Chronic periodontitis is a common infection of the oral cavity involving enduring inflammation of the periodontal soft tissue that is produced by accumulation of generous quantities of dental plaque. Periodontitis usually starts as a gingivitis and, if it is not treated, it will advance to a chronic disorder. Our dentists in Dubai can offer specialized help and proper treatment plans for every patient who suffers from chronic periodontitis.
Symptoms of a chronic periodontitis
In the early phases, chronic periodontitis has only few signs and, in many patients, the illness has advanced considerably before they seek for a dentist and a precise treatment. Signs of a chronic periodontitis may contain the following:
• profound pockets between the teeth and the gums;
• bleeding gums when brushing teeth or when using dental floss;
• bad breath and an insistent metallic taste in the mouth;
• loose of teeth in the later phases;
• gum swelling that persists;
• gingival depression, resulting in ostensible expansion of teeth.
Patients occasionally accept that painless bleeding after teeth washing is irrelevant, although this may be a symptom of continuing chronic periodontitis. For this reason, our dentists in Dubai recommend to their patients periodic dental visits in order to solve any gum problems that might arise.
Proper treatment for chronic periodontitis
First of all, the dentists in Dubai remind to their patients that a good oral hygiene and smoking interruption are significant to effective treatment and have positive results. The representative preliminary treatment known to be operative is scaling and root planing to mechanically debride the rock bottom of the periodontal pocket. This can be done using a sonic scaler, a powered ultrasonic or hand instruments. Subgingival debridement is an operative treatment in decreasing penetrating pocket depth and improving the clinical addition level.
Full mouth disinfection is a recommended procedure of our dentists in Dubai for patients with chronic periodontitis in reasonably deep pockets. Open flap debridement is used by our dentists in Dubai mostly in deeper pocket zones. The benefit of this method is better visualising of the root surface to be washed. Guided tissue regeneration has a big effect on probing procedures of periodontal health than surgical removal tissue, including developed attachment, decreased pocket depth, less growth in gingival stagnation.
Periodontal surgery may be required in certain circumstances and the dentist can also recommend an antimicrobial cure. As a reminder, you can also receive dental implants in Dubai. It is good to kow that our dental clinics in Dubai are properly equipped with high-class technology.
