PERIODONTOLOGY – TREATMENT OF THE PERIODONTIUM (SUPPORTING STRUCTURES OF TEETH) DISEASES

Periodontology specialises in diagnosis and treatment of the periodontium and oral mucosa diseases. Periodontitis is the most common reason for premature teeth loss. Our centre specialises in treatment of very advanced periodontium diseases: whenever possible, we save teeth which were deemed to be removed.

Periodontal therapy consists of three phases:

  • hygienisation i.e. couching in dental hygiene, scaling around and below the gum line, root surfaces polishing, sandblasting, fluoride varnish, rinses, anti-inflammatory drugs, tooth decay treatment, endodontics, repairing defective prosthetic fillings, temporary prosthetic treatment, malocclusion treatment.
  • corrective – permanent prosthetic treatment, surgical procedures.
  • maintenance – dental check-ups, procedures aimed at preventing recurrence of the disease.
