   the constant, it is a normal physiological phenomenon. If you stagger your teeth in the adult, it is often said that the wrong gums and other periodontal tissue - a condition that requires the help of a dentist and long-term treatment.

 Stagger teeth - a dangerous signal

Why can stagger teeth adult

Such a condition can be caused by or in violation of metabolic processes in periodontal tissues (periodontal disease), or inflammation (periodontitis). Often there is a combination of these processes, when the disease begins with metabolic disorders, resulting in impaired immunity and joins the inflammatory process. Previously, it was generally considered a single disease. And periodontal disease and periodontitis proceed very long time and are an obstacle to any prosthetics and implantable titanium tooth roots, which subsequently underwent prosthetics.

Periodontitis is a complex of tissues surrounding the root of a tooth and having one with him genetic origin. It gums, mucous membrane covering of the alveolar jaw bone alveoli, periodontal (ligament that holds the tooth in the cell).

 Stagger teeth - a dangerous signal

The reason that stagger teeth - periodontitis

It called periodontitis inflammation of periodontal tissues. This disease is characterized by progressive destruction of the periodontal tissues and jaw bones, which are tooth rows.

It starts with gingivitis periodontitis usually - inflammation of the gums. Gradually between the tooth and the periodontal tissue tartar deposited, thereby forming a pocket or space between the tooth and periodontal tissue. Gradually, in the pocket of accumulated food debris, bacteria and their waste products that cause inflammation, destroying the periodontal tissues and loosening teeth. Eventually destroyed interdental bony septum that hold teeth in the cells, which further weakens the teeth, and they begin to fall.

The disease usually takes a long time, with exacerbations and remissions. Exacerbations are accompanied by such common disorders as fever and malaise. The acute course of the disease almost never occurs, but chronic periodontitis - quite common, it can be mild, moderate and severe degrees of severity:

  • easy periodontitis - gum bleeding How to prevent bleeding gums: important rules  How to prevent bleeding gums: important rules

  • periodontitis of moderate severity - significant bleeding, tooth sensitivity Tooth Sensitivity - sudden pain  Tooth Sensitivity - sudden pain
 , Redness and swelling of gums, gum reconfiguration, gapping gingiva to the tooth, the periodontal pocket of 4 mm;
  • severe periodontitis - pain, difficulty in biting and chewing, tooth mobility, the gap between them, suppuration, putrid breath, deformation gums, periodontal pockets of 6-7 mm or more.

Treatment of periodontitis should be comprehensive and individualized. Here are different types of surgical treatment to eliminate the periodontal pocket and the stimulation of regenerative processes in the jaw bone. With orthopedic treatment eliminates shakiness teeth. In addition, all identified and being treated carious teeth, removes dental plaque, including tartar between the gum and tooth. The treatment takes a long time, while the patient is required to teach proper oral hygiene.

 Stagger teeth - a dangerous signal

The reason that stagger teeth - periodontal disease

Periodontal disease - an exchange-dystrophic (ie, with a decrease in the amount of periodontal tissue) disease. This inflammatory process in the tissue is missing, exposed necks of the teeth (the place of transition in the crown of the tooth root), and sometimes part of the roots. Tartar can be a little while so periodontal pockets usually does not happen, but the jaw bone can be reduced in volume due to metabolic disorders. This characteristic bone lesions symmetric and uniform reduction of the height mezhalveolyarnyh bony partitions. Periodontal disease is often associated with diseases of the cardiovascular system.

The cause of periodontal disease may be hormonal disorders Hormonal disorders - oversupply and a lack of equally dangerous  Hormonal disorders - oversupply and a lack of equally dangerous
 Diseases, blood circulation (hypertension, atherosclerosis, vascular dystonia). It contributes to the emergence of periodontal disease, and a sedentary lifestyle.

Treatment of periodontal disease begins with identifying the root cause of its appearance, that is, from a comprehensive survey. Therefore, periodontal disease is usually treated with two specialists: a dentist and a doctor whose specialty is to detect diseases.

Dentist primarily eliminates tooth sensitivity, detects and cures all of their disease, eliminates sharp edges of teeth with their increased abrasion, makes recommendations for oral hygiene. Required appointed treatment aimed at restoring or improving the blood supply to the periodontal tissues.

If you stagger teeth, it is necessary to prepare for a full examination and duration of treatment.
