Periodontal (Gum) Disease
You have probably been told, or believe, that you have a periodontal or gum disorder requiring specialized periodontal treatment to preserve existing teeth, or are already missing some teeth and are interested in dental implants to restore both proper chewing and speaking capabilities and an aesthetic smile through these fixed and non-removable tooth replacements.
What is a periodontist? A periodontist is a dentist who has taken at least two years of advanced training, after dental school, to learn about health, disease, and treatment of bone and bone tissues. In general, this specialty also involves preventive dentistry, dental implants, occlusal treatment, and minor orthodontics.
We hope this web site will help you understand our treatment procedures and what you can expect from treatment.
We believe that retaining your natural teeth is very important. The preservation of you natural, healthy smile and your ability to chew comfortably and efficiently through periodontal treatment or, if need be, through the help of dental implants, are the primary goals of your treatment.
We will be happy to discuss any questions you may have regarding your dental related problems, so please ask. As you proceed through the treatment stages, we will do our best to explain each step in simple terms so you will understand your treatment situation.
Our team includes a periodontist, who has received two years of specialty training in Periodontics and Implantology in the USA. Through the latest technology (intraoral cameras, computer-aided radiographs, microbiological tests, tests for inflammation enzyme markers etc.) we are able to provide very advanced diagnosis and therapy.
Periodontal (Gum) Disease Düsseldorf
Periodontal diseases are ongoing infections of the gums that gradually destroy the support of your natural teeth. Periodontal disease affects one or more of the periodontal tissues: alveolar bone, periodontal ligament, cementum, or gingiva. While there are many diseases which affect the tooth-supporting structures, plaque-induced inflammatory lesions make up the majority of periodontal issues, and are divided into two categories: gingivitis and periodontitis. While gingivitis, the less serious of the diseases, may never progress into periodontitis, it always precedes periodontitis.

If you lose one or more teeth due to periodontal disease, or another cause, there is hope. Dental implants are changing the way people live! They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. Patients with dental implants can smile with confidence.
To help keep your mouth all your life in optimal health, comfort, function and aesthetics through the most up-to-date periodontal treatment modalities and, if necessary, through implant dentistry. Using special dental implants we can now treat patients missing some teeth, or all teeth, to restore aesthetics, chewing and speaking abilities, and the confidence and self-esteem necessary for daily life.
Through all stages of your treatment we will try to fully explain our procedures and we invite your questions. We will tech you various ways in which you can improve your oral health at home, and we will expect you to do your best to maintain these practices.
