Periodontology

Some patients may be without any symptoms of periodontal disease until visible damage, gingival retraction, and alveolar bone damage occur. Therefore, regular dental check-ups are necessary.

Periodontology

Millions of people today suffer from periodontal disease (periodontitis). Among the patients affected by this disease are those who regularly maintain oral hygiene. This is a progressive disease for which there is no cure and with its progression can lead to problems and complications such as: bleeding gums, bad breath, loosening and loss of teeth. However, with the use of special instruments, appliances and topical medications, this disease can be stopped and maintained in a single stage of dormancy.

Early signs of gum disease

Almost every periodontal disease begins with inflammation of the gums- gingivitis. Signs of gum disease are red, swollen, and bleeding gums.

As periodontitis progresses, other symptoms appear, such as: loose teeth, gingival retraction, tenderness, loss of alveolar bone, resulting in tooth loss.

Therapy of gum disease

Laser treatment of periodontal pockets that contributes to the destruction of bacteria present in periodontal pockets and further helps to regenerate the tissues affected by this disease.

Topical application of drugs in the pockets themselves, which has been proven to act on pathogenic bacteria present in the pockets. They can be used as topical medications: antibiotic gels and hyaluronic acid. Keep the pictures the same.

In PHI "Dr. Nina", our goal is for patients to receive less painful and effective treatment. Depending on the stage of the disease, the therapy is different.

  • Tartar cleaning
  • Processing of periodontal pockets

The purpose of these methods is to clean the periodontal pockets, to remove tartar and dental plaque, which will make the tooth surfaces smooth and will further reduce the deposition of dental plaque and tartar. 

Laser treatments

A laser is an instrument that produces a very thin, intense beam of light energy. When a laser beam comes in contact with tissue it causes a reaction. The laser beam can remove or shape tissue. Lasers can be used for safe and effective treatment for a wide range of dental procedures and are commonly used in combination with other instruments.
