Treatment of periodontitis gums (laser technology, curettage)
Periodontitis is a tissue disease that holds the tooth in place. It is an inflammation of the gums and other dental organs (ligament and alveolar bone). Periodontitis is accompanied by bone loss which becomes the cause of a fall of the tooth. Bacteria are formed in the gums and then enter the bone. The bone that supports the tooth becomes infected and resorbs and the tooth begins to move. Sometimes you have to pull the tooth that has no decay or other problem but has lost the bone and no longer stands.
Gum disease is linked to poor hygiene of the mouth and teeth. Bacteria present in the mouth attach to the teeth, forming plaque and then calculus. It can be related to other diseases, heredity or the taking of certain drugs. Improper prosthesis or incorrect occlusion can also cause inflammation of the gums.
