Periodontology at the dentist in Munich – gum disease has no chance

The key things to know about periodontology, periodontitis and gingivitis

What are periodontitis and gingivitis?

Periodontitis is a form of gum disease that, like gingivitis, indicates disease in the gums or periodontium. These can go a long time without showing symptoms, or may be manifest in bleeding gums, bad breath or receding gums. The risks include potential bone loss and associated loosening of the tooth. Periodontitis and gingivitis can be caused by inflammation or by functional or age-related causes. At Dr. Butz and Partners, we regularly check for gum disease and carry out prophylaxis treatments. Most cases of gingivitis and the beginnings of periodontitis can be treated effectively with our prophylaxis treatments.

What is deep scaling?

In cases of deep-seated inflammation that cannot be remedied by prophylaxis, deeper periodontal treatment may be necessary. ‘Deep scaling’, which is carried out by our specially certified staff, involves cleaning the tooth roots in existing gum pockets. This allows inflammation to heal and even loose teeth can become anchored more firmly.

Which forms of treatment can be considered?

Whether you are experiencing inflammation or the periodontitis or gingivitis is due to functional or age-related causes, your treatment at Dr. Butz and Partners will be gentle and painless. If required, we offer a laboratory test for periodontitis bacteria to create a personalised antibacterial treatment for your needs.

Gum diseases (gingivitis, periodontitis) can be indicated by gum bleeding, bad breath and gum recession. Periodontitis, meaning an inflammation of the periodontium, can sometimes be detected late because there are often no symptoms over a long period. The dentists and specialised staff at Dr. Butz and Partner in Munich check this routinely to protect you from bone loss and the loss of teeth that comes along with it. This is why regular check-ups and prophylaxis are an essential component of our practice concept. We get to the bottom of periodontitis! 90% of all cases of gingivitis and early periodontitis can already be eliminated through normal precautionary measures at our dental practice in Munich. The dentists and skilled staff at Dr. Butz and Partner show you the problem areas in detail and help you chose the right care products.
