What is Periodontology

While gum diseases are very diverse, the problems they cause in the person are just as diverse. There are gum diseases of varying severity, ranging from mild inflammation to the deformation of the jawbone and its melting.

The aim of the treatment of gum diseases, which we call periodontology or more commonly used among the public, is to achieve healthy gums and to ensure that the gums become one with the teeth.

Although there are many symptoms of gum diseases, the most easily recognized and most common symptom is bleeding gums. Bleeding gums when brushing teeth or eating hard foods are the most important harbingers of gum diseases.

Even if there is no bleeding gums, gum diseases may be present and may not show any symptoms for a while. Therefore, it is important to have regular dental examinations.

Gum disease may have more than one symptom. Some of these symptoms are as follows;

  • Bad and severe bad breath
  • Gums that move away from the teeth and can separate
  • Wobbly teeth
  • Gum recession
  • Spontaneous gingival bleeding during tooth brushing
  • Inflammation of the gums

All gum diseases are problems that must be treated, which can lead to deterioration and inflammation in the jaw structure if left untreated. The treatment process of gum diseases, which is a very comfortable treatment, varies according to the techniques and methods to be used within the scope of the problem experienced by the patient.

It is important to perform daily oral care to prevent gum disorders. However, regular scaling is also important for a proper rooting process. In the treatment of gum diseases, the process of the gums adapting to the teeth should be managed well.

Treatment of periodontal diseases may sometimes require surgical intervention.
