Periodontal Treatment
The best option for preventing dental loss.

What are gums?

Gums are coral pink tissues in the oral cavity that surround each tooth.

What are periodontal diseases?

Also referred to with the blanket term “gum disease,” periodontal diseases affect the oral cavity, leading to infections in the gums, and creating inflammation, bleeding, loosening of teeth, and even pain.

Depending on the severity of the disease, this illness is also called gingivitis or periodontitis.

Health and well-being of gums

The health and well-being of your gums is as important as that of your teeth.

Deficient care of the gums can provoke illnesses like gingivitis or periodontitis. A specialist in periodontics can help you recover the health and appearance of your gums.

“A common sickness.”

About 40% of adults suffer some form of gum disease without being conscious of it.

This disease advances silently, because symptoms are initially mild, becoming noticeable only as gum disease progresses. This is why gum disease often remains unnoticed by the person suffering from it.

The earlier it is diagnosed and treated, the higer the chance of a positive result.

After eating a meal, a thin coating made up of food particles stays on the teeth. This is what we call dentobacterial plaque, and if this plaque is not removed—whether because of a lack of brushing or merely bad brushing technique—it hardens and becomes what dentists call calculus or tartar. 

Tartar is full of toxins and bacteria, and the only way to remove it is through a cleaning that is performed by a dentist or periodontist. If this tartar is not removed, the space between gum and tooth starts to grow, leading to inflamation, bleeding, loosening of teeth, pain, and in the last instance, the loss of teeth.

  •  Bleeding: the most common and the most important symptom is bleeding. Bleeding in the gums is never normal, it doesn’t matter if it is a tiny and seemingly insignificant drop of blood: if there is bleeding, you likely have periodontal disease.

  • Red, swollen, and bland gums

  • Receding gums (longer teeth).

  • Loose teeth, loss or separation of teeth without any prior reason.

  • Pus in the area between teeth and gums

  • Badly adjusted prostheses

  • Pain in the gums

What is the treatment for these conditions?

The specific treatment for the periodontal condition will be determined by the periodontist based on your age, medical history, extent and severity of the condition, tolerance to specific medicines, surgical and non-surgical procedures, treatment expectations, opinions and preferences. The faster the diagnosis and treatment, the more teeth can be saved. At the end of treatment, it is vital to attend periodic check-ups and continue with hygiene procedures at home in order to prevent the problem from returning.  If you feel you have a periodontal problem, do not delay making an appointment with the our periodontist; your collaboration with the specialist is very important in ensuring successful treatment. 

  1. Apply ice to the operated area for 5 minutes, then remove for 5 minutes, alternating. Consume chilled liquid foods for the first 48 hours.
  2. Starting from the third day, apply warm moist compresses to the swollen area for 20 minutes every hour until swelling subsides.
  3. If gauze was applied, remove it after 15 minutes. If bleeding persists, apply new gauze and pressure for 30 minutes. Seek medical help if bleeding continues.
  4. Sleep semi-upright with pillows for the first 48 hours to prevent nighttime bleeding.
  5. Bruising may occur in the operated area for about 7 days.
  6. Rinse mouth with tap water, avoiding gargling. Do not use mouthwash unless directed by the doctor. Avoid spitting forcefully.
  7. Consume soft foods for a week, avoiding fatty or spicy foods. Do not use a straw for drinking. Resume normal diet after a week.
  8. Brush oral cavity gently, especially around the operation site.
  9. Rest and avoid sun exposure and strenuous activities for a week.
  10. Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption during the healing process.
  11. Limit talking to prevent swelling and avoid forcing mouth opening.
  12. Take medications as prescribed to prevent pain, infection, and swelling.
  13. Attend follow-up appointments for stitch removal and check-ups.


50% of a treatment´s success is due to the recovery. 

Selecting a destination with a climate favorable to healing and recovery processes during dental treatments is key to a successful result. As you can imagine, climates that are too hot for example the beach are unfavorable to healing as they provoke more and longer-lasting swelling, and they oblige the the patients to stay in their rooms, it is not recommended to go out in order to avoid being exposed to the sun and  high temperatures. 

Our clinic is located in a valley surrounded by mountains and evergreen forests, which allows us to enjoy an average temperature of 59 Fahrenheit degrees, ideal for good healing processes. Being the most attractive colonial city in Mexico, full of pedestrian zones, magical hidden corners and cobbled streets, San Cristóbal de las Casas invites you to go on tours and walks not only in the city but also in the surroundings during the days of your dental treatment.  The food on offer is varied and delicious, and the concentration of cafes, design stores and proposals that mix modern and traditional will complete your journey and experience.

Benefits of Temperate climate

Placing a dental implant is a procedure that is easier in a cool climate than in a warm one.

Heat can produce inflammation, which slows healing, and can make you, feel less comfortable in a warmer climate than you would be in a colder one.
