Periodontics

Paradontosis is a periodontal disease that arises as a result of a long-lasting inflammatory process caused by the presence of pathogenic microorganisms in the oral cavity. Bacteria accumulate in the interdental spaces and at the interface between the teeth and the soft tissue of the gums. The sediment created as a result of this process (so-called plaque) is transformed into tartar which causes irritation and painful swelling of the gums. Over time, the gums shrink to expose the dental necks, which become very sensitive to temperature changes and to sweet and sour foods (extremely painful condition). If the process is not identified and stopped in time, the teeth lose their proper attachment in the jaw and they just start to fall out.

Daily oral hygiene is very important as it helps to prevent periodontitis but brushing your teeth in the morning and evening is not enough. To avoid this insidious disease, regular professional preventive actions are required such as plaque removal. Regular dental check-ups also allow you to identify the problem in advance and take immediate treatment. If periodontitis is detected at the advanced stage, it may be necessary to perform the so-called curettage which is cleaning tooth pockets of stone and the teeth roots from accumulated granulation tissue. In this way dentist stimulates patient to regenerate the epithelium and creates conditions for re-connecting the periodontal ligament.
