Most teeth are lost due to diseases of the periodontium (tooth supporting system).  As a result, the diseased  gums form pockets, which can be treated with a periodontal therapy. If the treatment begins in the early stages of the disease, the inflammatory process can be stopped or even reversed.

Frequently asked questions about periodontology

What is a periodontal treatment?

Periodontitis is a serious gum infection that damages the soft tissue and, without treatment, can destroy the bone that supports your teeth caused by bacterial deposits. The resulting gum pockets must be treated as quickly as possible to stop the inflammatory process. Depending on the severity of the disease, there are several therapeutic approaches that are used individually.

Who pays for such treatment?

Generally speaking, health insurance covers most periodontal services, but there certain services that require private payment.

How does periodontitis affect my teeth?

The effects of this disease can be very diverse, from painful swelling and reddening of the gums, gum retraction to tooth loss.

What exactly is done during periodontal treatment?

The diseased and deepened gum pockets are cleaned with various therapies with the aim of stopping the inflammatory process. See under treatment periodontitis.

Does such a treatment hurt?

It is done under anesthesia and is therefore not painful during treatment. There may then be a slight pain after the treatment.

What should I do before the treatment?

No special preparation is required.
