Timely Realization of Signals is Crucial for Successful Treatment
Periodontosis is the most common disease besides caries in oral cavity. Our practice in the city centre of Düsseldorf offers cutting edge treatment concepts for various stages of periodontosis. Dr. Meyer is member of German Association for periodontics as well as founding member of Paroexcellence, an association for dental education.
Similar to many dental problems, bacterial plaque is the reason for gingival diseases. Regular gingival bleeding indicates the normal infection defense to be overburdened. A consequence is inflammation of gingival margins (gingivitis).
In order to prevent gingival bleeding from turning into periodontosis, level of plaque needs to be reduced to a minimal - Professional dental cleaning and optimized oral hygiene are crucial precautionary measures for dental health.
If bacteria penetrate gingival crest, they destroy tooth-holding tissues. Thereby, small niches emerge between teeth and gum so that germs promote bone inflammation and can lead to tooth loss even if teeth were initially healthy.
The first step of the treatment is initial examination trough X-ray for illustrating bone lines and detailed documentation of exploratory values of gingival pockets as well as tooth mobility. Preparatory treatment is professional cleaning. While local anaesthesia, periodontal treatment is performed. Thereby, plaque is removed from underneath the gum and dental surfaces are smoothed. In addition, dental pockets are rinsed with anti-inflammatory solution (full mouth disinfection). Close follow up treatment ensure quick healing process and prevent further inflammation of tissues.
Some cases require surgical intervention after repeated controls, in order to remove calculus and bacteria in root junctions (furcations). In case of bigger bone loss, regenerative approaches enable partial recuperation of the bone defect.
Our prophylaxis team members dictate the diagnosed data directly into the computer system via voice control.
FMD is the short form of Full-Mouth-Desinfection, where teeth are rinsed with and anti-inflammatory solution. This form of therapy has only recently evolved and has been scientifically approved.
A paper probe is inserted in an inflamed pocket and then sent to laboratories to identify germ. The result names the germs and recommends specific antibiotics.
FMT is a short cut for Full-Mouth-Therapy and contains systematic intaking of antibiotics in addition to FMD.
UTP means Supporting Periodontitistherapy (Unterstützende Paradontitistherapie) and constitutes follow up care or prophylaxis recall following a systematic periodontal treatment.
Reevaluation is the repeated examination for assessing the success of the treatment.
Several studies proof bacteria to be co-responsible for heart cardiac diseases meaning that patients with periodontal inflammations have a higher risk for cardiovascular diseases. In case of diabetes in combination with periodontosis, balancing blood glucose readings can be aggravated. Furthermore, periodontosis is connected with an increased risk of premature birth and low weight of new born babies.
In absence of treatment of periodontosis, probabilities of heart diseases, diabetes and high-risk pregnancies rise.
Smoking is a significant risk factor for periodontosis as progression of disease is aggravated.
