Periodontitis - a widespread disease

Periodontology deals with the prevention (prophylaxis), detection (diagnostics) and treatment of diseases of the gums (gingiva) and the entire periodontium (periodontal apparatus), i.e. gums, bone, root cement and periodontal membrane.

One of the most common diseases in our population is periodontitis. The formation of gingival pockets and bone loss around teeth are irreversible processes.  As a result, the tooth loses its stability and tooth loss becomes an issue. Many factors play a role in the development of periodontitis. The main risk factor is bacterial plaque. Many other factors such as smoking, genetic influences, diabetes mellitus, certain medications and family predisposition can play a role in the development and progression of periodontitis. Early detection and treatment of periodontal disease is important.

Diagnosis, therapy and treatment

In close cooperation with other dental disciplines (e.g. endodontology and conservative dentistry), we treat all forms of periodontal and peri-implant (around implants) diseases with a focus on severe and advanced progression.

For this purpose we use the full spectrum of periodontal therapy methods and incorporate the latest research results. If necessary, special consideration is given to the nutritional medicine approach, which is also a research focus of the department.
