The enormous value of the teeth could be explained only by who has experienced their loss. A false idea that implants could replace easily every tooth has pushed many patients to give up on their teeth too quickly.
The success of dental implants and their esthetics integration in the mouth, however, is higher in patients where bone and soft tissue (gingiva) are well preserved.
Since parondontal disease affects both bone and gingiva, an early intervention should be mandatory.
Even though periodontal treatments starts with prevention (regular cleanings and good hygiene habits are excellent precautions to avoid parodontal disease), scaling and root planning are crucial to treat the progression of the disease.
