symptoms of periodontitis

  • Perceptible tooth mobility;
  • Constant smell of rot from the mouth;
  • Feeling of a “grown” tooth;
  • Swelling in the lips and cheeks;
  • Noticeable swelling and redness of the gums;
  • Sharp pain when pressing on the tooth;
  • The appearance of a fistula of the gums.


Acute periodontitis

It is characterized by a deterioration in the general condition and severe pain. Soft tissues did not have time to undergo persistent changes. There are two forms:

  • serous
  • purulent

Chronic periodontitis

It comes after acute and proceeds without obvious symptoms. Gradual destruction of the structure of bone tissue. There are 3 types:

  • fibrous
  • granular
  • granulomatous

Diagnosis of periodontitis

Acute periodontitis is easily diagnosed, as the patient experiences acute incessant pain and it is enough for the doctor to:

  • examination of the oral cavity;
  • palpation of edematous gum tissue;
  • sounding.

Chronic periodontitis is often asymptomatic. In addition to the clinical examination, the following is required:

  1. X-ray – a snapshot of the jaw allows you to see the presence of lesions of the oral mucosa with granulomas or cysts.
  2. Computed tomography – helps to accurately determine the localization of a cyst or granuloma, as well as its size.
    The doctor makes the final diagnosis taking into account the patient’s complaints, the initial examination of the oral cavity and the X-ray image.

Methods for the treatment of periodontitis

  • Number of visits: from 1 to 3.
  • Procedure time: up to 1.5 hours.
  • Age restrictions: none.
  • Duration of treatment: from 1 to 4 weeks.
  • Anesthesia: local.

Conservative canal treatment for periodontitis involves up to 3 visits to the clinic. Treatment of periodontitis Wuppertal

In advanced cases, when endodontic manipulations do not give a result, surgical treatment is indispensable.

Effective dental procedures include:

  • cystomy – complete removal of the neoplasm;
  • cystectomy – excision of the anterior colon of the cyst with subsequent connection, parts with the oral cavity are removed;
  • resection of the apex of the tooth root – the elimination of the focus of infection in the tooth root.

If it is impossible to save the tooth, the tooth is extracted and after the procedures for increasing the bone tissue, implantation or prosthetics are carried out.

Complications in periodontitis

Without timely treatment, the infection spreads to neighboring tissues and causes:

  • Phlegmon of the jaw – pus gradually affects all soft tissues, causing swelling of the tongue, asymmetry (skew) of the face and other complications.
  • Fistula – the formation of a defect in the mucous membrane at the level of the apex of the tooth root and the formation of a hole for the natural exit of the purulent mass.
  • Sepsis – the entry of an abscess into the bloodstream provokes severe intoxication of the body and disruption of the internal organs.
  • Osteomyelitis – the spread of infection eventually leads to atrophy of bone tissue and the need for tooth extraction. Treatment of periodontitis Wuppertal
