Our periodontal treatments got your gum’s back.
What is periodontics?
Periodontics is the dental specialty in charge of the tissues supporting teeth, like gums, mucus and alveolar bones.
Dental hygiene is not just about cosmetic. Moreover, besides cavities, a common problem happening with the passing of time is tartar and plaque accumulation in places out of the brush’s reach. Flossing helps, although that doesn’t remove the need to make regular dental cleaning. At least, once a year,
When plaque seeps under the gums, bacteria cause them to swell, provoking gingivitis, periodontitis and affecting the alveolar bone, which may lead to tooth loss if not treated on time.
Benefits of periodontics
- Early detection and prompt treatment of periodontal disease
- you’ll learn the right dental hygiene techniques
- Help to prevent complications from other smaller problems
- Extends good oral health
Prevention is the base of a healthy mouth, and that’s why everyone should have their teeth professionally cleaned and visit their dentist regularly. Not doing so is strongly linked to the appearance of the problems periodontics treats.
The gums function is to support the teeth from the root and the bone. When tartar and certain bacteria leak down the gums, they swell, bleed and lose the strength they need. Our experience says this is a very frequent problem needing immediate attention.
Gums, their color, the tooth’s exposition and tartar concentrations show this progression. In many cases, a curettage is needed. A moderately invasive intervention made under local anesthetics. By removing calculus long-term harm is reduced.
We will explain the complete process, and advise if you should adjust your brushing technique or add something to improve it.

The amount of bacteria present in the mouth is huge, Most of them are harmless, but good dental hygiene is vital to keep their colonies in the right balanced proportion. Gums have a great absorption capacity and plaque is not exempt. Food debris accumulation and decomposition in interdental spaces generate what is known as tartar: a hard layer where teeth meet the gums. That makes them swell and bleed, and leads to gingivitis. If detected on time it can be controlled and avoid it becoming gum-reducing periodontitis. But allowing its progression may let it reach the alveolar bone and slowly destroy it, causing tooth loss.
Preventing, diagnosing and treating these sorts of diseases is what periodontics is about. Its most frequent treatment is curettage, consisting in scraping teeth under the gums to remove calculus and clean the surface.
Periodontal disease is chronic and makes it necessary for the patient to have frequent control visits to the dentist. The visit frequency is, of course, relative. It depends on how deteriorated the bone is, the patient’s habits, and other objective factors like age or risk factors.
At the Arte Sano Clinic we will examine the state of your mouth and your gums, and guide you through new hygiene techniques and materials, in order to stop the progression of periodontal disease. We put the person first, and this is about general health.
