Help with gum problems

Are your gums red and slightly swollen? Do you frequently spit blood after brushing your teeth? Then you most likely have gingivitis. Gingivitis is an inflammation of the gums caused by bacteria and plaque that lodge between the tooth and gum. Superficial gingivitis can be removed by professional cleaning at the dentist – e.g. by thoroughly cleaning periodontal pockets and interdental spaces. Patients who regularly come for professional cleaning can avoid any such gum inflammation.

Using lasers to fight periodontitis

If, however, your gum inflammation is more advanced, the gum and even the jaw bone may recede. This is periodontitis. Left untreated, periodontitis leads to an unstable periodontium, causing teeth to start wobbling and even fall out. It is therefore important to start periodontal treatment as soon as possible. The destructive bacteria will be completely removed to allow the oral flora to regenerate. The Stuttgart dental practice uses laser technology when treating periodontal disease. This method is not only extremely effective; it’s also extremel gentle. The laser is able to fully clean even deep periodontal pockets, preventing the gums from being exposed to further bacterial attacks, and enabling them to recover without disruption. In most cases, follow-up care doesn’t even involve antibiotics.

Post-periodontitis bone reconstruction

In some cases of extremely advanced periodontitis, the jaw bone may already have receded. This necessitates bone reconstruction after successful periodontitis treatment to ensure the teeth are properly supported again. Our bone reconstruction treatments also offer patients gentle and lasting care – because we want you to be able to bite into things, worry-free, as soon as possible.
