These periodic prophylaxis sessions prevent:
- installing gum disease caused by bacterial plaque
- creating colonies of bacteria existing in dental plaque combined with carbohydrates derived from starch thus forming an acid that attacks tooth enamel and causes cavities
- transformation of bacterial plaque into a deposit adheres to teeth called plaque
As gingivitis does not cause pain as a symptoms, most patients do not address the treatment of these diseases at an early stage, leaving room for the emergence of periodontics. Evolution of periodontal disease can go unnoticed for months or even years.
Together with an effective oral hygiene and proper food diet, one of the most effective prophylactic methods to combat these diseases is having prevention sessions every 6 months.
How to treat and how do we prevent periodontal disease?
- removes tartar deposits on the surface of the teeth and subgingival
- reduce congestion rough calculus favoring accumulation and proliferation of bacteria
- done at a regular interval of time, this procedure reduces and even eliminates the risk of gum disease (recommendation is that the procedure is performed at an interval of maximum 6 months).
- altered cementum removes, cleans deep root surfaces
- removes deposits of sub-gingival
- is performed under local anesthesia, using ultrasonic instruments or curette
- For moderate periodontitis, this method can even stabilize affection
- requires extremely rigorous cleaning of periodontal pockets
- involves the administration of local anesthesia, thus will remove any discomfort arising during the procedure;
- incision, gum is set aside to allow surfacing through direct access to the affected area and optimize visibility on it.
- A root surfacing performed efficiently by a specialist, can reduce the number of surgeries required.
