Development If Periodontal Disease Normal Tooth Vs Periodontists        

The first step of the inflammation of the gum is called “Gingivitis” 

The symptoms of Gingivitis are: 

  • The gum becomes swollen, red, and, sometimes,
  • The gum can bleed easily

Gingivitis can normally be reversed by a good dental hygiene comprising:

  • Daily flossing and brushing, and,
  • Regular “deep” cleaning performed by a Dentist or a Dental Hygienist.

           If the Gingivitis cannot be reversed by a good Dental Hygiene, then a Periodontal treatment is needed.

Periodontal Treatments:

The first step is Non-Surgical: It is conventionally called Deep Cleaning, comprising Scaling and Root Planing.” 

This Procedure made usually by a G.P. Dentist, comprises:

This procedure helps gum tissue to heal and periodontal pockets to shrink. After the deep cleaning, most of the patients do not require any further treatment, only preventive care/good Dental Hygiene.

  • Scaling: removing the dental plaque and calculus/tartar, then:
  • Root Planing: Smoothing or planing of the exposed root surfaces, by removing Tartar
  • If the Deep Cleaning has not proved successful – generally because periodontal pockets are deep and the supporting bone is lost, A Surgery might be necessary to avoid tooth loss. This Surgery will be made by a Periodontist.
  • Surgical Periodontal treatment:
    • This procedure is only made by a Periodontist, a Specialist Dentist who has specialized in the treatment of diseases that affect the supporting structure of the teeth including the gum and bone tissues.
    • Surgery will allow the Periodontist to access areas under the gum and along the roots where tartar and plaque have accumulated.
    • The Periodontist may recommend additional procedures like bone grafts, used to rebuild or reshape the bone damaged by Periodontal disease.
