TOOTH STRUCTURE

1. Tooth enamel is firm mineral tissue which covers the dentine in the area of the anatomical crown.

2. Dentine or dental bone is firm tissue which makes up the largest part of the tooth.

3. Pulp
is the living part of the tooth, i.e. the mixture of nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue.

4. Gingiva
is the soft tissue which covers the bone and protects the supporting structures from influx of bacteria.

5. The alveolar bone
is one of the main “holders” of teeth.

6. Root canal
is the area from the bottom of the pulp chamber to the top of the root.

7. Periodontal ligament
connects the root with the alveolar bone.

8. Cementum is the mineralized connective tissue which covers the dentine in root area.

PERIODONTAL DISEASES

Periodontal diseases are inflammatory states which cause the decay of the tissue which supports the teethi.e. gums, bones and periodontal ligament (connects the teeth with the bone).

Inflammatory changes of gums (gingiva) is called gingivitis, and if such an inflammationaffects deeper structures, we are dealing with periodontitis.

The cause of these diseases is primarily poor hygiene of the oral cavity, that is, accumulation of the bacteria (plaque), followed by dental tartar, residual food and poor prosthetic replacements. Periodontitis is a hereditary disease.

Periodontal diseases can occur as a result of some systemic diseases (diabetes, leukaemia, AIDS etc.) or as a result of some other bad habits such as smoking.

GINGIVITIS

The first symptoms of gingivitis (gingiva inflammation) are redness and bleeding in cases when the gingiva (gums) gets slightly red and starts bleeding. It all starts with the accumulation of dental plaque (bacterial deposits) around the tooth neck, but it can also happen as a result of neglected oral hygiene. The plaque later mineralizes (hardens), which creates tartar, which cannot be cleaned so easily.

PERIODONTAL POCKET

If the gingival inflammation lasts, the gingiva will slowly start to detach from the tooth, thus forming the so-called periodontal pocket. Once this pocket develops, it takes a lot of effort to fix it.

PERIODONTITIS (PARODONTITIS)

Periodontitis is an infection which affects the bone which supports the teeth, which can result in tooth loss. Periodontitis is caused by millions of bacteria which live in our mouth. The stats show that 30% to 40% people have this disease. Periodontitis is one of the most common causes of tooth loss among adults.

Unfortunately, periodontitis is a vicious disease, which often comes with mild symptoms, which is why most people don’t even know they have it until it is too late.

TOOTH LOOSENESS

As this disease advances, periodontal ligament and support bone start to decay. This becomes a more serious situation which can result in tooth looseness.

Apart from poor oral hygiene, genetic component also plays a major role with periodontal diseases.

In order to prevent this situation, it is necessary to react in time and ask for help from a specialist periodontist!
