It is not necessary, however, silver amalgam fillings should be changed. Actually, they contain mercury that is a toxic metal. In certain situations, there is a possibility that mercury is released from a filling, which can be harmful. But the quantities released are extremely small, so it is not alarming. Still, since there is an alternative to amalgam fillings in the form of white composite dental fillings, the replacement is recommended. An additional reason for replacing amalgam fillings may be that most commonly there are caries beneath teeth. Therefore, it is best to schedule a check-up and get advice from a dentist.
Periodontitis is a disease of the tissue surrounding the teeth and alveolar bone around teeth. There are therapies that can slow down the progress of the disease and thus improve the situation. The best form of therapy is prevention.
If periodontitis is in its initial stage (the inflammation of gums – gingivitis), dental calculus, residual plaque and pathogenic microorganisms are removed. Afterwards, it is of utmost importance to maintain proper oral hygiene.
In advanced stages of periodontitis, the therapy implies surgical intervention (surgical treatment of gum recession). Then an artificial bone is placed, and PRF preparations stimulate its regeneration. In this way, the worst consequences of the disease can be prevented.

Unpleasant breath from the mouth can occur due to various causes. First of all, it can result from a problem in the mouth or a digestive system (stomach, intestines). An unpleasant breath in the mouth implies a disease: tooth decay, gum disease (paradontopathy), mouth ulcers, and infection. Apart from these things, bad breath can be caused by poor oral hygiene, i.e. bacteria from foods particles that accumulate on teeth.
The inflammation of gum (gingivitis) is a disease caused by dental plaque full of bacteria. The inflammation of gum is a “silent” illness, so the symptoms are often hardly noticeable.
