Periodontology is the science that is related with the surrounding and supporting buildings of the teeth such as cementum, periodontal tendon, alveolar bone and gingiva. Due to the shortage of oral hygiene, the inflammation of the gingiva is seen which is called ‘gingivitis’. In addition to the gingival irritation, when the bone resorption occurs, the disease is then called ‘periodontitis’. Presently there are different types of periodontitis such as serious periodontitis that is most commonly noticed in adults, hostile periodontitis, periodontitis as a manifestation of systemic diseases.¬†dental periodontics montreal

The primary etiological factor for the formation of the periodontal diseases is microbial dental plaque or in other words the bacteria within the biofilm. Besides that, the medication used for the systemic diseases and stress may be the secondary reasons behind the disease. Antidepressants used for the treatment of obsessive compulsive disease, stress and depression could cause the decrease in saliva stream which results with the xerostomia. Due to the lack of saliva, the removal of microbial biofilm gets difficult and gum diseases occur. So what is the role of a patient in this situation?

Most of the patients have no clue about the periodontal diseases. The reason for that may be the inadequate or fake information of the people by the dentists. The patients should first consider the necessity of the periodontal treatment as the success of the therapy will depend on 1 / 2 and half the patient.

In addition to the patient’s role, the dentist have the key responsibility for the cure. Following your app of the appropriate gum treatment, the patient should be educated about the proper dental hygiene such as how to extensively, floss and/or use the interdental brushes. At the end of the treatment, recall sessions begin in which the patient is seen in each and every 3, 4 or six months time. In each recognition session, the recurrence of the periodontal disease and the patient’s oral care is evaluated.

People should go to dental sessions not since it is a must for them. They should said in a routine, brush their teeth twice in a day and floss daily at least. The best times to do these procedures are the days after breakfast and the nights before going to bed. Otherwise, the end result will be the formation of the horadación and periodontal diseases.

Today, the prophylactic treatment techniques happen with the treatment in which the target is to prevent the progression of the break down. By that, patients who are under risk for the occurrence of gum disease are diagnosed and precautions are taken in advance. To have this point, dentists have the responsibility to inform the patients prior to the disease occurs. However, the patients are as responsible as the dentists to not have the disease by performing the oral hygiene procedures effectively.
