It is possible to cure periodontitis?
Periodontitis can be treated, but it can not be cured. If a patient is diagnosed with periodontitis, the state can be stabilized and improved by treatment. This treatment consists in removal of tartar, which is settled on the surface of root below the gum and subsequent slicking the surface of root.
With consideration to the expected sensitivity is this procedure performed in local anaesthesia. After the phase removal of tartar comes another equally important part and that is to maintain faultless home hygiene. In this phase of disease every patient should understand, that without taking responsibility for state and without active cooperation with dental hygienist/dentist in the form of home care about teeth and compliance check examinations, is any improvement of state impossible.
