At Hident Clinic, we have highly qualified specialists to help you prevent and combat periodontal disease.
What is periodontal disease?
Commonly known as pyorrhea, it affects the gums and other tissues of dental support, such as bone. The disease begins with the deposit of plaque on the teeth. If this plaque is not removed by the patient it calcifies and forms the much hated dental tartar. At this point, it is impossible for the patient to remove it by his own means, so that tartar can only be eliminated through a professional dental hygiene performed by our dentists at Clínica Hident.
If we do not, the scaling on the surface of the teeth causes inflammation of the gums, which can get bleeding by simply brushing and sometimes even symptoms such as halitosis or bad breath may also appear.
If left untreated, periodontal disease continues to progress in depth and the tartar extends to the dental roots, causing the appearance of a periodontal pocket, that is, there is loss of bone and the gingiva separates from the tooth, causing a depth of probing Increased. There is a long tooth sensation.
In advanced cases, there is a lot of bone loss and mobility may appear in the tooth causing premature loss due to lack of support.
In summary, it is a disease that affects the supporting tissues of the tooth and, if left untreated, will lead to premature loss of the tooth in question due to lack of support.
