Any oral disease can become a serious problem if not noticed and treated in its initial stages. Such diseases are not only painful but also can have serious consequences if not treated properly. The periodontium is the most delicate and vulnerable part of the mouth. It is extremely easy to damage, and there are many ways for infection to get to it. Therefore, it is very important to know the ways and stages of periodontal disease treatment to avoid problems with your teeth and not only in the future.
What Is a Periodontium?
To find an effective treatment, you need to understand exactly what you will be treating. The periodontium is the part of the tissue that surrounds the tooth and helps hold it in the place where the root of the tooth is attached. Unlike the main gum tissue, the periodontium is filled with blood vessels and nerves, making it the most delicate and sensitive part of the tooth structure. This is due to the important function assigned to the periodontium - to saturate the surrounding tissues with nutrients and oxygen.
Why Is It Important to Respond Quickly to the Symptoms of Periodontal Disease?
As important as the function of the periodontium is, as dangerous is the periodontal disease. Most effectively, the infection travels with the blood within the body. And since the periodontium consists almost entirely of blood vessels, which easily allow nutrients to pass through, it is not difficult for the infection to enter the circulatory system. Through the blood vessels, the infection can travel to nearby parts of the body: the throat and lungs at best. Worse, if the infection goes upward and reaches your ears or even the brain.
How to Treat Periodontal Disease
From the above, we can conclude that it's not the periodontal disease itself that's the problem, but its consequences. You can't completely cure the infection yourself, so it's best to see a doctor. He can do these steps of treatment:
Tartar removal, dental hygiene cleaning, and dental caries treatment
Correction of bite and regeneration of damaged gum tissue and jaw bones
Regular prevention of recurrence of infection through cleanings and timely treatment of other oral conditions
The complexity and depth of interventions will depend on the condition of the periodontium and surrounding tissues. Therefore, the earlier you pay attention to your bothering symptoms, the easier and faster the treatment will go. But the best option is still regular preventive care and hygienic checkups with your dentist.
