Periodontology means providing care to the supporting tissues of the tooth, such as bone and gums. When affected, the destruction of these supporting tissues (periodontitis) leads to tooth loosening and mobility, which can result in their loss.
As the disease progresses, a periodontal pocket forms between the gum and the tooth. It quickly accumulates a large quantity of bacteria and tartar, which worsens the irritation of the gum, and prevents its healing. In its most advanced stage, periodontitis causes tooth loss.
Its treatment always requires a close cooperation between the periodontologist, the patient and the dental hygienist in order to optimise healing.
The Geneva dental clinic has a specialist (periodontologist) on staff for these treatments.
After an accurate diagnosis of the stage the periodontal disease is in, the dentist will determine a treatment plan and give an estimate.
Make an appointment as soon as you notice :
- Bleeding when brushing your teeth
- Pain when chewing
- Misalignment of your teeth
- Gum recession
- Pockets (spaces) between the teeth and gums
- Persistent bad breath
- Sores inside your mouth
- Loose or sensitive teeth
The duration of treatment may vary depending on the type of damage.

The cost of a treatment varies according to the number of sessions required. You will be given a precise estimate during your first consultation.
