Periodontics

Periodontics in Albania

Periodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with the treatment of diseases of the periodontium.

Periodontal diseases or periodontal problems target the gums and their surroundings. These include the tooth, the alveolar bone, the root cementum, the periodontal ligament, and the dental root.

Poor hygiene and poor removal of oral calculus will develop bacterial colonies that will end up in the gum root. Therefore, inflammation will grow based on the infection and generate the disease known as Gingivitis.

This must be treated as soon as possible and in a proper way, or it can go to the second stage of reproduction called periodontitis, the most difficult disease to treat when we talk about periodontics.

Periodontal disease, periodontitis, or even called pyorrhea, is the worst stage of gingivitis. This is seen from the swelling of the gums, extending to the ligaments and the dental base that supports the dental line.

It eats and infects the entire area until the tooth is no longer stable and falls out due to tissue necrosis. Although it is very common, it is quite dangerous and is even one of the first reasons why teeth fall out in adults.


Scaling and root planning and even periodontal surgery are essential in these cases so that they do not become critical. At Amaris Dental Clinic we can take care professionally of every issue related to your oral health. What are you waiting for when you can have a stunning smile and improve your oral at the most affordable budget?

Do I have gum disease?

To determine if you have developed periodontal disease, you should look at your gums in the mirror and be guided by their shade. If you notice that they are somewhat swollen and have an unnatural reddish color, you may have caught some disease.

 

In addition to this, there are also some common signs, such as your toothbrushing not lasting with a pleasant smell as long as it used to. If your gums are more sensitive and even if when chewing food, solid or otherwise, or you feel pain, you may be going through the dental disease.

 

Symptomatology:

 

  • Bleeding gums: This is the main symptom of a dental complication, and is usually noticeable when brushing your teeth. But when it is in a more developed state, it may even appear at night while you are resting.

 

  • The appearance of spaces between the teeth: Bacteria are very abrasive, so they will do their best to get into the gum cavity and near the bone. This will cause the dental tissue to be infested with bacterial plaque, losing volume and leaving gaps between each tooth.

 

  • Dental mobility: As mentioned, the teeth have lost their base and stability. Therefore, they will be more prone to wobble and dental mobility will begin to be observed. This can lead to tooth loss.

 

  • Chewing pain or acute tooth sensitivity: There is controversy about this, as some people argue that some people have greater tooth sensitivity than others. But in any case, if this type of symptom is present, a specialist or dentist should be consulted. It is not usually a good sign or something normal.

 

  • Bad breath: This is one of the most characteristics and ranges from bad breath or halitosis to bad taste in the mouth. Many claims that this is bad oral digestion when in most cases this is due to untreated oral disease. Therefore, it is important to see a dentist who specializes in periodontics, as he or she will be able to examine you and guide you towards better dental health.

 

The first professional assessment when checking for periodontal disease, gingivitis, or periodontitis, is a visual examination. In this way, the specialist can verify the circumstances in which the gum is. Since, as we mentioned before, bleeding, swelling, and redness of the tissue around the gum is an evident sign of the presence of periodontal disease.


This is followed by a further examination in a periodontal clinic. This is done with a dental probe, which helps to perform an odontogram in each base of each tooth of the patient, so its evolution will be considered and it will be decided which ones will be intervened.


There are some serious cases where in addition to these examinations, a radiological search and even a microbiological study of the bacteria present in the oral cavity will be performed. This is only used for periodontal disease in a very advanced and aggressive stage.

What complications can periodontal disease lead to?

Believe it or not, periodontitis or gingivitis can wreak havoc on a person’s overall health. Common risks include increased vascular problems, destabilization of diabetes, lung or respiratory infections, and in the case of pregnancy, can lead to miscarriage or premature birth.

 

  • Diabetes: These two diseases have a bilateral similarity and of great importance. If either of these two is not treated in time, they can affect a person’s overall health. Its relationship with this one is seen in being an infectious pathology that distorts the metabolic-endocrinological state of an organism. Therefore, a patient suffering from diabetes or a similar disease has a higher percentage of presenting periodontitis. And this can promote or create insulin resistance, making it more difficult to control the glycemic control of the person.

 

It should be noted that periodontitis breaks down the soft tissue or base that supports the tooth. This creates a receptivity of the bones and develops deformations in the immunocompetent cells, also on others that participate in the prevention of inflammations.

 

People who suffer from diabetes already have a decrease in salivary fluid, therefore tartar and dental plaque accumulate in greater quantity in the teeth causing cavities, infectious cells, and periodontal diseases.

 

  • Cardiovascular disease: Periodontal Diseases can also present dangerous factors in the face of the progression of arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease. This is an inflammatory condition that can be worsened by far-reaching infectious and inflammatory entities such as periodontitis, which makes it possible to develop processes of greater professional acuity, such as severe coronary syndromes. Through studies, several of the bacteria fundamental to the development of concurrent periodontal disease were detected in the atheroma plaques of blood vessels.

 

  • This discovery dictates that when periodontitis is not treated in time, there can become a discharge of bacterial plaque into the bloodstream, where we can see toxins and multiple inflammatory components that will be the cause of many deformities, degenerations, or diseases in various parts of the patient’s body. It can also be added that the increase of these organisms to the blood can create an obstruction process, increasing the possibility of a heart attack or infarction.

 

Both diseases have similar risk factors that can be moldable, such as smoking, severe obesity, among many others. These are closely related to the patient’s lifestyle. Therefore, the treatment of periodontal disease should have additional guidelines to help patients to avoid habits that are detrimental to their health. Such as the elimination of tobacco, sugar, and even the implementation of the exercise. This will help their overall health, including the gum area.
