Periodontal care provided - Introduction
The more severe the periodontitis, the more bone is lost, with periods of remission and exacerbation, which can lead to the loss of the tooth itself. Recent research shows that periodontitis has links to various diabetics, heart disease, low birth weight of newborns and general immune system vulnerability.
What is causing periodontitis?
In addition, smoking reduces tissue inflammation and bleeding, even when the tube is inserted. In such cases, periodontal pockets and severe bone loss are likely to be obscured. Smokers are more at risk than non-smokers for recurrent development of other diseases. In this respect, they should be closely monitored and receive hygiene care four times a year to help them meet the challenge of eliminating these germs.
