Patients requiring periodontal treatment generally exhibit symptoms of gingivitis and periodontitis. These conditions are primarily caused by bacterial infections that affect the gums and bone supporting the teeth. The initial stage, gingivitis, is characterized by red, swollen gums that bleed. If untreated, it can develop into periodontitis, where the gums began to recede, leading to bone loss, loosening of teeth, and potentially missing tooth.

Periodontal treatment patients

The primary cause of periodontal disease is plaque buildup, but several risk factors can exacerbate the condition:

  • smoking
  • genetic predisposition
  • stress
  • weaken immune system
  • lack of oral hygiene

Signs in patients with periodontitis include persistent bad breath, red or swollen gums, bleeding, painful chewing and sensitive teeth. Advanced periodontitis may require extensive treatment, including deep cleaning of tooth root surfaces, medications, and possibly corrective surgery. Regular dental check-ups and maintaining good oral hygiene are crucial preventive measures. Early detection and treatment are crucial to prevent the development of the disease and evade severe complications.
