Periodontal disease can be treated without a scalpel and sutures
The treatment of periodontal disease always begins with the classical cleaning of calculus (tartar) which is performed by the oral hygienist in our practice..
In the advanced form of periodontal disease complete elimination of calculus on parts of the roots that are hard to approach is sometimes not possible with classical methods. The disease persists around teeth like this. For parts that are hard to approach and highly infected a laser procedure is needed. In this case our oral hygienist refers you to the dentist Melita Franko, dr. dent. med., who uses a combination of two lasers (Nd:YAG in Er:YAG).
|THE METHOD OF TREATMENT IN OUR PRACTICE
||THE TREATMENT IS PERFORMED BY
|Calculus (tartar) (zobni kamen) above and under the gum
||Ultrasonic calculus cleaning
|Calculus under the gum, on the root surfaces
||Hand scaling and planing the roots with instruments designed for individual teeth
|Advanced periodontal disease- periodontal pockets (4 mm to 5 mm deep), that couldn’t be eliminated by previous visits to the oral hygienist
||Laser treatment in which we use the soft tissue laser (Nd:YAG) and the soft and hard tissue laser (Er:YAG)
|Severely advanced periodontal disease- periodontal pockets (more than 6 mm deep)
