Do I have gum disease?

 

Periodontitis / pyorrhea is a disease that causes inflammation and infection of the ligaments and bones that support the tooth, and is one of the most common chronic diseases in the adult population. Periodontal disease affects approximately 80% of the population over 65 years of age. It is the most common cause of tooth loss in people over the age of 35.

Regular dentist appointments are key to early diagnosis and detection

Although we cannot regenerate lost bone around a dental piece, we can stop bone loss. In this way, the teeth will remain in the mouth as long as possible.

 

One of the most common complications found when replacing dental parts with implants is the presence of periodontitis in the active phase. Placing an implant in this environment can lead to contamination of the implant, leading to an undesirable process called peri-implantitis. Peri-implantitis causes bone loss around the implant due to infection of the surrounding tissue.

This may mean that the implant needs to be removed. In some cases, you may benefit from treatment that involves bone regeneration techniques that are not always predictable. We will talk later in which cases it can be regenerated and in which cases it is not possible.

 

This highlights the need for regular follow-up visits to detect any signs of periodontal disease in time. Control usually consists of an inspection and palpation of the gum around the implant. X-rays should also be done periodically, once a year. In some cases, a peri-implant survey will be performed to measure the degree of peri-implant involvement. In some cases, too, the prostheses supported by the implants can be lifted for deep cleaning. When considering a dental implant, consider that the price should reflect the professional’s fees for performing these implant control and maintenance tasks.

In our dental clinic in Malaga we have dentists specializing in the treatment of inflamed gums.
