Periodontitis Treatment

 

Richter’s Dental Clinic in Tbilisi offers comprehensive treatment for gum diseases at any stage of periodontitis development. However, early intervention is crucial as it protects against further complications and expedites treatment.

Gum disease is initially asymptomatic, with unpleasant and often painful symptoms manifesting over time.

What Causes Periodontitis?

  • Lack of oral hygiene
  • Tobacco consumption
  • Genetics
  • Improper nutrition
  • Somatic diseases (e.g., C-hepatitis, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes)
  • Hormonal changes
  • Various medications
  • Age
  • Stress
  • Incorrect dentition

Recognising the Need for Periodontitis Treatment:

While periodontitis is asymptomatic in its early stages, regular consultations with a dentist facilitate early diagnosis. If asymptomatic gum disease goes unnoticed and complications such as bleeding gums, gum pain, swelling, gum spacing, hyperemia, teeth grinding, shifting, bad breath, pain, or discomfort arise, immediate dental consultation is essential.

Treatment Approaches

Conservative treatment is applied during the early stages of gum disease. It involves dental plaque removal through procedures like scaling, root canal treatment, and antibiotic use to prevent bacterial infection.

Complex cases featuring symptoms like deep periodontal pockets, traumatic tongue and lip folds, gum recessions, and aesthetic concerns may require laser therapy or surgical intervention.

Importance of Post-Procedure Oral Care

Post-treatment, meticulous adherence to the dentist’s specific recommendations and strict hygiene norms is essential. Gingivitis, often preceding periodontitis, can be halted through proper brushing, flossing, and oral care at home.

Regular Consultations for Preventive Care

Frequent consultations with Richters’ dentists significantly enhance early disease detection, ensuring a painless and minimally discomforting treatment experience.
