PARODONTOLOGY IN BERLIN: STRONGHOLD FOR YOUR TEETH
PARODONTITIS (also generally known as PARODONTOSIS by the public) is a disease of the dentition. The entire tooth holding apparatus is affected, namely, both gum and jaw bone.
Periodontal disease can occur when plaques are placed on the surface of the tooth, the gingival margin, and the interdental spaces for an extended period. The most common of these are plaque, which accumulates in the gingival pockets. This results in the development of TARTAR, a mineralized and hard form of plaque. As a result, the gingiva can ignite and swell. The color changes from a healthy pale pink to dark red. If the inflammation affects the jaw bone, it is referred to as periodontal disease. The causes usually lie in misunderstood or deficient oral hygiene as well as nicotine. Through the periodontics at T7 in Berlin, we can recognize, treat and stop this creeping INFLAMMATION PROCESS in time.
WARNING SIGNS OF A PARODONTITIS
Many people are initially not aware that the cause of their complaints may be a periodontal disease. It begins harmlessly with reddened or swollen gums; Later, occasional GUMS BLEED is added, but this is often not felt as painful. At the latest when the gums are inflamed and visible, it is high time for a treatment. At this stage, the teeth may already have loosened.
Within the framework of the periodontics at T7 in Berlin, we begin a thorough investigation with the therapy. First, the oral cavity must be cleansed and plaque removed. Afterward, we clean and smoothen the surfaces of the tooth roots, so that the formation of deposits is made more difficult and the gums can regenerate. We also remove plaque below the gingival edges. The GERM DISINFECTION is additionally performed with a laser to kill the bacteria as extensively as possible. We remove the infected tissue from the gingival pockets and then clean it. In particularly severe cases, we also perform periodontal surgery (open curettage) in order to get as far as possible to the root surfaces to be cleaned. In special applications, a chip (Perio-Chip) impregnated with an antiseptic solution can be inserted into the gingival pockets.
EFFECTS OF A PARODONTITIS
PARODONTITIS can be creepy and can remain unnoticed for months and years. It becomes particularly dangerous if the bacterial pathogens spread over the blood circulation in the body and thus significantly increase the risk of myocardial infarction, stroke, and diabetes. If a patient does not reach the dentist in time, teeth can often not be saved.
Using simple measures, PARODONTITIS can be prevented: regular monitoring by the dentist and PROFESSIONAL DENTAL CLEANING (at least every six months) are prophylaxis measures which can effectively prevent periodontal disease. A properly performed oral hygiene helps to do so, so problems with the gum and the teeth holding device do not occur.The periodontics at T7 in Berlin is your partner for prevention and treatment.
