Fixing of loose teeth

The gingivitis, the inflammation of the gum is only the beginning of the way leading to periodontitis and then to tooth loss.

Gingivitis is generally caused by inappropriate oral hygiene habits, as not regular or incorrect tooth brushing techniques, lack of regular plaque removal.

Some warning signs: oversensitive gum or tooth neck, bleeding of gum, swollen gum, redness, small blisters on the gum, pain.

According to shocking international statistics nearly 80% of the population over 40 suffers from gingivitis, and 80% of tooth losses over 35 are caused by gingivitis.

As the inflammation progresses, bone, gum and periodontium will be damaged, a pocket full of bacteria forms between the teeth and gum. This pocket, as a permanent source of infection, affects the functions of the whole body, resulting in various side effects, discomfort, serious secondary diseases.

 


What is periodontitis?

The periodontitis is a more severe stage of the gingivitis, in which bacterial colonies are forming, the gums are receding, and the tooth necks will be exposed. This condition may cause the deterioration of oral comfort, unpleasant odours, considerable increase of tooth sensitivity to cold, warm, sweet, and even the loosening and loss of teeth. The shrinking extends from the gum to the inner tissues. The gum and the bone are continuously receding; the teeth are emerging more and more from the gum and bone tissue, and ultimately the teeth fall out. If the process is not stopped, even tooth replacement by implants becomes complicated, sometimes almost impossible.

Based on several years’ experience, the surgical regeneration of vertical intrabony pockets, and implantation of bone grafts are not to be considered as surely successful.

What can we do with loose teeth?

It is common that together with invasive gum treatment splinting of loose teeth becomes necessary, however it is not the final solution, because the root of the condition, the gingivitis is to be treated.
