Paradontitis (periodontitis) develops due to untreated chronic gingivitis, which shows vague symptoms at the beginning and is manifested by bleeding of the gums and sensitivity to touch. If not treated, gums gradually recede, tooth necks are expose, teeth move and come loose, and eventually are lost.
The primary cause of paradontitis is dental plaque and the bacteria contained in it. Due to insufficient dental hygiene, gingivitis develops as well as paradontitis (or periodontitis). Genetic dispositions to paradontitis may accelerate its development in disposed individuals.
Treatment of paradontitis is comprehensive and long-term. The cornerstone of paradontitis treatment is thorough dental hygiene and professional care by the dentist. The treatment must be started as soon as possible. Ideally, preventive measures must be observed to prevent development of the disease.
