Periodontal treatment and prevention is one of the most important tasks of a modern dental practice and is a subject to which we devote our utmost attention.
Periodontitis is the name for a form of gingivitis which, if untreated, leads initially to tooth loosening and later to tooth loss. This common disease often progresses in an insidious manner and goes unnoticed.
Causes of Periodontal Disease
The cause of peridontal disease is the special bacteria in the periodontal pocket and hereditary defects in the body’s own defence mechanisms. Stress, smoking and some illnesses and medications can lead to an increased risk of periodontal disease. Periodontitis that remains untreated can have serious effects on a person’s general health. As such, we recommend that it is dealt with in a timely fashion.
Periodontitis necessitates a consistent and systematic treatment concept. Making changes towards a healthy lifestyle, healthy diet and the avoidance of stress can contribute to the success of periodontal treatment.
To prevent the development of periodontal disease, we recommend a consistent and effective home-based oral hygiene routine and regular check-ups at the dentist.
