Periodontitis is a disease of the oral cavity commonly known as “pyorrhea” caused by bacteria colonizing the gingival grooves around the teeth, creating gingival “pockets” and degeneration of gingival tissues and alveolar bone.

Symptoms associated with periodontitis:

Gum infections

Dental mobility

Teeth falling out spontaneously


Gingival bleeding

Recurrent abscesses

How periodontitis is treated

The disease is curable almost to the last stages. It starts with a phase called “causal therapy” that helps the patient remove the causes of periodontitis. After an adequate period, the results obtained with this first conservative phase are re-evaluated. Where necessary, the residual gum and bone defects (pockets) produced by the disease will be corrected with the surgical phase of the treatment.


Pyorrhea can increase the risk factor in patients suffering from cardiovascular disease or diabetes and, in pregnant women, favors the birth of underweight babies. A well-conducted specialist visit can prevent the onset of periodontal disease. It is important to remember that undiagnosed and treated periodontitis worsens to produce the loss of teeth and alveolar bone, making it difficult even to resort to implants to replace lost teeth. Studio Calesini offers periodic professional support interventions structured according to a personalized intervention plan defined after a check-up visit.
