Periodontology includes periodontitis (gum disease) therapy, regenerative surgery, maintenance therapy, covering bared tooth necks (recession), and periodontal plastic surgery.
Roots of the teeth are cleaned of bacteria and harmful products under local anesthesia. The bacterial formations are so well organized and protected in the biofilm should be taken in a 1000 x stronger dosage concentration in order to be effective! This is the reason why they need to be physically removed.
Pockets are cleaned with a combination of hand and so-called sonic instruments, enabling the surface of the root to remain smooth.
By eliminating deposits, tissue destruction is stopped and the pocket depth is reduced. In shallow pockets, the conditions for bacterial growth are not so good, and result in improved periodontal health.
In our dental clinic, all periodontal surgery interventions are performed using minimally invasive techniques. Postoperative problems are minimized, with optimal results.
Today it is possible to perform a regeneration of bone defects. Periodontal disease is characterized by the deterioration of the supporting tooth bone, which can be uniform, or with craters present. Bone defects in the shape of craters can be regenerated.
After a thorough cleaning of the tooth root, the defect is filled with biologically active substances that boost regeneration of the attached tissue (bone and cement). This kind of surgery has good results only when dealing with certain anatomy defects, and requires more frequent visits immediately before and after the surgery.
With healthy teeth or those affected by periodontal disease, mouth cavity is full of bacteria. Patients that suffer from periodontal diseases have a genetic tendency to an infectious overreaction to bacteria. Even if it were theoretically possible to eliminate all bacteria, very soon a re-colonization would take place, as well as a consequential inflammatory reaction. This means that there is no successful one-time treatment for periodontal disease.
Periodontal disease is a chronic infection that needs to be controlled throughout the life and interventions should be made when necessary.
After placing dental implants for patients with periodontal disease, maintenance therapy is of the utmost importance.
The frequency of control visits depends on the stage of the disease as well as on the patient’s oral hygiene, and is thus determined individually (usually 2-4 times a year)./vc_column_text]
There are several possible causes for bare tooth necks, and for the most part they refer to inadequate brushing techniques.
With cosmetic surgery techniques, bare tooth necks can get covered, solving aesthetic problems, teeth oversensitivity, further advancement of receding gums, and tooth neck caries.
In our clinic we apply cutting-edge, sophisticated techniques of minimally invasive procedures to cover recessions.
In order to establish long term stability of achieved results, we instruct our patients to use appropriate aids and tooth brushing techniques.
Even though the perception of beauty is individual; it changes through culture and time and is subject to fashion, and, especially nowadays, to the influence of media. A wide smile that shows many white teeth and healthy gums is the focal image nowadays.
Red, swollen gums, long, bare tooth necks, jaw defects following tooth loss – all this leads to an unpleasant smile.
Today, most of these imperfections can be removed or reduced with cosmetic gum surgery.
Behind the creation of a beautiful smile is a team. A prosthetist, technician, periodontologist, surgeon and orthodontist equally participate in the planning and treating processes.
