What is Periodontitis?
Periodontitis is a severe gum infection that damages the soft tissue and destroys the bone that supports your teeth. When these tissues are “injured,” our teeth become increasingly mobile, leading to tooth loss or worse if not treated timely.
Periodontitis is the advanced stage of gum disease, which begins as gingivitis. It’s caused by the accumulation of dental plaque, a sticky film of bacteria that forms on teeth. If left untreated, this plaque hardens under the gum line into tartar, leading to inflammation and periodontitis.
Periodontitis is one of the most common causes of tooth loss in adults. Chronic periodontitis affects adults primarily, but it can occur at any age.
Regular dental check-ups, good oral hygiene practices, and professional cleanings are essential in preventing and managing this condition.
Common Periodontitis Symptoms
Gums that Bleed and Detach
Gums that bleed upon brushing and seem detached from the tooth surface signal potential periodontal issues.
As the condition progresses, teeth might feel loose or mobile due to the weakening of surrounding tissues.
Changes in Tooth Position
The shifting of teeth position can occur, indicating underlying gum problems.
Pus and Swellings
The presence of pus and swellings between teeth and gums could indicate advanced gum disease.
Bad Breath or Taste
Persistent bad breath or a foul taste in the mouth may be associated with periodontitis-related infections.

Diagnosis of Periodontitis
We meticulously examine your gums and supporting structures, evaluating overall gum health and identifying potential problems.
X-rays play a vital role in revealing hidden issues in oral health helping detect bone loss and signs of gum disease that may not be visible during visual examinations.
Our periodontist measures periodontal pocket depths, providing information about the severity of gum disease and guiding treatment planning.
We offer advanced genetic testing to determine your susceptibility to gum disease, enabling us to tailor treatment strategies to your unique genetic profile.

Surgical Treatment of Gum Disease
Laser-Assisted Periodontal Treatment at Symeou Dental Center
Although scaling and root planing effectively remove plaque buildup of teeth in patients with periodontal disease, it does not eliminate all the bacteria that cause gum disease.
When necessary, the treatment is supplemented with the use of laser to effectively disinfect the pockets between the gum and the tooth root, and remove any remaining deposits after the traditional treatment.
Our laser technology is precise, quick and painless. Its germicidal effect means bacteria are removed, and existing biofilm on the tooth surface is dehydrated and deactivated.
The integrated water supply cools the preparation site and rinses out the removed deposits. Our laser technology facilitates faster wound healing without postoperative complications.
Causes & Prevention of Periodontitis
Severe Complications of Periodontitis
Loss of Teeth
As periodontal disease advances, the risk of tooth loss increases due to weakened gum and bone support.
The shrinking of gums can expose tooth roots, leading to sensitivity and aesthetic concerns.
Severe gum issues can erode the jawbone, compromising oral structure and tooth stability.
Infections within the gums can result in the formation of pockets of pus, causing discomfort and further damage.
