Periodontal disease, periodontitis, paradentosis, or perhaps paradontosis — a dear child has many names. However, the condition remains the same and even a very common one. Periodontal disease is a bacteria related illness, which begins as inflamed gums — also known as gingivitis. If the inflammation is not treated in time, it can develop into periodontal disease.
Periodontal disease attacks the bone, which the teeth are attached to, causing it to slowly disappear. In the end that means lose teeth with eventually will fall out. To describe it more detailed: A healthy tooth is firmly rooted to the bone and the jaw with the help of a lot of small fibers called periodontal fibers. These fibers make sure that the tooth does not come in direct contact with the jawbone. Thus, a tooth is hanging from a kind of network of delicate threads called the periodontal membrane. When a tooth is attacked by periodontal disease, the bone tissue of the tooth is slowly decomposed, which causes the jawbone to disappear over time. The tooth then loses its attachment and will no longer be able to resist the daily load causing it to eventually fall out.
There are big individual differences as to the aggressiveness of the periodontal disease attacks and the level of disposal one has. In some circumstances the periodontal disease is related to the lack of proper oral hygiene, while the disease in other circumstances is a hereditary condition. Other get periodontal disease as a side effect to a general disease like diabetes. Especially smokers are disposed to develop periodontal disease, as you often see a correlation between a heavy use of tobacco and a significantly large deconstruction of bones. The people, who are in this high risk group, are thus less resistant towards the bacteria causing periodontal disease and should pay special attention to the symptoms.
Periodontal disease can be tricky to discover, as it is often not connected with any pain. Bad breath, bleeding gums and pus from the gum pockets may however be indicators of periodontal disease. The teeth will over time be more loose and have a tendency to wander causing your tooth position to change. When the bone slowly disappears, the gums will eventually withdraw itself further and further causing the roots and pendants to appear naked. This can cause sensitive teeth, which you can experience when eating or drinking something cold or hot.

If you are diagnosed with periodontal disease, or you are in the risk group of developing it, we at Dentin Clinic recommend, that you receive either preventive treatment or actual periodontal disease treatment every 3rd or 4th month.
