Periodontal disease degenerates the
bone and soft tissues that support the teeth themselves caused by
bacteria (germs) present in the inflammatory process. It affects one or more teeth. Most often due to lack of hygiene, dental
plaque starts to build up on teeth. The gums are reddening, swollen and
gradually start bleeding. This phenomenon is called gingivitis
persistence of gingivitis when untreated transforms into periodontitis
time, plaque bacteria begin to produce toxins that irritate the gums and
inflammation becomes chronic. As such, it leads to loss of bone and soft
tissues - the natural teeth supporters. This phase is followed by stability destruction, thus
to gradual teeth loss.
In order to avoid or at least slow down the progress of gingivitis, it is essential to regularly brush your teeth, floss and visit the dentist for a check up, early diagnosis and get advice on preventive measures.
Bear in mind that oral and general health are mutually connected and reflect one another. Give your dentist and general practitioner appointments a priority!
