Prevention

If you regularly consult a periodontist for professional hygiene, most likely, you will not have to treat the gums.

Professional hygiene helps maintain healthy gums and teeth. It consists of the timely removal of tartar, cleaning the surface and root of the tooth. This will prevent plaque buildup and tooth decay.

Professional teeth cleaning is especially necessary if you have braces, implants, crowns, bridges, or other orthopedic structures. Self-hygiene in such cases is not enough, because it is difficult to get to the tooth that is under the structure. Occupational hygiene is also important for people with endocrine disorders, heart disease, and other chronic diseases.

 

Treatment

If you do not carry out professional hygiene and do not treat gum condition in time, the disease progresses, destroying the tissues around the tooth. Eventually, the tooth begins to wobble and fall out.

To make a diagnosis at Protezist, you can perform all types of X-ray examination (including computed tomography), get advice from related specialists: surgeon, therapist, and orthopedist.

After the diagnosis, the patient is offered an individual treatment plan. It includes modern therapeutic and surgical methods (including laser therapy, plasmalifting, the use of medicines based on hyaluronic acid). Laser technology allows you to treat and solve cosmetic problems of the gums without pain, blood, and suturing.

Complex surgical treatment or occupational hygiene can be performed under general anesthesia.

 

The main causes of gum disease and tissues around the tooth

The leading cause of gum disease is poor oral hygiene, smoking. It is resulting in plaque and tartar. The other reasons can also be incorrect occlusion and curvature of the teeth, incorrectly installed fillings, crowns, and other orthopedic structures. Diseases can also be caused by frequent stress, chronic illness, or a genetic predisposition.
