Periodontics includes the treatment of the periodontium. This is the attachment of the tooth in the bone. By depositing calculus, which is nothing more than tartar under the gums, bacteria can attach and multiply, leading to inflammation of the periodontium. This is called periodontitis, colloquially also called periodontal disease. If this progresses, the affected teeth loosen and, in the worst case, tooth loss can occur.
The signs of periodontitis are checked regularly during your dental check-ups. If an inflammation of the periodontium is diagnosed, calculus and bacteria can be removed painlessly with the help of minimally invasive measures. The tissue can heal and with adequate cleaning and regular aftercare, the teeth can be saved.
Regular dental check-ups and tooth cleaning can prevent inflammation of the periodontium. We will be happy to recommend your individually necessary interval at your next appointment. Since the cost of professional tooth cleaning is based on the effort involved, patients benefit from lower costs if their teeth are cleaned regularly.
