There are no unnecessary organs in my body. I feel affection even for my gums.
Woody Allen

There are always some “shadows” behind the success of famous people. Modest, discreet, invisible, but they decide about everything. There is always the darker side of the coin, the world behind the curtain and unfinished coffee. Everything counts after all, even the things we do not pay much attention to. Beautiful and healthy smile always meets with standing ovation. And what’s behind? Healthy gums. They are behind the success of our dentition. They quietly do a great job, not complaining about lack of holidays or overtime. They are the faithful companions and loyal servants. They act as confidants and best friends…Now the time has come to come out of the shadow…

Healthy and beautiful smile also means healthy gums. Symptoms such asreceding gums, temperature hypersensitivity, gums pulling away from the teeth, formation of gaps between teeth, relocation of teeth,loose teeth or even tooth loss, bad breath, bleeding, swollen or red gums are signs of a disease affecting gums and other tissues surrounding the teeth – periodontitis. In all of the above mentioned problems, a dental discipline called periodontology comes to help – as there is no celebrity smile without healthy gums…Just like there is no rainbow without rain and no amber without a storm…

At Villa Nova Dental Clinic we offer each patient with periodontium diseases comprehensive care based on solid knowledge and advanced therapeutic methods.

Periodontology is the speciality of dentistry that treats periodontal diseases.

The periodontium is made up from tissues that surround a tooth and keep it in the bone. They include:

  • gingiva (gums),
  • a bone surrounding the tooth,
  • cementum,
  • periodontal ligaments.

If an inflammation occurs, the periodontium is subject to gradual damage, which causes the teeth to become loose and with time – fall out.

Not all Patients are aware that periodontium and dental diseases are primary pockets of infection, which may be the source of various complications, including:

  • endocarditis andmyocarditis,
  • optic neuritis and uveitis,
  • low birth weight,
  • arthritis,
  • nephritis,
  • it may also negatively affect the course of diabetes and many other systemic diseases.

80% OF ADULTS IN POLAND SUFFER FROM PERIODONTAL DISEASES (PERIODONTITIS).

MANY PATIENTS ARE CONVINCED THAT PERIODONTITIS IS INCURABLE. THEY COULDN’T BE MORE WRONG AND THE EFFECTS MAY BE TRAGIC!

The main cause of periodontal diseases is insufficient oral hygiene (tartar and dental plaque related to the adverse effect of bacteria present on the surface of teeth).

Factors that contribute to the development of periodontitis include:

  • genetic factors only favour adverse reactions to the presence of dental plaque and tartar,
  • diabetes, hyperthyroidism and some other generic diseases,
  • occlusal abnormalities,
  • immunological system disorders,
  • smoking cigarettes,
  • stress
