"Periodontitis"Do you have unpleasant breath, or tend to spit blood while brushing your teeth?
“Periodontal disease”, as people like to refer to it (the correct name is periodontitis), is in full swing; most Croatian adults have at least some sort of periodontal defect or problem. Unfortunately, due to a scarce awareness of the necessity for timely treatment, tooth extraction due to looseness is a common occurrence. Periodontitis (periodontal disease) is a chronic inflammation of the periodontal tissue, caused by poor oral hygiene and plaque / tartar buildup, but smoking, stress, inadequate prosthetic replacements, improper teeth position, and genetic predisposition also contribute to a greater or lesser extent. The first signs of periodontitis are bleeding while brushing your teeth and soreness of the gums (gingivitis). If it’s not treated, it will progress along the root, destroying the fiber tissue that binds the tooth to the bone (periodontitis). The tooth will become wobbly and ultimately fall out, leaving the patient suffering from pain and bad breath.
