Periodontology

Periodontology is the specialist area of Dental Medicine aimed at preventing, diagnosing and treating diseases which affect the periodontum, in other words, the set of tissues which include, in addition to the gum, the bone and the periodontal ligament, responsible for maintaining the firmness of teeth in the upper jaw.

Periodontal diseases are brought about by the accumulation of bacteria in the tissues of the oral cavity. The depositing of bacterial plaque and tartar (calcified bacterial plaque) on the furrow existing between the gum and the teeth brings about a chronic inflammation which destroys the tissues supporting the teeth.

Periodontal diseases can be divided into two major groups: Gingivitis and Periodontitis.

Gingivitis is caused by the accumulation of bacteria in the gingival furrow, bringing about inflammation and consequent redness and bleeding of the gum. Although anyone with deficient oral hygiene is liable to develop gingivitis, certain factors such as pregnancy, puberty, poorly positioned teeth or the use of prosthesis which are hard to hygienise foster the appearance of the pathology.

When gingivitis is not correctly diagnosed and treated, the bacterial infection may progress, becoming a more complex problem which affects other tissues besides the gums. Periodontitis causes the irreversible loss of bone, causing teeth to move, being the main cause of tooth loss in adults. Emotional stress, smoking or systemic diseases like diabetes may serve as risk factors in the appearance of the disease.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Periodontal Diseases

The diagnosis and consequent treatment of periodontal diseases allows an improvement in the oral health and aesthetics of patients. In the case of gingivitis, treatment involves the removal of all bacterial plaque and accumulated tartar, thereby eliminating bad taste and oral odours. During treatment the patient learns the procedures for correct oral hygiene.

In the case of Periodontitis, it is not possible to replace the bone which has already been lost. The objective is to halt the progression of the disease by eliminating the infection. To this end, the deposits of bacterial plaque and tartar are removed from the periodontal pockets. In more complex cases, periodontal surgery is required during which the roots are exposed so that cleaning can be carried out properly. Having completed the treatment, it is incumbent upon the patient to comply with the maintenance programme which includes specific hygiene measures and regular visits to one of the Oral Hygiene specialists of MALO CLINIC.
