Risks Involved with Periodontist Treatments

Posted on 10/24/2022 by Ronald Watkins
Risks Involved with Periodontist TreatmentsDifferent treatments for oral health problems include gum bleeding, gum recession, bad breath, and tooth loosening. These are known as periodontist treatments. Typically, these dental procedures should be done regularly to ensure that intense dental procedures are not necessary for later life. Periodontist treatments are generally safe for most patients. However, such treatments are associated with multiple risks after they are undertaken. Here are some possible risks associated with periodontist treatments:


Bacteria in the mouth can cause an infection called periodontitis, leading to tooth loss if not treated. Your periodontist will take steps to reduce your risk of infection during treatment, such as sterilizing all equipment used during the procedure and giving you antibiotics to prevent it from spreading. However, it's still possible for an infection to occur even if these precautions are taken.


This is a natural response to the surgery and can last up to a week. Swelling may be more noticeable after certain procedures, such as surgery to remove teeth or bone grafts. You can expect some swelling of your gums, cheeks, and lips.

Gum Disease

Gum disease is among the most common risk associated with periodontist treatments. It can be caused by bacteria that attack your gums, causing inflammation and tissue damage. In addition to destroying your gums and teeth, gum disease can contribute to severe health disorders such as diabetes and heart disorders. If you have gum disease, it's important to seek treatment from a periodontist as soon as possible.

Post Surgery Bleeding

A common risk of any oral surgery is bleeding after the procedure. This is especially true if you tend to bleed easily or have recently taken blood thinners. If you notice red or pink drainage coming from your mouth after your surgery, call the office where you had your procedure right away so that they can stop the bleeding and apply pressure to the area.
