Surgery and Periodontology
“It is improperly thought that the teeth are held in place exclusively by the gums which, instead, are only the outermost part of a great architectural work: the periodontal apparatus which consists of the alveolar bone, periodontal ligament, radicular cement and gums. A special branch of dentistry deals with this apparatus, responsible for the stability of the teeth: periodontology”.
Periodontal disease begins when one or more elements of the periodontal apparatus, after having been colonised by numerous bacterial species, stop exercising their supporting function causing tooth mobility and triggering a pathology better known by the popular term of pyorrhea. However, this is an advanced stage of the disease (which can lead to the loss of one or more or all the dental elements) which could be avoided by paying attention to the signs that appear long before tooth mobility.
Today, periodontitis can be prevented and effectively cured, as long as it is not neglected until it reaches its last stages, allowing the preservation of teeth up to the advanced age. Chronic irreversible periodontitis (bone disease) is always preceded by reversible gingivitis (gum disease) which must be recognised and treated in a timely manner. It is advisable to know the tools and techniques suitable for prevention, treatment of periodontal disease and maintenance of gum health.
Prevention consists of carrying out professional oral hygiene and follow-up sessions at regular intervals and in performing the right home hygiene procedures communicated by the hygienist, who will present the tools to be used and explain how to best use them. They will be simple means like a toothbrush, dental floss and mouthwash, recommended case by case according to personalised schemes.
Regarding the treatment of periodontal lesions, there are a series of more or less complex clinical procedures that, if accompanied by appropriate home hygiene techniques, can restore acceptable stability to the teeth. Subsequently, periodic checks allow us to establish if the expected results have been achieved and if they remain stable over time.
