What Is Advanced Periodontal Disease Pyorrhea

Pyorrhea is not a pretty sight. In the early stages gums are discolored and become a dark red instead of their fresh pinkish color. As the disease progresses gums recede, pockets form and bleeding occurs.
Advanced periodontal disease (Pyorrhea) can effect the whole body causing in some cases life threatening health issues like:

  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Problems controlling Diabetes
  • Respiratory disease
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Low birth rate babies

Gum disease starts as a progression in three stages with Pyorrhea being the most serious.
Gingivitis is the earliest stage and is reversible; gums become inflamed from plaque build up at the gumline. There may be bleeding during flossing and brushing.
Stage 2 is where you begin to see irreversible damage to supporting bone and tissue. Pockets may form below the gumline; food and plaque become trapped. At this stage there is still hope if treatment is received early enough to prevent more damage.
It is at the third and final stage where Advanced Periodontitis wreaks total havoc and destruction on the bones and supporting structures of the teeth. Teeth can shift, become loose or even fall out. Aggressive dental treatment may be too much, too little too late to save teeth.

The warning signs that you need to take immediate action are:

 

  • Red and swollen gums
  • Bleeding when brushing or flossing
  • Pus between teeth and gums
  • Bad breath odor

What Causes Gum Disease

Plaque is the primary cause of periodontal disease.
Factors contributing to gum disease vary and can be triggered by:

  • Medications like anticonvulsants and those that reduce saliva flow
  • Hormonal changes as in pregnancy, puberty and menopause
  • Illness
  • Smoking
  • Bad oral hygiene

Treating Gum Disease

The key is catching gum disease in the early stage is key. Brushing, flossing and seeing a dentist to remove really stubborn tartar and plaque. Use a good mouthwash to kill bacteria. A consistent practice of oral hygiene and regular dental checkups (every 6 months) will nip future problems in the bud.

Treating Pyorrhea

The price of treating Pyorrhea can be expensive; the need for multiple procedures quickly sending the cost into thousands of dollars.

  • Bone and tissue graft
  • Scaling and root planning
  • X-rays
  • Gingival flap surgery
