How long can gingivitis last?
Gingivitis without complications can be cured in 10 days. In case you have a chronic form intensive cure will be needed. If one does not cure gingivitis he may later have a complication - periodontitis. Dedention is also possible. Dedention as the result of gingivitis is more frequent than that as the result of caries.
Take care of your gums as well as you take care of your teeth. Remember that healthy gums mean healthy teeth. If you feel pain in the gums you should see a dentist to find out the true cause of the disease.
Periodontitis and parodontosis in the nowadays world.
Are they dangerous?
Even in the ancient times the master would check the teeth of his slave because healthy teeth mean healthy organism. The main reason of all dental diseases is insufficient blood supply to the dental tissues (dental ligaments, gums, alveolar bones and so on). Almost any disease can cause insufficient blood supply to the dental tissues because everything that happens with our organism influences the condition of our teeth and vessels.
Parodontosis: what does this incomprehensible word mean?
Most people know that arteries provide our organism with nutrients and oxygen while blood vessels remove waste products of the cells. This is the way every tooth lives. Naturally there are no arteries or blood vessels in teeth. Arterioles and venules perform these functions in teeth. Numerous factors can cause hypotension in the arteriole and eventually lead to lack of arterial blood in the gum. This can happen because of sclerotic changes on the vascular walls.
It turns out that parodentium tissues are hungry and get not enough nutrients. This is the way parodontosis appears. It is caused by dystrophic changes in the dental tissues. The gum starts to grow pale and eventually dental tissues are completely replaced by a cartilage that does not need many nutrients. It may happen so that the size of the vessels decreases to the extent that the nutrients are not enough even for a cartilage. After that accumulation of salts begins. The crunch becomes audible. In most cases people who have parodontosis do not have caries. With these people dedention has another cause. Tooth support is being thinned and the tooth simply falls out. On its own account parodontosis is a rare disease (only 6% of people suffer parodontosis). More frequently parodontosis co-exists with another disease - periodontitis.
