Periodontitis diagnosis


  • By evaluating medical history. 


The medical history helps the doctor identify all the symptoms that may cause dryness of the mouth and further causes inflammation that may result in causing periodontitis.


  • Mouth examination. 


Evaluation of the mouth will help the doctor identify the presence of tartar or build-up of plaque that may lead to periodontitis.


  • X-Ray. 


X-Ray helps identify the deeper pockets present in the oral cavity that allows the doctor to understand the severity of the disease based on the damaged tissue.


  • Measuring the depth of the gap. 


If the patient has a depth of more than 4 mm, it may indicate the presence of periodontitis.

Treatment for periodontal diseases. 

Patients suffering from periodontitis can opt for surgical treatment or non-surgical treatment. 

Surgical treatment. 

Considering the severity of the inflammation, the patient is recommended to opt for surgical treatment. Severe cases may not require surgical treatment. 


  • Grafting of soft tissue. 


Patients suffering from periodontitis are recommended to attach a soft tissue extracted from the mouth roof to the affected area. This helps reduce the development of plaque in the affected region and gives a normal appearance.


  • Tissue regeneration. 


This method helps develop bones that are destroyed by the microorganism. The doctor will keep a small piece of fabric between the bone and the tooth that helps prevent unnecessary tissue development into the healing area that allows the bone to regrow.


  • Proteins that stimulate tissue growth 


The doctor recommends the use of a gel on the affected region. This gel contains a protein responsible for the growth of the enamel and stimulates the growth of healthy bone.

Non-surgical treatment. 


  • Medication. 


Using medication topically or orally helps in preventing the growth of the bacteria. Using a mouth cleaner or gel helps in eliminating the development of periodontitis.


  • Scaling. 


This method helps remove the tartar and bacterial growth from the tooth surface. This method is performed by using laser technique or ultrasonic devices.


  • Root planing. 


Root planing helps in smoothing the surface and preventing the building up of the tartar and bacteria that results in causing inflammation or delay in healing of the tissue.
