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.
