The only real cure for periodontal disease is to remove all your teeth and replace them with a full set of teeth supported by implants. When periodontal disease is diagnosed, it cannot be reversed with medications or nonsurgical treatments. Modern treatments for the disease are often related to prevention and management, rather than cure. The only way to completely get rid of periodontal disease is to remove the infection at its source by removing the teeth.
The bacteria cannot live, so periodontal disease leaves the body. The teeth will then be replaced with a full set of teeth supported by implants. Unfortunately, periodontal disease can result in the loss of a tooth. Fortunately, modern dentistry includes dental implants, which will allow you to completely replace those teeth, from the root up.
We recommend that you talk to us about implants and beautiful crowns if you're ready to restore your smile, so you can achieve the closest replication by comparing the prosthesis to your natural teeth. Dental implants also prevent the loss of more teeth. Periodontitis is a type of gum disease. It can happen if a person doesn't follow normal hygiene practices, such as brushing their teeth and flossing daily.
In the early stages, it is reversible. However, as you progress, irreversible damage can occur. Often, a person doesn't realize that this damage is present until it's too late to completely fix it. As mentioned earlier, seeking treatment for gum disease in its earliest stages is best because it's a reversible condition.
All a qualified dentist needs is professional cleaning, plus proper home care to eliminate the oral problem. Lasers have revolutionized multiple industries and oral care is no exception. While periodontal laser therapy is still in its infancy, it shows promising results for eligible patients. There are some apparent benefits of this new therapy.
They include the ability of the laser to attack the disease with precision, of a less invasive nature and a shorter recovery time. There isn't enough evidence to show that laser therapy is better than other forms of gum disease therapy. It would be helpful to talk to your dentist about all of the available therapy options. It's always best to exercise caution when making dental decisions.
Periodontal disease can be treated, but technically it can't be “cured.” Even after a dentist helps you get rid of periodontal disease, there is a chance that it will come back if you don't practice good oral hygiene. Periodontitis (or periodontal disease) is an advanced form of gingivitis that requires more rigorous treatment than gingivitis. In addition to implementing healthy lifestyle habits, such as reducing sugar consumption and activating a complete daily oral hygiene routine, the dentist will recommend closely monitoring your periodontal health with more frequent oral care appointments and checkups.
