The foundation of a healthy smile

Periodontal risk factors


Several risk factors, although incapable of starting periodontal disease on their own, can speed up its evolution and render it unstable when in the presence of inflammation.

In an effort to eliminate these factors, some of the following treatments may be required:

  1. Making of a bite plane to control the trauma caused by teeth grinding (bruxism)
  2. Occlusal adjustment
  3. Splinting of weakened adjacent teeth
  4. Extraction of untreatable teeth
  5. Antibiotics
  6. Smoking cessation

CAP annual meeting
