Periodontics and dental hygiene in Javea
Periodontal problems and periodontal disease are bacterial infections that damage or destroy the tissues that surround or support the teeth (periodontium). This mainly effects the gums and bone levels.
In order to maintain healthy teeth, it is important to ensure impeccable hygiene to maintain healthy gums and avoid deposits of tartar.
If left untreated, inflammation can seriously damage the teeth and gums. This is why it is important to attend regular check up and hygiene appointments in order to prevent the development of periodontal disease and to preserve oral health as much as possible.
One can easily detect periodontal disease or periodontitis by gum bleeding, retraction of gums as well as bone loss.
The main trigger of these diseases are dental plaque and tartar.
The treatment phases of periodontal disease
Periodontal disease can be easily controlled but it is important to follow the instructions given by your dentist.
- Scaling or Root Planing (deep cleaning under the gums)
- 3 monthly dental hygiene appointments
