Periodontology is a branch of dentistry that deals with the condition of the tissues surrounding the tooth. The maintenance of teeth depends on them. Disturbing symptoms, such as uncovering surfaces of tooth roots, their increased mobility, bleeding, unpleasant smell from the mouth or changes in the appearance of the gums should prompt a periodontal consultation.
The condition of the periodontium depends on the bacteria that settle on the surface of tooth roots. The soft plaque consisting of food sediment and bacteria is gradually mineralized, turning into tartar. This causes inflammation and gradual bone loss and lowering of the gums. Because inflammatory reactions have an immunological background, in the weakened, the elderly, cancer patients, and persons with weakened immune resistance, inflammation of the periodontium deepens. People with hormonal disorders (adolescence or pregnancy) can also suffer from this type of ailment.
The removal of tartar, dental deposits, and polishing of exposed root surfaces is the task of hygienic procedures of scaling and sandblasting. They should be carried out at least once a year, and in people at risk of periodontal disease every 3-6 months. We provide special care to patients after implantological procedures, where increased hygiene guarantees the preservation of implants.
