What is the periodontal status?
At the beginning of a therapy, initial findings such as bleeding, plaque index, pocket depth and mobility of the tooth are recorded. This investigation, in which the findings are collected, is called periodontal status. The findings should reach a certain value at the end of the periodontal therapy. This ensures that the inflammatory bone loss is stopped.
What is periodontitis?
Periodontitis in the vernacular (periodontal disease) is a disease of the periodontium (gum). An inflammation caused by the bacteria in plaque, leads to bone being lost: the result is receding gums. Periodontal disease is a slow-moving disease characterized by bleeding gums, bad breath, gum recession and gingival swelling.
