The Department of Periodontology deals with diseases of the periodontium, i.e. the study of the tissues surrounding the tooth, the gums, the elastic periodontium fibres and the bone. Periodontal diseases are very serious as they affect not only the health of teeth and gums but also the whole body. We know that these diseases can be greatly reduced, contained or even avoided by early detection. For this reason, we focus on prevention and have integrated molecular dentistry into our practice concept.
A precise periodontal diagnosis and the effective treatment methods of modern periodontology enable us to attenuate, stop and in the best case even cure a disease of the periodontium.
Periodontitis can be caused by illnesses or even trigger them. Indicators can be osteoporosis, diabetes mellitus or immune deficiency. But also strong nicotine or alcohol consumption, unbalanced nutrition or pregnancy can be triggering factors.
First, the tooth and root surfaces are mechanically cleaned with ultrasound and curette in order to safely eliminate the pathogenic germs. This treatment is carried out several times under local anaesthesia.
If periodontitis has already developed, periodontal surgery can be used to contain the disease and reconstruct functional and aesthetic damage to the jawbone and gums.
This treatment must always be combined with periodontal prophylaxis.
With this treatment, we have various options at our disposal in order to carry out the procedure for you as relaxed as possible.
In any case, a detailed diagnosis is an absolute prerequisite for the success of the treatment. Here we set also on the innovative Molecular Dentistry.
