If you notice any disturbing symptoms, you should immediately consult a doctor who will make an accurate diagnosis and prescribe effective treatment.
We believe that the most important thing is to accurately determine the causes of periodontal disease. The main cause is usually dental plaque and stones, but these conditions can be caused by harmful habits, occlusal pathologies or even stress.
Periodontal diseases are treated depending on the degree of damage – surgically or non-surgically. Sometimes professional oral hygiene is sufficient, and in more complex cases you need::
- deep cleaning of gum pockets (curettage);
- periosurgical operations;
- preparations that promote bone regeneration.
Treatment of periodontal disease is a complex process that requires not only the professionalism and experience of the doctor, but also the responsibility of the patient to take care of the hygiene of their oral cavity.
