed individually and for free, in order to maintain a good daily hygiene through electrical or manual brushing, the use of dental floss, mouth shower and mouthwash.
From simple gingivitis to advanced phases of periodontal disease, the treatment may be of drug or surgical nature and will be individualized to accurately fit the need of the patient.
The surgical intervention of periodontal bags is performed with great precision, bone addition and immobilization succeed in prolonging the life expectancy of the mobile teeth on the arcade.
