Periodontitis refers to the inflammation of the periodontium, in other words the tissues in which the tooth is embedded. This inflammation is caused by plaque and the germs living in it. This leads to the destruction of the gums and of the bone. In extreme cases it can lead to loss of teeth.


Bleeding and slight swelling of the gums are the first warning signs of periodontitis. This underlines the importance of dental check-ups and regular professional cleaning and measuring pocket depth.


In periodontology too, we use effective and gentle methods of treatment, in which as a rule no anaesthesia is required.


In particularly difficult cases of periodontitis we employ individual germ identification. If necessary, special drug treatment is prescribed for the patient.
