Periodontal disease and EvoSolution

If you do lose teeth due to periodontal disease, then the bone that was there supporting the tooth previously, will be destroyed and start to recede, leaving you with considerably less bone in your jaw.

When losing teeth due to periodontal disease, you may be looking for a solution to replace those lost teeth. Traditionally, dentures have been the solution, with dental implants being ruled out due to the loss of bone.

But dentures can often be ill-fitting, sometimes painful and you can get food stuck in them when you’re trying to get your favourite baguette! Add to that, they need fixing with adhesive every morning, and sometimes after food, which needs to then be cleaned off every night.

Dental Implants At EvoDental

In fact, dental implants can actually restore lost bone by the implant being attached, stimulating bone growth in the same way that a natural tooth would.

As our procedures involve full jaw – top or bottom or both – correction, we require no more than 5mm wide and 10mm high, and of adequate spread across the jaw. We use cone beam CT (CBCT) scanning – which is free during your free assessment – allowing us to evaluate the availability, position and quality of the smallest amounts of remaining bone.

The treatment plan that our dentists devise for you will solely be based on your needs and requirements, no-one else’s. You will find out on the day of your free consultation as to whether you are a candidate for our precision engineered fixed full-jaw dental implant restoration and you can soon be walking away with a smile in a day!

Periodontal Disease FAQs

What is periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease is a gum infection that, when left untreated, destroys the supporting bone around your teeth. Otherwise known as gum disease, this can cause teeth to loosen and fall out.

There are four stages of periodontal disease:

  • Gingivitis
  • Slight periodontal disease
  • Moderate periodontal disease
  • Advanced periodontal disease

How do I know if I have periodontal disease?

You are at risk from periodontal disease if you don’t have good dental hygiene habits, such as thoroughly brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing at least once a day.

You need to look out for a variety of symptoms such as:

  • Bad taste in your mouth
  • Bad breath
  • Bleeding gums
  • Pain when eating
  • Loose teeth
  • Teeth falling out

What are the main causes of periodontal disease?

The main cause of periodontal disease is poor dental hygiene, which causes plaque to build up on and around the teeth. Once this plaque hardens, it can result in bleeding gums, pain when chewing, and loose teeth, which may eventually fall out.

Other causes include:

  • Smoking
  • Obesity
  • Poor nutrition
  • Genetics

Is periodontal disease reversible?

The first stage of periodontal disease, known as gingivitis, is reversible. This presents itself as sore, swollen, and bleeding gums. Good dental health hygiene can reverse this stage.

The second stage, slight periodontal disease, is not reversible as it involves infection in the bone around your teeth, but the good news is that it is manageable. A visit to your dentist to have plaque and bacteria removed by planing and scaling can keep this under control.

The third stage, moderate periodontal disease, is diagnosed when the disease is more advanced and infection is found deeper in the gums. This time, the scaling and planing will take more than one sitting to be effective.

The final stage is advanced periodontal disease, and at this point, the only option will be to have the infection removed via dental surgery. All stages, apart from the first, are not reversible.
