Periodontology: Periodontal disease and other related disorders.
Periodontology deals with diseases of the periodontium (gums) and in particular the prevention of such diseases. Next to tooth decay, periodontal disease is the most common disease in the oral cavity, and the main cause of tooth loss in the over 35s. Approximately 80% of the population is affected by periodontal disease. The consequences are bleeding gums, bad breath, loosening of the teeth and ultimately tooth loss. Periodontal disease germs can also be the cause of general medical diseases such as heart disease, arteriosclerosis and even premature births. An individual prophylaxis (dental hygiene) programme ensures the success of treatment and prevents the recurrence of periodontal disease. Arrange an Z with us today.
