What is Periodontics?

Periodontics is the treatment of disorders that affect the teeth’s supporting structures, particularly the gums and the tissues that surround them.

Gum disease is one of the most common disorders seen by periodontists. When bacteria in the mouth build a sticky film called plaque, it hardens and becomes calculus if not eliminated with appropriate oral hygiene.

Calculus buildup in the gums can cause inflammation and infection, resulting in symptoms such as redness, swelling, bleeding, and, eventually, loss of supporting tissues.

Types of diseases that periodontics treats

Tipos de enfermedades que trata la periodoncia

There are some types of diseases and conditions treated by periodontics. It is crucial to keep them in mind.

This is the first stage of periodontal disease. It begins with gums inflammation and is caused by the accumulation of bacterial plaque around the teeth and gums. When we do not deeply clean using a toothbrush and dental floss, food residues produce a series of toxins that irritate the gingival tissue. Gingivitis is treatable and can be reversed as long as the bone has not been affected. It is important to maintain proper oral hygiene, have a healthy diet, and avoid smoking.
Commonly known as pyorrhea, it begins with untreated gingivitis and eventually the alveolar bone is affected, leaving the tooth without bony support. The bone and fibers supporting the teeth suffer irreparable damage, forming pockets under the gums where bacterial plaque and food accumulate. Periodontitis with bad treatment destroys the tooth’s supporting structures, loosening them until these eventually fall out.
This is the final stage of the disease. The tissues and bone supporting the teeth are destroyed, leading to the loosening and loss of teeth

Treatment may involve a combination of surgical and non-surgical procedures, as well as ongoing maintenance.

For many patients, a deep cleaning will be enough to control the disease. However, in advanced cases of acute periodontitis, deep cleaning alone may not be sufficient treatment. That’s why a second phase of therapy may include gum surgery to access deep areas for cleaning.

The blue laser can enhance the treatment of periodontitis, the advanced stage of gum disease. The use of laser helps improve the prognosis of moderate or severe periodontitis.

That’s why we incorporate the D Laser Blue-Woodpecker Diode Laser into our procedures. This device is part of a new generation of high-powered dental diode lasers.

This technology plays a crucial role in sterilizing the area, acting as a preventive measure against potential future complications in the gums. In addition to its ability to eliminate bacteria in periodontal pockets, the laser also proves effective in removing plaque and tartar buildup along and below the gumline. With this procedure, the patient experiences no pain, providing a comfortable and effective treatment.

After the application of the laser on the damaged gum, there is an opportunity for regeneration, contributing to the improvement of the patient’s periodontal condition.”
