Periodontitis is one of the most common chronic diseases of the dental apparatus worldwide. In Germany alone, around 12 million people suffer from this. This disease is an inflammation caused by bacteria, which manifests itself in a largely irreversible destruction of the periodontium.  It begins with inflammation of the gums, which is characterized by reddening of the gums, bleeding when brushing your teeth, or even spontaneous local pain. This initial inflammation can be treated by thoroughly removing the tartar on and under the gums, correcting the brushing technique, and using professional hygiene products with antiseptic and antibacterial properties. The condition of this inflammation can worsen if the patient neglects the progressive damage of periodontal disease. These are:

  • Damage to the alveolar bone and ligaments supporting the tooth
  • Occurrence of periodontal sacs and periodontal abscesses
  • Tooth mobility that ends with the loss of the affected teeth

Our practice pays special attention to the prevention and treatment of periodontitis. It is a serious condition that affects more and more people regardless of age, so the counseling protocol, prevention, treatment and follow-up are extremely important to our team.

Depending on the degree of periodontitis or the predisposition of the patient to periodontitis, the periodicity of the prophylactic sessions and the time of periodontal treatment are determined together with the treating dentist. This treatment is actually a thorough dental hygiene with anesthesia, which is minimally invasive for the patient and is performed by the dentist.

We believe that after periodontal treatment, follow-up checks are very important for maintaining the result and improving the clinical situation. For this reason, we take our work very seriously and inform you regularly so that you can return to the follow-up check-ups and teeth cleaning.
