It is not only teeth that we pay attention to, but also the parodontium – a group of tissues that connect the teeth and the alveolar bone of the jaw. Whenever there is an inflammation due to bacterial infection, there is periodontitis. This chronic inflammation is caused by bacteria living in dental plaque; this bacterium settles on root surfaces and wonders in the direction of the root apex. The consequences are loosening of a tooth or a gingival pocket on the gums.
This treatment is performed under anaesthetic. In the process the root surface, which lies underneath the gums, is being thoroughly cleaned. The procedure is repeated on every damaged tooth in the upper and lower jaws.
Please do not hesitate to contact our friendly team for an advice concerning periodontitis treatment at the dental practice of Dr. Kogan.
