This dental disease affects your gums and later on, spreads even into their supporting bone. It can easily bring your entire life to misery with constant bleeding, annoying everlasting pain, and even the receding gum line torture. Unfortunately, if left neglected, the disease can swiftly lead not only to the teeth loss, but also bone tissue destruction.
The main causes of the periodontal disease include the dental plaque buildup (which provides the perfect breeding environment for the gum disease triggering bacteria), sharp hormonal profile changes, and also a number of underlying dental and general health disorders related to the lowered oral cavity protection barriers.
The disease starts with its minor gingivitis stage, which causes the affected gum line to get swollen and occasionally bleed. If no easy-to-follow early periodontal disease treatment has been applied, the teeth get loose, one by one, and eventually fall out on the advanced periodontitis stage. The additional gum disease symptoms get vividly displayed on our today's animated video. It also allows you to see the difference between the mild gingivitis, moderate periodontal disease, and periodontitis using the photos as the illustrations. But remember that the early gingivitis oftentimes remains absolutely asymptomic.
Later on, the video explains how exactly the X-rays get evaluated and probes are taken to diagnose both common and asymptotic forms of the disease. This information will help your dental care provider to develop your individual specialists assisted periodontal disease treatment and / or at home care plan.
