Periodontology

Parodontitis – a widespread problem

Gum disease, the bacterial infection of the periodontal apparatus, is known to affect as much as 80% of the population.

Accumulations of bacterial plaque begin to infect the gums. After initial reddening, swelling and bleeding of the gums, ever-deeper “periodontal pockets” develop and the bone substance is attacked. In the further course of acute periodontal disease the gums and jawbone recede. First of all the neck of the tooth becomes visible, later even the root, with the teeth taking on a longer appearance. In very severe cases tooth loss will result.

New non-surgical methods provide remedies

Modern periodontological methods allow gum disease to be stopped and healed – without surgical intervention. The sensitive roots of the teeth are anaesthetized then cleaned – either manually or by fine ultrasonic points – and gently smoothed. Patients can eat and drink normally as soon as the local anaesthetic wears off.

Laser therapy – gentle but effective, no anaesthetic required

Laser, an entirely new method of periodontal treatment, is practically painless, meaning local anaesthetic injections are generally no longer required.

Systematic prophylaxis guarantees long-term prevention

It is vital to ensure the long-term benefit of successful treatment by means of consistent oral hygiene. One essential component is regular participation in a professional programme of preventive dental care.

Participation in such a programme is the most effective course of action you can take to prevent gum disease.
