Periodontitis is a disease that unfortunately affects more and more young patients. But with early diagnosis and periodontal treatment did on time, the progression of the disease can be stopped and gums and teeth can be saved.
Gingivitis and periodontitis are some of the most common diseases in the oral cavity.
Gingivitis is an inflammatory disease limited to the gingiva (also known as soft tissues or gums). One of the first and most characteristic signs of this disease is bleeding gums. Other symptoms are swollen and red gums. The good news is that gingivitis is a reversible disease, as long as it is diagnosed in time and the necessary treatment is applied.
Unlike gingivitis, periodontitis is a process that involves not only the gingiva but progresses in-depth and affects the underlying bone of the skull.
Once developed, the process continues to progress over time if left untreated. In this case, it can lead to baring of the teeth and subsequent tooth shaking. This is one of the main reasons for tooth extraction in the elderly. That is why we at VM Dent monitor very closely the presence of even the initial forms of this disease, which, if treated properly, allows to stop its progression.
