not just lip service
A perfect smile not only depends on flawless teeth but also on healthy gums that are free of inflammation and which surround, support and nourish the teeth. In dental jargon we speak of “red aesthetics”.
Toothpaste commercials often refer to “periodontitis”, where the supporting structures of the teeth (periodontium) are inflamed. Factors implicated in the development of periodontitis are dental plaque, substantial deposits, stress and smoking. Periodontitis results in unattractive effects such as swollen gums, long front teeth with exposed necks and tooth migration. The microbes that cause periodontitis are also responsible for other diseases. Many adults suffer from chronic periodontitis, but not all adults seek treatment. Periodontitis is often underestimated and not taken seriously – a grave mistake, because without professional treatment of the periodontium, an otherwise decay-free, healthy tooth loses its firm hold in the bone and can fall out in the course of time.
Imminent periodontitis can be detected early with the help of a simple test. Non-traumatic systematic and regenerative periodontitis treatment is carried out by means of manual instruments, ultrasonic scaling or surgery, depending on the indication. If necessary, we perform a bacteria identification test followed by antibiotic therapy. In parallel, we support you with regular follow-up care and customized professional dental cleaning to ensure the long-term health of your gums and teeth.
