In periodontology, in essence, we resort to the treatment of the gums and the bone that supports the teeth.
Periodontal disease is divided into two main categories: gingivitis (the gum disease) and periodontitis.
Gingivitis is exclusively caused by bacterial inflammation of the gums.
In the long run and without treatment, gingivitis leads to severe damage to the soft tissues/gums and bone of the jaws and in the worst case, progresses to tooth loss.
It is extremely important to understand that the effects of periodontal disease do not only affect the oral cavity.
Gingivitis and periodontitis can lead to systemic damage of the general health.
Characteristic and scientifically substantiated is its adverse effect on the cardiovascular system, as well as the increased risk of premature birth during pregnancy.
With the treatment of gingivitis and periodontitis, the proper oral hygiene and the regular dental check-ups can delay the progression of periodontitis or even prevent it.
The most modern means and methods of removing dental plaque and calculus (tartar) are applied in our clinic.
We also apply a proven, effective, modern diagnostic method that is to perform individualized bacterial culture to determine the bacterial load of the mouth.
Our experience and our collaborations with very experienced and worthy periodontists, ensure the desired result, even for the most demanding situations that may arise.
