Periodontology

Periodontology is a branch of dentistry, which deals with the treatment of the periodontal diseases. Until recently, periodontitis was considered to be an incurable disease and by accepting this definition we have accepted the fact that the affected will suffer from a relatively quick tooth loss. New treatments have enabled us to achieve excellent results such as stabilising the teeth and curing one's gums (gingiva). No matter which type of treatment is needed (either surgical or nonsurgical treatment) the key element of a successful treatment is time and an in- time visit to the dentist's, so that the type of the periodontal disease could be determined, periodontal status could be assessed and the dentist would be able to decide on a suitable treatment.

The methods for fighting against periodontal diseases:

  • teaching patients about oral hygiene;
  • conservative dentistry treatments of removing
    tartar and soft food deposits by using the
    ultrasonic dental cleaner;
  • surgical procedures for improving gingival aesthetics;
  • conservative dentistry treatments and surgical
    procedures for the diseased gums.

In our office we use the ultrasonic dental cleaner to remove the supragingival and the subgingival tartar as well as the soft food deposits during a completely painless treatment. To achieve a higher level of dental cleaning, we use the Air-Flow method, during which we use a special dental sandblasting material.

Gingivitis is an inflammation of the gums. If diagnosed in time and properly treated, the symptoms of gingivitis can disappear, so that the progression of the disease is stopped. Untreated gingivitis and bacterial invasion of the periodontal ligament, which attaches a tooth to the bone, precede periodontitis.  

If you decide to attend the individual treatment- education on how to brush your teeth and how to use an interdental brush, the knowledge you will gain will contribute to the long term quality of preserving healthy teeth and conducting good oral hygiene. The interdental brush is used to remove plaque from between your teeth. The most common place for caries to form is just below the contact point. We want to inform our patients that it is possible to preserve healthy teeth as well as to preserve periodontium health and that it is possible to treat many of the pre-existing teeth and periodontal diseases.
