What is Periodontal Disease?
Any issues related to the gum problems are called periodontal diseases. The mouth is full of bacteria coming with food. When teeth are not cleaned properly, they gather in different hidden cavities and cause inflammations. The best measure for gum problems is prevention. That is why it is necessary to clean teeth twice a day and have a professional cleaning at least once in a half of year. But even being accurate with hygiene, sometimes it is difficult to avoid complications affecting in various disorders.
The symptoms of gingivitis are red and swollen gums, bleeding and discomfort. It is comparatively easy form of periodontal disease and, if treated timely, it does not lead to damage of soft tissues and teeth loosing.
Periodontitis is inflammation of the gums around the teeth. When bacteria are not removed timely they cause appearing spaces that called pockets between the gum and tooth. Those pockets become a permanent source of infections and cause pain, suppuration and, then, the teeth come loosing. If not treated, periodontitis leads to massive teeth lost and degenerative gum changes. For successful treatment of periodontitis different non-surgical and surgical methods are applied in Germany.
Non-surgical Treatment of Periodontitis
To remove periodontal plaques a hygienist or periodontist perform deep cleaning which called scaling. During the treatment, tartar and plaques are mechanically scrapped from a razor between the gum and teeth. Sometimes a laser could be useful for this purpose. As result, the swelling and bleeding are reduced.
Normally, medication also used to reduce the signs of inflammation and to restore the affected gums. Depending on stage and symptoms different various kind of medicine could be use both internally and locally as antiseptic rinse, antibiotic gel, enzyme suppressant and oral antibiotics.

But in advanced cases, surgery is the most effective method for curing of periodontal disease.
Flap or pocket reduction is a basic operation performed by periodontal surgeon with assistance of hygienists. During this operation the pockets are reduced and all the areas around are cleaned. After the procedure healthy gum could tightly fit to the bone again.
When, as result of chronic disease, the bone and gum are badly damaged, the bone or gum graft or, in other words, implant could be required. Performing a surgery of this type a periodontist takes donor tissues from a palate (for gum) or another patient’s own source and transplant it to the affected area. When successfully taken, the tissues regenerate and create healthy environment which with proper cleaning and prevention allows avoiding the relapses in future.
