Periodontitis is a disease of the supporting structures of the tooth (periodontium) in which bacteria settle between the tooth and gums, causing inflammation. This can cause the connection between tooth and jawbone to weaken with time, leading to loose teeth and eventually even to partial tooth loss.
Scientific studies have shown periodontitis to have an adverse effect on cardiovascular diseases, to make the treatment of diabetes more difficult and to increase the risk of premature birth.
The aim of our treatment is to stop the acute inflammation first and to partially restore and maintain the healthy condition using regenerative measures. Our qualifications and intensive, close-knit support generally allow us to achieve this result.
We make use of state-of-the-art treatment methods for this purpose. After a precise diagnosis, the supporting structures of the tooth (periodontium) are first gently cleaned. Only then are regenerative procedures (bone augmentation) possible and executed if necessary.
Oral health starts at home.
Oral hygiene plays an important role when a periodontal disease is already underway. We will give you personalized instructions for oral care at home to develop healthy hygiene habits.
Localized gingival recession (receding gums)
In contrast to periodontitis, localized gingival recession (receding gums) occurs when gum tissue recedes without inflammation.
In order to stop the gums from receding, it is necessary to change the way you brush your teeth as a first measure in order to continue caring for the gums efficiently but in a much gentler way.
In addition, a microsurgical procedure can be performed to cover the exposed tooth cervix with the patient's own tissue so that it is aesthetically covered in the long term. In many cases, sensitivity can be eliminated this way.
