Periodontal disease is a condition that affects gums. It is an infectious, chronic gum problem of lengthy evolution and causes the loss of teeth’s bone support. This disease is also known as pyorrhea or gum disease.

PThe problem originates with plaque which if not removed correctly, with daily brushing and flossing, turns into tartar. Once reaching this point brushing is no longer effective and only a professional dental cleaning can remove the tartar.

PAt Smile Design Boutique we apply preventive measures in order to anticipate future periodontal problems.

Symptoms of periodontal disease

  • Constant bad breath
  • Gums become soft, inflamed and acquire a red colour.
  • Bleeding as a result of brushing or flossing.
  • Gums detach from the teeth, leaving a space between them.
  • Pus appears between the gum and tooth.
  • There is a change in the way partial dentures fit.


Stages of periondontal disease

Gingivitis

This is the least severe form of periodontal disease. In this stage gums become red, inflamed and bleed easily. Usually these symptoms are accompanied by little discomfort therefor the patient does not seek help. This provokes a worsening of the condition. Gingivitis is curable if treated by a professional and if the patient follows the dentist’s guidelines of proper dental care at home.

Mild periodontitis

If gingivitis is not treated, this gum disease may result in periodontitis. In this stage, the disease begins to destroy the bone and gum tissue which support the tooth.
Severe periodontitis: Severe periodontitis sets in if the first stages of this disease are not treated. This is the most advanced form of the disease in which extensive bone and tissue loss occurs.

In our dental clinic
WE TREAT PERIODONTAL HEALTH
in the following way:

Study phase:
We carry out a personalized treatment plan using the latest techniques:

  • Periodontal probing using digitalized probes (Sonda Florida)
  • 3D Radiology study
  • Microbiologic and genetic study (Periodector)

Basic phase:
Elimination of plaque and tartar:

  • Plaque control
  • Root scaling and planning
  • Air polishing system using water and bicarbonate soda
  • Oral hygiene education

Surgical phase:

Only in very advanced cases is basic, regenerative and aesthetic periodontal surgery performed.

In order to avoid discomfort, non-invasive techniques are used to handle pain.

Information: Periodontal surgery is necessary when, after the basic phase, tissue that surrounds teeth presents an unhealthy appearance. Your periodontologist will be able to determine when surgery is necessary. On some occasions, the patient may present aesthetic alterations and/or local recessions (exposed root) in some teeth and this can be treated successfully with aesthetic periodontal surgery. Aesthetic periodontal surgery includes diverse procedures that help maintain a harmonious smile and improve gingival aesthetics.


In our dental clinic
WE MAINTAIN PERIODONTAL HEALTH
in the following way:

Once treatment has ended, the frequency of necessary periodontal check-ups to maintain the achieved results will be indicated by your periodontologist.

Information
Once the first stage of periodontal treatment has been completed and when the specialist has decided that the disease is under control, a regimen of periodic visits will be established. Maintenance is a fundamental stage of periodontal treatment and it is the only way to control periodontal disease over a long period of time due to the possibility of reoccurrence.

In each maintenance visit, your dental hygienist carries out:

  • Verification of the clinical situation of each tooth.
  • Evaluation of your oral hygiene and elimination of any tartar that has formed.

Frequency of these visits will be established by your periodontologist based on the individual needs of each particular case; however, they are usually every 3 to 6 months.

Periodontal maintenance, which is NOT a dental cleaning, is an individualized medical treatment according to the situation of each patient.
