They will not have to be taught there if they are diagnosed with periodontitis at an early stage.
Bleeding gums during brushing your teeth, bad breath, moving teeth ... In the future, this can lead to their loss. If you have at least one of the listed symptoms, contact a dentist immediately! - According to the WHO, about 70% of the population suffers from periodontitis - inflammation of surrounding tissues that hold the tooth, - says Roman Hudyma, head of the Rivne Department of Implantology, a dentist-surgeon - How can a person suspect that she has periodontitis? - If the tooth moves back and forth (from tongue to lip), but does not move to the side, this is the first stage of parodontitis. It is not complicated in the treatment. The second stage is when the tooth moves back and forth, and also to the side, but does not move up and down. This means that bone support is not completely lost, so the tooth can still be saved.
The third stage is when the tooth moves back and forth, to the side, and also when we just press it, pick up a finger, and the tooth rises. This means that there is no support for the bone or support for the toothache machine. Such a tooth often has to be removed.
The main complaints of periodontitis - bleeding gums during tooth brushing, bad breath and significant movement of teeth. In this case, you must necessarily consult with the periodontologist. A dentist of a wide profile may suspect periodontitis, but a full-time periodontal doctor should deal with a complete diagnosis. You will need to make a series of either X-ray targets or panoramic shots. On the panoramic view we can see the volume of the bone relative to the crown of the tooth. If the patient has a complaint of mobility and bleeding in the area of one tooth, this is a local periodontitis (within a single tooth or segment). If moving all teeth - generalized. - Why is periodontitis? - In 85% of cases, the cause is poor hygiene. Also, the cause may be incorrect seals or prosthetic constructions, which have hanging edges. Under these often food is sliced. The patient can not completely clean them or he was not explained how to do it correctly. There is local inflammation of the gums and adjacent tissues. With such inflammatory processes, people go for more than one year. As a result, there is loss of bone tissue under the gums. In this place, a deep zuboysenna pocket appears, where bacteria will live and multiply. A local periodontitis will develop near one tooth. The same is true if the patient does not clean the teeth well, especially the interdental gaps. The best way to do this is by using dental yoghurts - the dental floss is not so effective. One of the causes of periodontitis can be a cluster of teeth that does not allow them to clean them properly, as well as a traumatic bite (due to overload). We put brackets for such patients. - And how to prevent this sickness? What should I do? - The main prevention is quality personal hygiene, as well as professional (once every six months). For people who already have a problem or are prone to this disease, prevention should be done once a quarter. If you have been diagnosed with periodontitis, this does not mean that you need to remove one or all teeth. You can extend the life of their use, but provided that you undergo periodontal treatment and you will be properly cared for.
