Surgical phase

The aim of the oral hygiene phase is to reduce the number of bacteria in the mouth and therefore reduce the level of inflammation.

The dentist or the dental higienist will first explain the causes of your periodontitis and explain exactly how to keep your teeth and gums clean. You will be given individual advice on how to use the various cleaning aids most effectively; for instance, the most appropriate tooth brushing technique or the correct use of dental floss/interdental brushes.

The frequency of your follow-up appointments will depend on the severity of the disease and your individual risk of disease progression. Usually, follow-up visits are scheduled for every three to six months.

The main goals of the recall system are:

  • Monitoring the state of systemic and oral health
  • Remotivation to oral hygiene at home
  • The removal of plaque, tartar and pigments to get "healthy pink" gum and teeth "clean and white."

Periodontal inflammation is not inevitable. The development of gingivitis and periodontitis can be prevented by adopting thorough oral hygiene habits, alongside regular professional examinations and support.
