A periodontal treatment is not a standard therapy, but always an individually tailored treatment plan in several stages - depending on the severity of periodontal disease and other factors. It is necessary in order to minimize the risk of tooth loss and thus to preserve one's own teeth or - in the case of very problematic cases - at least extend the life span.
If periodontitis is suspected, a so-called pre-treatment is performed. This calculus, soft deposits and other irritants removed and the patient receives instructions for proper oral hygiene.
If the pretreatment proves that the patient has periodontitis requiring treatment, the dentist will make X-rays of all teeth and make an individualized treatment plan. In the next step, the patient submits the findings together with the treatment plan to his health insurance. If this is approved, then the main treatment starts in several stages.
After completing the treatment, regular follow-up examinations are important and necessary because many patients tend to develop gingivitis after therapy. The follow-up also controls the patient's cooperation. If necessary, plastering techniques can be discussed and the patient motivated to take care of them regularly. At the same time, the appointments give the dentist the opportunity to repeat local measures (for example removal of the hard and soft coverings) on individual periodontal ligaments.
The success of periodontal treatment depends on several factors. How quickly and effectively the therapy strikes is due to the severity of periodontitis, the condition of the dental bed, the jawbone and the teeth as well as the number and type of disease-causing germs and bacteria. A prerequisite for the success of any systematic treatment is the cooperation of the patient. These include a careful and correct oral care as well as regular toothbrush massage of the gums as well as an increased nutritional awareness and the right chewing behavior.
