Periodontal disease is a bacterial infection that slowly attacks the periodontium, that is, the tissue that supports the tooth (gums, bone and root cement). Very often it is painless and when it is diagonalized it can be too late to recover the compromised teeth.
The diagnosis is made by our dentists, through a periodontal probe that is carried out by inserting a millimeter probe between the gum and the tooth. If the depth of this probing is greater than 4 / 5mm we can already speak of periodontal disease. In addition to the survey it is also necessary to carry out dental x-rays that can be done at our Clinics.
Regular check-ups (at least once a year) allow for an early diagonosis of periodontal disease in order to be able to intervene promptly before it leads to tooth loss.
1st PHASE : Photographs and X-rays of the patient. Instructions on personal dental hygiene.One or more professional oral hygiene sessions.
2nd PHASE: Root smoothing (procedure that involves removing subgingival tartar in 4 or 6 sessions)
3rd PHASE: Surgery, foreseen in the most important cases, which involves a surgical detachment of the gum, removal of all infected and compromised periodontal tissue and eventual regeneration of the lost bone and periodontium. Finally, suture of the gums and subsequent post-surgery checks.
