PARIODONTOLOGY

Keeping tooth supporting structures healthy

The supporting structures of the tooth include: the gum, parts of the roots and tooth pockets. Dangers for this healthy supporting structure are:

  • Poor or insufficient mouth hygiene
  • Poor diet
  • Smoking

This creates plaque. The bacteria in plaque not only cause caries, but also weaken the gingival cuff and can lead to an inflammation of the tooth pockets (paradontitis). The root becomes loose.

Paradontology is the basis of dentistry.

Prophylaxis with the help of preventive actions beneficial  to your health is vital. Our prophylaxis team supports you with professional dental hygiene and individual tips on oral hygiene.

- If first signs of paradontitis are already visible, it can be treated effectively with a laser, for example:


Laser Treatment

Soft Tissue Laser

Laser herapy helps in the treatment of gum diseases (inflammation of the tooth pocket, swelling) and pain.

Hard Tissue Laser

High performance lasers are used in dental surgery (extraction, after-treatment) root canal treatment, sensitive tooth necks and bleaching.

The laser's effect is based on a number of elements:

  • Analgesic effect: local pain killing
  • Anti-inflammatory effect
  • Biostimulant effect: stimulating tissue metabolism
