Periodontal disease

Paradontosis, often erroneously called paradentosis, is the common name of infectious periodontal disease, leading to the loss of teeth. The most common reason for its formation is inadequate oral hygiene and smoking, but genetic factors may also have an impact on its formation. This means that some people have a genetic predisposition to periodontitis or gingival bleeding.

If you have hereditary tendencies to parodontosis, special attention should be paid to its prophylaxis. The most effective way to do this is to take care of the oral hygiene and general health of the mouth. Hygiene treatments carried out professionally in a dentist’s office and home oral care (teeth cleaning techniques, flossing, rinses) combined with regular dental check-ups are the best prevention for this condition. However, if you already have symptoms of parodontosis, you must start treatment immediately. First, anti-inflammatory, removing the causes of the disease, and then repairing and regenerating, removing the effects of the disease.

According to the research of the Dr. Laskus Foundation, Poles most often use toothpastes for bleeding gums with symptoms of parodontosis. In case of already existing problems is only symptomatic and does not remove the real causes of the disease. You should be aware that the treatment of periodontal disease is carried out not only for aesthetic effects and getting rid of problems with tooth mobility and gum pain, but also for the health of the whole organism. Untreated parodontosis can lead to many serious conditions occurring outside the oral cavity, for example atherosclerotic lesions, heart and cardiovascular diseases, infarctions, strokes, and diabetes.
