An abscess is an infection with the production of pus, accompanied by more or less intense inflammation of the periodontium and alveolar bone. The presence of an abscess requires the dentist to determine the cause, which could be a granuloma or an endodontic-periodontal pocket.
A granuloma is the result of an infection at the apex of a tooth. It can be cured by treating the infected canal with washes and endodontic instruments. If untreated, a granuloma can develop into a cyst in apex and this can lead to the loss of the affected element. It is a region of local infection that must be removed for the health of the patient.
Deep gum receding on upper right incisor, which can be improved with a gum graft.
Healing after 15 days. The mucus of the graft has become equivalent to that of the receiving site.
Periodontal disease starts out as a simple gingivitis that, if left untreated, can escalate over time, ranging from a few months to a few years, in a full-blown periodontal disease, with bone loss. It is a chronic disease and its performance proceeds to an "advanced" phase with peaks of activity and rest. Unlike tooth decay, which can be treated in one session, periodontal disease requires careful monitoring over time because it is a disease subject to relapses and, if not detected and treated, it leads to tooth loss.
Upper incisors severely compromised by a "periodontal disease": The teeth are moving.
The incisors and canines were stuck with one splinting: the wire is immersed in the composite to make it invisible while simultaneously uniting and strengthening your teeth.
Thanks to the material, nothing can be noticed from the outside. The gap between the central and lateral incisors was also closed, and the beauty of the smile is recovered.
