Say Goodbye to Sensitive Gums with Innovative Solutions from American Dental

A timely consultation with your periodontics can save your smile and save you a lot of tears. Periodontitis is known as Sensitive gums disease.

American Dental offers different alternatives to prevent, treat, and solve this disease that is becoming more frequent.

Periodontitis in simple words is caused by a strong infection that can in a short time make you irreparably lose teeth. Unlike other diseases, this infection does not act on the teeth but, does so directly on the bone. Periodontitis causes the bone to be destroyed causing the teeth to loosen or detach, causing irreversible damage in patients.

Periodontitis, in simple terms, is characterized by a potent infection that, if left untreated, can swiftly lead to irreparable tooth loss. Unlike other dental diseases that primarily affect the teeth, periodontitis directly targets the supporting bone structure. This infection has the potential to cause significant destruction to the bone, resulting in the loosening or detachment of teeth and inflicting irreversible damage on affected individuals.

Do you have any of these risk factors?

Risk factors are used to find out if a patient is more likely to develop a disease. The more items you add, the more likely you are to suffer from this disease.

Risk factors

  1. 1. Poor oral health habits
  2. 2. Smoke
  3. 3. Genetics
  4. 4. Medications that affect oral health
  5. 5. Vitamin C deficiency
  6. 6. Hormonal changes
  7. 7. Gingivitis
  8. 8. HIV/AIDS
  9. 9. Diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and Crohn’s disease

It is important to clarify that each patient is completely different, as is their oral-dental health. For this reason, if you have one or more risk factors, it does not necessarily mean you will develop this disease.

Periodontics Process

As in any disease there are actions that can be taken to prevent it, however, if it is already advanced, a quik intervention of the specialist in Periodontics will ensure a better prognosis for the patient.

Periodontics – Preventive

Our patients receive a diagnosis based on their medical history, oral examination, depth measurements, and dental x-rays among other tests as required by the patient.

  • Medical history review: In this initial phase of the process, we seek to know the patient in depth to rule out possible internal or external causes that could cause this disease.
  • Oral examination: With this deep exploration, the specialist of Periodontics generates an early diagnosis to take measures in the short, medium, and long term. This scan looks for signs of bleeding, plaque, and tartar buildups, among others.
  • Depth measurements: These are not painful for the patient. They are performed with great care, avoiding causing discomfort in the patient. They consist of grafting a metal sterilized device to measure the gum bag of the teeth.

The healthy depths of dental pockets range from 1 to 3 millimeters. If there are depths more than 4 mm, it is better to do more dental medical examinations to determine periodontitis.
