Periodontitis: an infection to avoid! How much do you know about it?

periodontitis, plaque and tartar

Periodontitis or pyorrhea is an infection which, if neglected, causes irreversible damage. Bacteria, during meals, can attach to our teeth as a result the only more appropriate choice is to brush our teeth immediately after meals, in order to avoid any gum inflammation.

How many variations does periodontitis have?

How this infection progresses and manifests itself can vary from case to case. We list three variants:

  • Chronic pyorrhoea: it does not immediately show itself as an obvious problem. This is because it was initially born as gingivitis, slowly breaking down the immune system. There is a slow loss of tissue, an event that can be misleading because it is associated with the presence of tartar.
  • Aggressive Pyorrhea: This can be seen by seeing a rapid loss of gum tissue. There is a difference between aggressive and conical pyorrhea: aggressive pyorrhea focuses mainly on the molars and incisors.
  • Ulcer-necrotic pyorrhoea: usually occurs in young people located in developing countries. There is clear and evident gum bleeding, sometimes without any rubbing. It occurs when there is the presence of diseases such as leukemia, measles, chicken pox and tuberculosis or due to factors such as smoking, stress and poor oral hygiene.

Possible causes and remedies

Few people are able to associate these causes with pyorrhea, consequently we tend to neglect it. Neglecting this infection, in fact, leads to tooth loss. Only 8% of Italians know that the term periodontitis is synonymous with pyorrhea, a more common and known term especially in the past.

You can recognize it by the obvious bleeding from the gums. Symptoms that may occur are:

  • Bad smelling breath better known as halitosis
  • Dental mobility
  • Noticeable spaces between the teeth
  • Gum recession
periodontitis, plaque and tartar

90% of Italians know they are not sufficiently informed and would like to increase their knowledge on gum health, 95% require dentists to play a crucial role in the dissemination of clear and correct news, 83% would like to receive information from sites trusted web.

If, on the one hand, there is little knowledge of the disease and the risks associated with it, on the other, retracting and bleeding gums should frighten and push the interested party to book an appointment at a dental office.
