UnCategorized Facts on Periodontal Disease .plications that arise in the suclus are collectively referred to as periodontal disease. The suclus is the gap between the gum and the tooth.The periodontal disease has within it two diseases; gingivitis which causes wounds and bleeding in the gums and periodontitis which destroys the bone and tissue that secure the teeth. Periodontal disease is caused by bacteria. Although there are healthy bacteria in the mouth all the time, an increase and imbalance between the healthy and harmful bacteria cause the harmful bacteria to increase such that they form plaque on the teeth. Plaque being a soft mass is easily removable, but if left to accumulate it forms calculus, also known as tartar, which cements itself onto the tooth’s surface making it difficult to remove. When the gums are inflamed, in the case of gingivitis, and medication is administered, especially in the initial stages, treatment is very effective. But the disease can recur if mouth hygiene is not maintained. In periodontitis, other than the gums being inflamed there is a deterioration of the gum tissues and bone structure that support the teeth. Gingivitis disease always precedes periodontitis disease. These diseases can arise due to various diseases such as type 1 diabetes, down syndrome, AIDS and white blood cell disorders. The periodontal disease symptoms generally begin in the early 20s to the mid-30s, and if left untreated could progress to chronic and aggressive levels of the disease. In addition, stress, poor health, harmful lifestyle and smoking are also factors that contribute to the occurrence of these diseases. The periodontal diseases can be treated through deep cleaning, scaling and root planing. The dentist will use both ultrasonic and manual instruments to remove the calculus. Once the cleaning is done, the dentist will check the sulccus around the teeth and determine their depth so as to ascertain the health of the gum. Should there be an abscess, sugery may be necessary. During surgery, diseased tissue is removed to .pletely eliminate the bacteria, repositioning, shaping of bones, gum and tissue is also done so as to support the teeth. To stimulate bone and gum tissue growth, guided regeneration technique may be used. In some cases, bone grafting may be done for severe bone loss. Should one loose teeth due to these diseases, teeth implants can be done. In order to prevent these diseases, a healthy lifestyle, good oral hygiene and dental checks are of paramount importance.
