Periodontal Treatment (Gum Treatment)

Gentle Periodontal Treatment (Gum Treatment)

It’s not just the teeth that contribute to a perfect smile. Just as important are healthy gums that are free from inflammation and harmoniously embrace the teeth. Among experts we speak of “red aesthetics”. An inflammation of the periodontium is a disease that we dentists call periodontitis (often incorrectly referred to as periodontosis or paradontosis). An inflammation of the gums is called gingivitis. Factors that are considered responsible and could lead to one of these diseases are plaque, hereditary predispositions, stress and tobacco consumption. The consequences of periodontitis are not only cosmetic, such as red and swollen gums, long anterior teeth with exposed necks or tooth migration. Periodontal germs are also held accountable for other diseases. Many adults suffer from this chronic disease, but not all of them do something about it. Periodontitis is often underestimated and not taken seriously – a grave mistake, because without professional treatment of the periodontal apparatus even a caries free, healthy tooth can lose its hold in the bone and fall out.

A simple test can be used to detect an imminent periodontitis at an early stage. Depending on the indications, a gentle systematic and regenerative treatment can be carried out through ultrasonic scaling or surgery. If necessary, a bacteria test is run and then followed by an antibiotic therapy. During the treatment we offer regular aftercare and professional teeth cleaning(tooth preservation therapy). So that your gums and teeth remain healthy in the long run.
