Prevention is better than cure! For this reason Prof. Troedhan determines your individual periodontal risk, and Mrs. Mirela Kecanovic (Diploma Periodontal Assistant of Prof. Troedhan) then carries out prophylactic treatments individually tailored for you. With her many years of experience and expertise as a DPA, Ms. Kecanovic finds every hidden corner where plaque begins its destructive work and ensures healthy gums. A recurrence of periodontal disease after a successful periodontal treatment can only be prevented with a consistent individual oral hygiene at home and professional accompanying treatment (regular professional oral hygiene sessions). Always remember: Periodontitis is an infectious disease and can recur at any time like any cold.
If the protective barrier to the jawbone has already been
partially broken by chronic gum inflammation (bleeding gum
pockets), inflammatory tissue, bacteria and tartar under the
gums must be removed with ultrasound or laser. This method
is called ultrasound deep scaling. It is used when the gum
pockets are deeper than 4mm and have already dissolved the
jawbone. Of course, this periodontitis treatment (ultrasound
Deep Scaling) is painlessly performed by DPA Mrs. Kecanovic
with the most modern ultrasound equipment. Only in rare
cases and then only for single teeth, periodontal surgery
with jawbone reconstruction is sometimes necessary.
For particularly deep bone pockets, an additional chlorhexidine platelet ("periochip") is inserted, which prevents new infection immediately after treatment.
Since dental implants must have a rough surface for better anchoring in the jawbone, they are even more susceptible to infections with pathogenic bacteria than natural teeth. Implant users should therefore carry out prophylactic treatment (oral hygiene) 3-4 times a year and examine the periodontal condition of the adjacent teeth and have them treated if necessary.
