Periodontitis is a disease that causes focal inflammation at the top of the tooth root. Clinically manifested in the form of swelling of the gums and provokes aching pain when biting on an inflamed tooth. It proceeds in acute and chronic form. Sometimes it occurs with advanced caries.
A severe stage of periodontitis is diagnosed by an abscess formed in the area of inflammation. Purulent fluid is released from the vesicle formation, the patient experiences weakness, malaise, aching pain in the tooth area. In some cases, displacement and shakiness of the diseased organ is observed. Tooth treatment is required.
In order not to lose a tooth due to periodontitis, contact the clinic once every six months for prevention. Consulting a doctor at the first pain will help to avoid complications and help to conduct a less traumatic treatment. The best method for diagnosing a disease at any stage is x-ray.
In the picture, periodontitis will manifest itself as an expansion of the periodontal gap. In the area of inflammation, a clear darkening of various shapes is distinguished. Depending on the form, the doctor determines the stage of the disease. Mild stages of the disease can be identified by a slight reddening of the gums.
Methods of treating periodontitis at the Swiss-Dent Clinic
Periodontitis treatment is effectively carried out in two ways: therapeutic and surgical. The first method is suitable for the chronic and acute stages of the disease, when persistent inflammation is observed. Treatment takes place in several stages:
- The root canals clean and disinfect since the infection that causes periodontitis enters through them.
- Canals are temporarily sealed to tightly close the cavity and prevent further spread of infection.
- Antimicrobial treatment of the gums to relieve inflammation. When the inflammatory process has passed, establish a permanent filling and fill the tooth.
In especially advanced cases of periodontitis, treatment is useless and a tooth with a root formation must be removed. After the procedure, the gum is restored within 2-3 weeks and Sweet Dent specialists start prosthetics.
