Periodontists

Don’t risk tooth loss. If you have been told that you have gum disease, then you will want to see a dental specialist as soon as possible. In Guatemala you can do more than save money on your dental care. You can save your teeth.

Periodontists are dentists who specialize in the supporting and surrounding areas of the teeth such as the gums and ligaments, as well as the conditions that affect them and the procedures used to treat these conditions.

Most of the time, periodontists deal with the health of the gums and the prevention and treatment of periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease. Gum disease is caused by the accumulation of plaque at or below the gum line. This plaque is made up of bacteria and if left unchecked, it will begin to erode the bone at the base of the tooth. Once the damage reaches a certain level, the gums begin to bleed. The teeth may even loosen and fall out.

Detection and treatment of gum disease is important because it’s the number one cause of tooth loss in adults. However, since it’s not painful at the early stages, many patients neglect treatment until the disease has developed to a serious condition. Fortunately, periodontists in Guatemala are affordable, so you can get treatment early.

Periodontists typically deal with early gum disease in preventative ways, for example, by cleaning the teeth and the gums. This is typically done once per year. Once the plaque has advanced, the periodontist will use specialized tools to remove it, sometimes scraping the roots of the teeth below the gum line. If the damage is severe, a periodontist might try to reconstruct or otherwise compensate for the loss of bone structure.
