Periodontitis is often the result of a prolonged, untreated periodontal condition similar to gingivitis -only that periodontitis has a more profound effect on the teeth, making them loose, thereby detaching from the socket at a very visible rate. Periodontitis is the inflammation of the periodontium: the tissues, periodontal ligament and alveolar bone that surround the teeth, which leads to the infectious and rather painless (at first) destruction of the periodontium. If left untreated for some time, the severity of the damage may result to medical complications such as: stroke, myocardial infection, atheroscelerosis, renal failure and larger complications for those who are suffering from diabetes or cancer.Do you want to learn more?

There are two types of periodontitis, chronic and aggressive.

Chronic periodontitis is attributed to rapid tooth loss on adults. Poor glycemic control or fluctuating sugar levels often trigger the early and unprecedented onset of periodontitis in adults. In turn, periodontitis worsens the glycemic control of the body, making it harder for a diabetic patient to recover from diabetes or to live a controlled lifestyle. Periodontitis can also be used to detect diabetes and cancer cell formation. A majority of people who have been treated of their periodontal disease are also subjected to clinical tests, making it easier to narrow down the patient’s medical condition.

Chronic Periodontitis is easier to treat and maintain than Aggressive Periodontitis. There are four systematic steps to disinfect and rehabilitate the damaged periodontium, namely:

1. Full mouth disinfection that uses scaling and root planning to an extent that all the accumulated plaque of the teeth and gum line are complete eradicated and the debridement of the periodontal pocket to prevent any spread of bacteria to healthy periodontium.

2.Open flap debridement is a more sophisticated and a more effective approach, whereby surgical intervention gives way to better clean deeper pocket areas where the periodontitis has spread.
