In general, a periodontal disease is pain-free and therefore often realized belatedly. Signs for a disease can be bleeding gums while brushing your teeth, pus and secretion from the gingival pockets or loose or badly aligned teeth. If the dentist discovers a periodontitis, it can be treated with a professional teeth cleaning but also with surgical interventions. Furthermore, mouth rinses and the use of local and/or systemic antibiotics are used.
The principal objective of the treatment is the reduction of the bacteria amount and the removal of the inflammation stimulus. Because of its chronical character, the periodontitis requires a regular aftercare.
