What are the parodentium and gum diseases
Nowadays more than 50% of people over 18 and almost 100% of middle-aged patients (over 40) suffer gum diseases (information of the World Health Organization). You ask why? The answer is simple. Most gum diseases appear without any evident symptoms.
There is a special branch of stomatology - parodontics. It deals with prevention and treatment of the diseases of parodentium tissues (gingivitis, periodontitis, and other oral mucosa diseases). The first reason of gum diseases is a deposit that remains on the teeth enamel every day. If you do not clean your teeth regularly it will soon lead to dental calculus and destruction of peridental tissues.as a result your teeth will come loose and eventually come out.
Microbes causing chronic inflammations of gum tissues can get into the general system of sanguimotion even in case of a slight gum bleeding.
It has been proven that most bacteria contained in the dental deposit dent the general tonus of the organism and even cause jelly clots. If such jelly clots get into the general system of blood supply and increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Gum diseases can provoke complications during pregnancy. Your teeth may look fine but it does not mean that you do not have parodentium diseases.
Only after a short examination your dentist or a hygienist can find out whether you have parodentium diseases or not. The examination consists in measuring the size of the gum recess using a probe. This method allows the dentist to make a conclusion as for the general state of gums and make a plan of treatment of the disease. The doctor will also offer you a plan of personal hygiene considering the state of your gums. The success of treatment depends on 2 factors - the control of the dentist and your precision in following the doctor's advice.
