Paradontosis

Paradontosis is characterized by systemic lesions of the alveolar tissue (paradontium). It`s a dentistry disease that isn’t complicated with inflammation processes and only 1-8% of patients have it, so this disease is quite rare. Atrophic processes lead to a slow decrease in the height of the interdental septa and loss of bone tissue. Don’t confuse paradontosis and periodontitis as they have different symptoms and require different medication.

Symptoms of paradontosis

  • pale gums in the absence of signs of inflammatory processes;
  • the neck and part of the root of the tooth are exposed – this happens due to a decrease in the level of the gum (looks like “tooth lengthening”);
  • there are no bleeding gums;
  • there might be non-carious lesions of the teeth (erosion of enamel, wedge-shaped defects, increased abrasion);
  • the feeling of gums itching;
  • there is no tooth mobility, it`s fixed in its alveolar socket;
  • the presence of solid plaque (calculus);
  • lack of periodontal and gum pockets and purulent discharge.

Causes of paradontosis

The causes of periodontal disease are not precisely established, but there are a number of factors that can serve as a starting point in the development of this dental disease.

  • hormonal changes (connected with pregnancy, puberty, menopause, menstrual cycle). For each of these periods there are different degrees of acute sensitivity of the gums, which contributes to increasing their susceptibility to destructive processes;
  • various common diseases connected with the immune perturbation (including diabetes);
  • the use of certain medication that has a negative influence on oral health (antibiotics, anticonvulsants, etc.);
  • bad habits (smoking greatly aggravates the complex process of gum recovery);
  • genetic predisposition to paradontosis;
  • coronary heart disease (vegetovascular dystonia, insufficient blood supply to the gums, etc.) as well as endocrine disorders and metabolism failure.

Treatment of paradontosis

The treatment of paradontosis is a long and difficult process during which a complex approach and engaging of different specialists are required.

Surgical treatment of paradontosis

Surgical treatment is one of the most effective ways of paradontosis treatment. In particular, different methods of directed tissue regeneration and special materials (membranes and replanting materials) are used. Cell cultures are used that selectively increase the activity of regenerative processes – fibroblasts, thrombocyte growth factor. Together with osteoplastic materials and membrane technology, the above factors of growth of connective tissue cells make it possible to significantly increase the effectiveness of treatment.

Physiotherapy of paradontosis

Physiotherapy in paradontosis treatment is Vector-therapy, treatment with a laser, photodynamic therapy, electrophoresis, and gums massage. Physiotherapy procedures to a greater extent are aimed at restoring a good blood supply and nutrition of the affected tissues, and at effectively removing of the pathological microflora from the lesions.

Avanto clinics specialists recommend you to visit a dentist once every half year for the preventive examination, timely professional teeth cleaning and accurate diagnostics. It`s essential to maintain oral hygiene and timely visit the doctor in case of any negative symptoms to prevent the risk of periodontal disease and other dental diseases.
