Gingivitis, gum and bone loss or loose teeth are very common. By minimally invasive interventions in the context of a periodontal disease treatment, however, these complaints are often quickly and gently to get a grip. Gradually, we help the gums back to freedom from inflammation and regeneration.
How does the treatment of periodontal disease work?
Treatment in the early stages of gum disease involves the removal of adhesions (plaque and calculus) on the teeth and a smooth root surface. This process removes bacteria and irritants that cause inflammation in the gums. Usually, this treatment is enough to re-fit the gums to the tooth or to shrink the gum and remove the bag.
In most early-stage gum disease, daily oral care after removal of plaque, plaque removal, and a smooth root surface will suffice for successful treatment. More advanced cases may require surgical treatment. The purpose of this treatment is to cleanse the calculus in the deep periodontal pockets that surround the teeth, to ensure the bag is removed by shrinkage and a smooth root surface, and to form a lighter gum shape.
After periodontal treatment, the patients should be regularly examined by the dentist, the plaque control and the new tartar removed. But we should not forget that. No procedure is more advantageous than effective daily oral care to obtain the results achieved by the periodontal treatment.
