Periodontitis is bacterial inflammation of the gum and jawbone (periodontium). It is the most widespread infectious disease worldwide. Bleeding gums, pockets in the gum and bone, reddened gums, bad breath and tooth loosening can be signs of it.
The main causes of periodontitis are overstressing the teeth, smoking, poor oral hygiene and hereditary factors.
Bacterial infections of the periodontium can increase the risk of heart attack and stroke many times over and lead to tooth loss. Because of the sometimes wide-reaching effects of this disease, we look very closely for the first signs of periodontitis at every check-up.
Thanks to our years of experience, the latest Lasertechnik and innovative methods (Vektor®) for removing the bacterial biofilm in gum and bone pockets, we are able to treat periodontitis gently, painlessly and effectively.
Regular check-ups and professional tooth cleaning also help to protect your health and the health of your teeth.
