gum diseases

In cases where personal hygiene practices such as tooth brushing and interdental cleaning are not performed or are not carried out effectively, bacterial plaque accumulation and tartar formations occur on the tooth surfaces, gingival margins and in the gingival pocket. If the inflammation caused by these structures is limited to the gingiva, it is called gingivitis, and if it affects the bone tissue surrounding and supporting the tooth, it is called periodontitis. Gum diseases (periodontal disease) is an infectious disease that affects the tissues surrounding and supporting the tooth, not the tooth. Even teeth that have no caries can be lost due to this disease. Periodontal diseases can affect one or more teeth; It is the most common chronic disease in the society that can be seen in children, adolescents, adults and the elderly. Since it is usually painless, the symptoms are hardly noticed by the patient and in most cases, a late referral to the physician is made. Supporting tissues around the teeth; gingiva, tooth root, jaw

Tooth loss is not the only tooth lost.

It is known that the physical forces transmitted to the teeth by chewing have the effect of stimulating the presence of the jawbone and creating cell regeneration. The jawbones that support the teeth can be adversely affected if the teeth are pulled out, and since the physical forces directly transmitted to the bone are eliminated, melting can be seen in the jawbones. In natural bone formation and destruction physiology, the upper jaw bones melt from front to back and the lower jaw melts from back to front. This situation, in which people's lower jaw moves forward due to aging, is observed much more clearly especially in people with tooth deficiency.

Which implant?

With the widespread use of dental implant treatment, the presence of too many implant brands on the market and the spread of counterfeit ancillary implant products, unfortunately, is a development we see with regret. These products, which are obtained as a result of the production of the implant itself or the spacers used for prosthesis production by imitating it with low quality outside the original company, are put on the market by circles that do not have ethical concerns and are profit-oriented, and pose a danger to the oral and dental health of the patients. It is inevitable that such parts, which are applied without going through any quality control process, will damage the applied dental implant, jawbone and soft tissues. Problems such as loosening, fractures or bacterial growth in the space in between may occur as a result of the part that is attached to the implant, which we call the abutment, on which the coating sits, is not fully seated on the implant. inside the jawbone

Gingivitis can dissolve the jaw bones.

If gingivitis is not treated, it can adversely affect the jaw bones and lead to bone resorption and tooth loss. It is possible to prevent gum diseases with good oral care and regular tooth brushing habits. Bacterial plaque that accumulates on our teeth after meals, when not removed with a toothbrush, can turn into dental calculus along with the minerals in the saliva. This situation; It can lead to gingivitis, bad breath, bleeding gums, and loss of teeth and jawbones in the future. In the treatment of jaw bone resorption, it is possible to correct the deficiencies with bone grafts, also known as bone powder, which are bone-forming artificial materials.
