We are continuously improving and striving to increase the treatment standards of our clinic. Consequently we have recently added a new procedure for cleaning in order to prevent periodontal disease.
Periodontal disease is constantly developing in our society affecting approximately 80% of our adult population. Significant increase in understanding this condition was shown in recent years. Periodontal disease is a bacterial infection of the soft tissue / periodontal pockets surrounding the teeth. Currently periodontal treatments are not only relying on the removal of diseased tissue and curettage but target the periodontal infection that caused the suffering.
To reduce or eliminate bacteria.
To prevent cross-contamination from one mouth to another area.
To reduce the bacteria that causes periodontal diseases
During the regular cleaning process some areas subjected to the treatment may bleed, this may create an entry portal trough which bacteria form our mouth will enter the bloodstream and to populate the weak areas of our body as damaged valves or artificial hip and knee joints. We administer antibiotic treatment to all the patients that have these conditions prior to the procedure to prevent damage from bacteria
Research shows that pathogens residing in our mouth are closely linked to many diseases and conditions such as cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, low weight gain in newborns, diabetes etc.
We know that in dentistry, fear of pain is one of the biggest fears of the patient. Just to get away or decrease pain existence, we added a new procedure in our clinic: laser pain therapy.
If you experience pain in the TMJ you can benefit from the effects of laser therapy.
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects your jaw to the side of your head. Pain is common to this area and it presents common signs and symptoms like:
The laser device temporarily heats the targeted tissue and increases the blood flow to the muscles so that they can relax.
Dental laser treatment (laser therapy) is easy to apply –the procedure increases the temperature in the treated area and thus relieves temporary medium and light pain.
Laser therapy is fast – a standard procedure takes 10 minutes per treatment area and requires on average 2-6 sessions with an interval of 2-4 days, sometimes even fewer sessions are required for optimum results.
Laser pain therapy is safe – This procedure is a gentle maneuver that relaxes muscles and removes the pain.
