Periodontitis treatment course

First, a swab is taken from the area of the bone defect, which is sent to a laboratory in Germany. The waiting time for the result is approximately one week. Based on the result, an antibiotic is selected individually for the bacteria causing the bone defect in the patient.

Then, after the inflamed tissue has been removed and the bone pocket cleaned, the dentist fills the resulting bone defect with bone substitute, which will provide your bone with optimal growth conditions. Within a few months, new bone of your own will have formed, resulting in the stabilisation of your own tooth.

How does periodontitis develop?

Periodontitis (periodontitis) develops due to plaque and tartar bacteria.

These bacteria can enter the pockets of the teeth, i.e. between the tooth and the gingival margin.

Pathological pockets are then formed. The microorganisms operating in their area contribute to alveolar bone atrophy and, consequently, tooth loosening. The first sign of periodontitis is exposure of the tooth necks and gingivitis.

The functioning of the immune system and the patient’s genetic factors play a major role in the development of the disease.

In order to prevent, as well as inhibit, the mild course of periodontitis, it is necessary to maintain impeccable oral hygiene and systematically remove tartar at the dentist.

In the advanced stage, the disease is treated by curettage, i.e. the cleaning of the root and the use of bone substitutes to replace cavities in this area.

To prevent and stop the mild course of periodontitis, you should maintain impeccable oral hygiene and systematically remove tartar at the dentist.

In the advanced stage, the disease is treated by curettage, i.e. cleaning the root and using bone substitutes to fill the gaps in this area.

If you observe symptoms indicating the development of periodontitis, please consult your dentist as soon as possible.
