Paradontic diseases are most often chronic inflammatory conditions including gingivitis, bone inflammation, and periodontal infection. Bacterial plaque is considered the most important local inflammatory factor. Most cases cause gingivitis and the exacerbation of existing and chronic inflammatory conditions in paradontal tissues. The plaque is formed on all the surfaces of the teeth, on the gums and on the prostheses existing in the oral cavity. Plaque in time mineralizes, creating the tartar.
There are interactions between periodontal disease and systemic illnesses. Paradontic illnesses negatively affect systemic illnesses and vice versa, diseases such as diabetes or leukemia complicate the course of periodontal disease. If the plaque is not regularly removed while maintaining proper hygiene and professional cleaning, the result may be inflammation of the gums. The gums become reddened, slightly swollen and easily bleed. This is an early stage of periodontal disease – Gingivitis
Smokers, watch out: Nicotine narrows blood veins, reduces cause bleeding and makes difficult to quickly locate paradontal disease!
This disease can be treated with professional cleansing procedures while maintaining oral hygiene.
In many cases gingivitis is not seen as a condition that causes discomfort. Gingival bleeding is seen by many people as a normal thing and does not require a visit to the dentist.
Note: healthy gums never bleed!
