Periodontology

Periodontal diseases are inflammatory conditions affecting the specialized soft and hard tissue surrounding and supporting natural teeth, also known as the periodontium (peri = around, odontos = tooth) or the ‘attachment apparatus’. Periodontal diseases have an infectious etiology. In addition to determining a correct periodontal diagnosis, it is crucial to identify and assess individual risk factors, e.g., diabetes or tobacco smoking, to determine the patient’s suitability for various treatment concepts. Patients with well-controlled diabetes respond similarly to periodontal therapy as non-diabetic controls.

Periodontal treatment

Information and motivation of the patient — including oral hygiene instructions and education on individual risk factors — are the first steps in the treatment of periodontal diseases. Since optimal plaque control and the adequate management of risk factors are essential to achieve and maintain periodontal health, informed patients who are compliant with the treatment and necessary lifestyle changes have a considerably higher chance of a successful therapeutical outcome.

If possible, we use the least invasive and most cost-effective treatment concept. Hand instruments, i.e., specially designed curets are used to remove plaque, calculus, and other debris from the crown and root surfaces. This is supported by debridement using sonic or ultrasonic instruments. After debridement, the teeth are polished to hinder the development of plaque on the tooth surfaces. This is done with polishing pastes with varying grades of abrasiveness.

Managing risk factors

Due to the multifactorial nature of periodontal diseases, identifying, evaluating and successfully managing individual risk factors are essential to successful therapy. These risk factors include, among other conditions, tobacco use, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and osteoporosis. Developing strategies to target these risk factors – e.g., tobacco cessation, adequate diabetes control – are integral to the success of periodontal therapy.

Supportive care

Post-treatment supportive care or periodontal maintenance is a fundamental part of periodontal therapy. After completion of the active treatment phase, patients should be periodically controlled during recall visits, the frequency of which should be determined according to individual risk factors. Patients who regularly take part in maintenance programs exhibit better periodontal health than patients who only take part in the active therapy phase and neglect periodontal maintenance.
