What is Periodontal Disease?

Periodontal disease is an infection of the gums and sometimes the bone that holds the teeth. The early stage of the disease begins with gum disease—inflammation of the gums (gingivitis) around the teeth. It is caused by bacteria that congregate in the build-up of plaque which forms tartar—particularly around the bottom of the teeth around the gum line. At this point, there are few symptoms in the way of discomfort or pain, but a tell-tale sign is bleeding around the gums when you brush your teeth.
If the disease is not treated in the early stages, it will progress to periodontitis. The gum tissue begins to shrink, pulling away from the teeth and forming pockets that harbor bacteria. As the gums recede further, you may experience pain or discomfort. The connective tissue and bone that support the teeth deteriorate as advanced periodontal disease takes hold, resulting in bad breath, pain, or discomfort while chewing food and ultimately, tooth loss.


Periodontal Treatments

The good news is that periodontal disease can be treated with preventive measures, including a twice-daily brushing and flossing routine, which keeps the mouth free of bacteria. Treatments offered by Herzliya Dental Clinic for periodontics disease include:


Scaling and Root Planning

Scaling and root planning is the name given to professional teeth cleaning. It is one of the commonest treatments in periodontics, typically carried out by a dental hygienist. Scaling removes tartar and plaque from the teeth above and below the gum line and deep within the pockets. The same process is carried out on the tooth roots with root planning, which creates a smooth surface to encourage the gums to reattach to your teeth.


Tooth Extraction

We will always do our best to preserve your natural teeth, but if a tooth has extensive damage, or is very loose, the only option is to remove it. A general dentist usually performs a tooth extraction, but if the extraction is complex the services of an oral surgeon may be required. Once the tooth is removed, we can discuss suitable tooth replacement options with you.


Ridge/Socket Preservation

When a tooth is lost, the bone surrounding the tooth socket begins to collapse. This causes a loss of height and width in the bone, making it difficult to place some tooth restorations, such as dental implants. It also results in noticeable changes to the face around the mouth and cheeks as the teeth and jawbone provide underlying support for the soft facial tissues. Ridge/socket preservation includes bone-grafting techniques to maintain the health of the alveolar ridge (the part of the jawbone where the teeth sit) and prevent bone loss.
