Periodontal services are provided when a patient is displaying signs of periodontitis, also known as gum disease. This is a serious oral health condition that occurs when the gums become irritated due to extended exposure to bacteria, tartar and plaque.
Gum disease is extremely common. The most important thing when dealing with periodontitis is to stop to the condition early so that it does not spread to the jawbone and cause even more serious issues.
When a person is suffering from periodontitis, we can determine how far the condition has spread by measuring the depths of the periodontal pockets. These are spaces that form when the irritated gums begin to retract and pull away from the teeth. The periodontal pockets provide an ideal environment for additional bacteria to manifest. If these areas become infected, the condition can spread throughout the mouth more easily. The key is to stop the condition before this happens.
