The foundation of a healthy tooth is a healthy periodontium, the tissues around a tooth. The gum pockets surrounding the teeth are wonderful entry ports for all sorts of germs and pathogens. The permanent colonization of the pockets can lead to inflammation of the periodontium, to bone loss and ultimately to tooth loss. In addition, the pathogens can be distributed in the body to contribute to diseases.
It is therefore important to detect and treat periodontitis at an early stage. Continuous monitoring, possible follow-up treatments and your help should then cement the freedom from inflammation in order to keep your teeth healthy and well anchored.
