The Stages of Periodontal Disease are as follows: Periodontal disease is commonly referred to as gum disease. The word periodontal means around the tooth.
Periodontal disease is a series of chronic bacteria infections that harm the specific tissues and supporting bones surrounding the teeth. There are various phases of periodontal disease and the earlier we detect it the easier it is for us at Rungstedtand to treat.
Symptoms of periodontal disease
Symptoms – Healthy gingiva are pink in colour, fit snugly around tooth, don’t bleed easily, and are firm. Some signs of periodontal disease are red swollen gingiva that bleed easily, persistent halitosis, receding gum lines, changes in how tooth fit together, and tooth sensitivity.
The root cause of periodontal disease is improper care and cleaning of teeth. The use of tobacco products, hereditary factors, excessive stress, and poor diet are factors as well.
Periodontal Disease Stages
The first stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. Gingivitis only affects the gum surrounding the teeth. The bacteria will cause the gingiva to redden, become swollen, and also to bleed easily. Halitosis or a bad taste might or might not be present. In general, there’s no discomfort and for that reason, gingivitis tends to go untreated. At Rungstedtand Dental Clinic Hørsholm, Vedbæk, Birkerød and Kokkedal we believe that your teeth are important and we want to preserve your original teeth if optimal. So contact us for a consultation and we get back to you with the best solution for you as an individual.
Periodontal Disease Treatment
Nevertheless, if treated rapidly it may be reversible with professional care and proper dental hygiene. The 2nd stage is called aggressive periodontitis or pyorrhea. Chronic halitosis and bad taste are also associated with this stage of the disease. The 3rd stage of periodontal disease is chronic periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis is recognized by the considerable recession and / or the formation of deep sacs along the gum.
Individuals with systematic diseases like diabetes mellitus, leukemia, or HIV more commonly get necrotizing periodontal disease. This is the 4th stage of the disease. Lesions or pus pockets are common with this stage. Treatment – Several treatment options nonsurgical and surgical are available depending upon the severity of the disease. Nonsurgical procedures can be performed if the gingiva and tooth are healthful or can be repaired.
