Periodontology and periodontal surgery

Parodontitis

Parodontitis is an inflammatory illness of the periodontal apparatus, the so called periodontium, which can lead to a loosening of the teeth and – in the worst cases – even to the loss of them.

After eating, dental plaque in which bacteria can develop builds up on the teeth’s surface. If the plague is not be removed by adequate oral hygiene actions to be taken, toxins released by the bacteria will lead to an inflammation of the periodontal apparatus.

In the early stadium of this disease, a swelling, reddening or increased tendency of gum bleeding may occur. The bone then continues to recede and the teeth get loose.

Parodontitis treatment

Diagnostics

The treatment’s progress is documented as part of a detailed parodontal analysis including different parameters of the periodontal apparatus. If necessary, X-rays are taken so that the medical staff can judge the state of the bone.

Professional dental hygiene

The first step is to remove the dental plaque right above the gingival by means of a professional tooth cleaning process. The patient is given advice and trained in individual oral hygiene.

Initial therapy

Hard and soft plaque underneath the gum is cleaned  with special instruments, and the periodontal pockets are. After a phase of healing a new periodontal status will be taken to evaluate the success of the treatment. If the therapy was effective the patient will be integrated into an individual follow-up program.

Surgical therapy

In worse case, especially if the parodontitis had already destroyed some of the bone structure, eliminating the plaque in the initial therapy might not be sufficient to cope with the inflammation. In that case it is necessary to eliminate the remaining plague under visual control in a minimally invasive surgical intervention. Furthermore it is possible to build up the lost bone structure in a guided tissue regeneration process.

Individual follow-up program

The long-standing success of our treatments, which above all means the preservation of your teeth, mainly depends on the thorough removal of plaque in daily oral hygiene as well as on regular control examinations.  We of course support you in this area and design an individual follow-up program for you, particularly taking into account your individual risk factor.

Periodontal surgery

Microsurgical operation methods

Microsurgical instruments, materials and operation methods allow a minimally invasive operative way of proceeding and improve the treatment’s success.

Regenerative periodontal surgery

Applying regenerative procedures, such as the guided tissue regeneration (GTR), might lead to regaining lost bone structure and periodontal apparatus, which can in the long run save ill teeth.

Plastic periodontal surgery

Plastic periodontal surgery might help to harmonize the gum margin line and cover receding gums.
