Periodontal treatment is a dental procedure that aims to remove tartar, calculus or tartar from the surfaces of the teeth and prevent periodontal diseases. In this article, we explain everything you need to know about periodontal treatment and its different procedures.

What is periodontal treatment?

Periodontal treatment is a set of dental procedures performed to treat periodontal diseases, such as gingivitis and periodontitis. These diseases are caused by the accumulation of bacterial plaque and tartar on the teeth and gums, which can lead to inflammation, bleeding and pain in the gums, as well as bone and tooth loss.

Periodontal treatment consists of several dental cleaning appointments, known as scaling, to remove tartar and calculus from the surfaces of the teeth. If the tartar is below the gum, a subgingival cleaning under local anesthesia is required, known as curettage.

When is periodontal treatment needed?

When significant bone loss is observed in the x-rays, the teeth show mobility, root exposure and gum loss, a periodontist is referred to make a general assessment and give the ideal treatment to keep the teeth longer in the mouth.

It is important to visit the dentist regularly to detect any dental health problems in their early stages and prevent periodontal diseases. Gingivitis is the initial stage of periodontal disease and is characterized by inflammation of the gums and bleeding when brushing the teeth. If caught early enough, it can be reversed with good dental hygiene and regular dental cleanings.

La periodontitis es una etapa más avanzada de la enfermedad periodontal y puede causar la pérdida de hueso y dientes. En este caso, es necesario un tratamiento periodontal específico para detener la progresión de la enfermedad y conservar los dientes por más tiempo en boca.

En conclusión, el tratamiento periodontal es un procedimiento dental importante para prevenir y tratar enfermedades periodontales. Es recomendable visitar al dentista regularmente para detectar cualquier problema de salud dental en sus etapas tempranas y recibir el tratamiento adecuado. Si tienes alguna preocupación sobre tu salud dental, no dudes en hablar con tu dentista o periodoncista para recibir la mejor atención y cuidado dental posible.
