periodoncia-dental-medellinPeridontics is the specialty that studies the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases and conditions that affect the tissues that support the teeth or structures and substitutes what was implanted to ensure the health of the patient as well as proper function and aesthetics for the teeth and tissue.

The gums play an important role in dental aesthetics and in some cases greatly improves the design of a great smile. For smile design, Dental Home uses an electrosurgery, which allows specialists to create an outline (like plastic surgery) to improve gums appearance and make a smile more beautiful.

Periodontitis is one of the most common oral diseases and a major cause of tooth loss. This occurs by the formation of deposits of dental plaque between teeth and gums, causing inflammation that causes the gums to gradually separate from the teeth. Meanwhile, erosion caused by infection in the bone where the tooth sits can cause the tooth to become loose and will end up falling out. This does not hurt and the client may not notice unless it is seen by a dentist, but at this point it may be too late and difficult to salvage the damage. It is always advisable to consult a dentist when a client notices swelling, bleeding, or tenderness in the gums. Thanks to periodontics, clients can maintain healthy gums and other tissues in the mouth.


When should I see a Peridontist?

Some clients report that bleeding of gums when brushing teeth and classify this as “normal”. The reality is that if you notice: gums are red in color, puss between teeth and gums, frequent bad breath, bleeding gums, unexplained reasons for teeth moving apart from each other, teeth are loose or fall out; ALL of these can be symptoms of some form of periodontal disease and need to visit a peridontist at Dental Home for an evaluation and the best treatment for this situation.
