Dental Hygienist Treatment
Periodontitis is an inflammatory disease that primarily affects the tissues surrounding the teeth and makes your teeth mobile and eventually you can loose them.

The following signs may indicate the beginning of a periodontal disease: (Note that periodontal disease does not always produce symptoms.)
Tartar, poor oral hygiene, smoking, stress, hereditary factors and some diseases are all factors that may cause an accelerated progress
Tartar – a threat
Plaque is a layer of bacteria and food particles that constantly is forming in your mouth. With a proper cleaning the plaque is removed. Remaining plaque together with the saliva forms tartar, (calcification) In order to remove tartar you need a dentist or dental hygienist. Old plaque and tartar can spread between the gum and the tooth top. Tartar can also exceed underneath the gum.
How to treat periodontitis
You can do a major part of the treatment at home just by keeping a good oral hygiene. In addition, we recommend regularly visits with our hygienist Aurora for deeper cleanings.
