Periodontics in Curitiba

Periodontics is the specialty of dentistry that deals with the supporting structures of teeth (periodontium). Nowadays, we take into account that the smile aesthetic is the harmony between the teeth and the gums, therefore, a healthy gum is fundamental for the success of an aesthetic treatment.

The gum is the tissue that lines the bone that supports the teeth (alveolar bone) and, due to poor hygiene, smoking, stress, low immunity and poor eating habits, the gums become weak, causing gingivitis. Periodontics investigates the main characteristic signs of gingivitis such as bleeding, edema (swelling), redness and pain. If it is continuously inflamed, the gums facilitate the passage of bacteria into the bloodstream and, once circulating in the body, they can cause chronic inflammations with the risk of lodging in the heart causing serious problems (bacterial endocarditis). Periodontal diseases affect 75% of the population over 25 years of age, so it is of great importance to make constant visits to your dentist for prevention. If any changes in the gums are found, the dentist should refer the patient to a professional specializing in periodontics.

Correct hygiene is essential, the accumulation of bacterial plaque leads to the formation of tartar or calculus that, over time, gets lodged below the visible line of the teeth – between the tooth and the gum. If this accumulation is not removed by the periodontist, it can evolve by creating a periodontal pocket (periodontitis) that slowly causes retraction of the bone that supports the teeth, causing bad breath (halitosis), softening or even the loss of teeth. This disease can be asymptomatic, that is, the patient may not feel pain or discomfort and not necessarily have bleeding or gingival retraction.

1.1 – Gum Retraction

Have you ever heard of “retracted gum”?

The retracted gum occurs when the gingival tissue retracts, causing the root of the teeth to be exposed, bringing consequences to the entire oral region.
This process leaves the sensitive area, and causes the tooth to lose the healthy tissue around it.

The treatment of gingival retraction,
when well indicated,
has excellent results.
