Periodontic treatments aim to treat diseases related to the gums and the bone that supports the teeth. We provide solutions to periodontal diseases such as periodontitis and gingivitis.
These diseases affect more than 50% of the population over 35 years of age and constitute the main cause of tooth loss in adults. Usually these diseases are caused by the accumulation of calculus and bacterial plaque.
They affect the tissue that supports our teeth, the gums. Depending on the state of the disease, they can be defined as gingivitis or periodontitis
- Gingivitis: When the disease only affects the gum, it normally turns red, becomes inflamed and begins to bleed. If detected early, it is easily reversible.
- Periodontitis: When gingivitis is not treated in time it becomes periodontitis (colloquially known as pyorrhea). In this case, the infection progresses to below the gum, attacking the root and bone that hold the tooth, and can cause its loss. Periodontitis is irreversible and affects other aspects of our health as well, such as stomach problems, bad breath, cosmetic changes, even heart problems.
