The best periodontal microbiology in Grenada

The diagnosis of periodontal microbiology is the process of identifying the bacteria involved in the most aggressive forms of periodontitis. This can help your dental team develop a customized treatment plan to combat these bacteria, and prevent further damage to your teeth and gums.
Periodontitis is an oral disease caused by bacterial plaque infection. Plaque causes inflammation and destruction of the gum, alveolar bone and connective tissue. The destruction of these tissues leads to attachment loss (or bone loss) which can lead to tooth loss if left untreated.

How to prevent periodontitis?

Periodontitis is the most advanced stage of this type of disease. To prevent gingivitis from worsening to the point of becoming periodontitis, it is essential to follow a good daily oral hygiene routine. This includes brushing at least twice a day and flossing between teeth once a day.

To prevent the progression of gum disease, keep these tips in mind:

  • Floss daily. Plaque and food buildup between the teeth can lead to gingivitis. Flossing removes this buildup by cleaning in those areas that the toothbrush cannot reach properly.
  • Use a soft toothbrush. Hard bristles can damage gums and cause bleeding when brushing teeth.
  • Brush for at least two minutes, twice a day. This will help remove plaque and food from your teeth, preventing infection.
  • Use mouthwashes regularly.
  • Try to avoid smoking and reduce excess sugar.
  • Have check-ups with your dentist at least once or twice a year to know the state of your teeth and to be able to detect possible problems in time.

Benefits of periodontal treatment

The procedures carried out to stop the progression of periodontitis vary greatly depending on the stage and progression of the disease.
Maintaining good care of the gums and oral cavity not only promotes the health of the mouth, but also influences overall health.

Thanks to periodontal procedures we achieve:

  • A reduction of bacterial plaque, which can cause gingivitis and other diseases of the oral cavity.
  • An improvement in the quality of life, since our mouth is a gateway to our body and we can avoid many diseases by keeping it well.
  • Prevention of tooth loss through root canal treatment or extraction (in extreme cases).
  • Reduction of the risk of suffering problems such as halitosis
  • Reduced risk of developing diseases such as diabetes.
  • Improves the appearance and functionality of the mouth

If during brushing you suffer discomfort, bleeding or notice your gums swollen or reddish, do not hesitate to consult a professional in order to carry out a check-up and detect possible periodontal problems in time. In this way you will have the opportunity to detect early diseases that can become seriously complicated.
