Periodontitis is a disease of the gum and periodontal tissues that manifests itself through gum inflammation and infection, bleeding gums, gum recession, periodontal pockets, and in severe cases, dental mobility, destruction of the bone to which the teeth are attached and even leading to tooth loss..
Gums represent the most sensitive and easy to destroy element of the oral cavity.
Gum inflammation (gingivitis) and bleeding gums are the first step of periodontal disease, which causes dental mobility.
Healthy gums have a pink color and are tightly attached to the teeth, and do not bleed when we brush our teeth. The first sign of gum disease are bleeding gums. In time, the gums become red and sensitive. After that, gum pockets appear in which bacteria collect and which are not accessible to brushing. The resulting infection will lead to the destruction of the bone in which the teeth are implanted.
All these lead to dental mobility, and in time to the loss of the teeth.
Until recently it was considered that periodontitis cannot be treated, only slowed down. The classical treatment for periodontitis is invasive and includes surgery, bone grafts, or strong medication. Even so, the results are not satisfying.
A team of doctors from our dental clinic tried a new non-invasive approach based on recent studies about cellular regeneration (autologous mesenchymal cells). The results were amazing, as they found out that a controlled electromagnetic field can "guide" those regenerative cells into the affected areas. This is how the electromagnetic periodontal tissue regenerative technique (Electronic Doctor) was created and, ever since, it was successfully used in our clinic, and in our partners' clinics, saving the natural teeth of many happy patients.
The Electronic Doctor periodontitis treatment is performed in 4 steps:
- Profesional teeth scaling
- Digital Management of Occlusion (eliminating any imperfect occlusal contacts)
- Electromagnetic Tissue Regeneration
» Electronic Doctor - periodontal tissue regeneration
This new and unique method of treatment helps treat periodontal and gum diseases, but can also be used in preventing those illnesses. It stimulates an infinite reservoir of regeneration, the body's own cells. They are attracted to the damaged area through a physical mechanism that does not require the contact of foreign substances with the gum tissue. A digital device that generates controlled electromagnetic waves (Electronic Doctor) is placed near the affected teeth, triggering a regenerative response in that particular area. The technique has 4 main advantages:
- there is no risk of adverse effects
- no surgery required
- no pain - the patient can watch TV or use the internet in our clinic while this treatment is performed
- it uses the body’s own regeneration cells that are practically infinite in number and don’t cost anything
» Occlusal analysis with BiteForce Dynamics
According to modern dentistry, dental occlusion represents the relation between the upper and lower teeth when they are in functional contact, for example during mastication. The way the horizontal (occlusal) surfaces of the teeth come in contact affects the health of the teeth, the periodontal tissues, the muscles of mastication, and the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). When pathological dental contacts are present, all these structures are affected and can lead to many complications, like dental mobility, bleeding gums, gum recession, etc.
Usually, the medic identifies the imperfect dental contacts by using "articulating paper". However, this method can show only those contacts that appear while the teeth are in repose, not in dynamic.
The T- Scan System uses state of the art technology that allows the electronic detection of the pathological dental contacts in both repose and dynamic. In addition, it shows the forces that arise during the bite on every single tooth, forces that can't be identified by the "articulation paper". Studies demonstrated that the efficiency of the T- Scan measurements is over 90%.
After the pathological dental contacts are identified, they are easily removed through polishing.
