Gingivitis / Periodontitis

A good way to keep a healthy dental hygiene is always to brush your teeth with toothpaste and to clean the interdental spaces with dental floss at least twice a day. However, this may not always be sufficient or it is not always properly done, which will increase any risk of developing periodontitis.

At our dental clinic TandCity you may get a thorough and professional cleaning adapted to your individual needs.
Some people are more exposed to the risk of getting mouth diseases than others, e.g. diabetics and smokers. Our main aim is always to provide the exact treatment needed for the individual. If desired, the treatment recommended can be made with a sedative.

A regular professional dental hygienist treatment consists of :

  • A clinic control and information, incl a short periodontal check.
  • Aesthetic cleaning
  • Deep cleaning if required
  • Polish
  • Oral hygiene instructions and advice for a correct dental care
  • If needed, recommendation of specific products

What is actually Periodontitis?

The early stage of gum disease, also called gingivitis, is an inflammation of the gum tissue, caused by bacteria in the gum. The most common sign of the inflammation is that the gums bleed easily, when you brush your teeth or use dental floss. 
If the inflammation spreads deeper into the tissue, it can cause bone loss and potential tooth loss. If not treated, whole teeth can be lost.
 
Usually Periodontitis is caused by unsufficient oral hygiene, but it can also be caused by other factors, such as e.g. smoking, genetics, specific bacteria and diabetes. 
If you want to avoid or prevent the risk of getting periodontitis, it is essential that you maintain a good oral hygiene, visit the dentist regularly and if possible stop smoking.
 
With a professional dental cleaning, you will not only save time and money. You will also get a healthy beautiful smile.
