Periodontics is the part of dentistry that deals with the treatment of the inflammation of the dental apparatus which consists of an alveolar bone, a periodontium and a gum. Periodontitis is one of the most common diseases in dentistry. Apart from genetic predisposition, the main causes of the periodontal disease are smoking and poor hygiene.
Regular prophylactic examinations, assisting in the maintenance of a proper oral hygiene and providing instructions for self-care are the best ways of prevention.
Treatment of periodontal disease
In our clinic we perform a basic preventive examination, which includes the periodontal status. If the diagnosis is periodontal disease, the treatment starts with a professional ultrasound cleaning of all the coarse pockets. In more advanced stages of the disease, this is combined with the use of a diode laser. There are 3 sessions as a standard, but their number may vary depending on the severity of the case. Laser periodontal treatment guarantees the stabilization of the decayed teeth and the prolongation of the periodontal life.
