Our dental clinics treat all pathologies related to the oral cavity, with a particular focus set on non-surgical and non-invasive treatments of periodontal disease, more commonly known as pyorrhoea.

Periodontitis is a bacterial infection that damages the tissues supporting the teeth: bones, periodontal ligaments, root cementum and gums. Our therapy is based on the proven efficacy of laser technology in treating periodontitis. Without adequate treatment, periodontitis causes the progressive destruction of the connection between roots and the alveolar bones, causing the reabsorption of the latter. In its most advanced stages, this inflammatory process leads to tooth loss.

laser-treatment-periodontitisThe first stage of periodontitis is gingivitis, an inflammatory process that manifests itself with redness, swelling and bleeding of the gums. Gingivitis is an oral pathology that is often underestimated and, therefore, not adequately treated. Such carelessness in treating gum-related problems leads to the development of periodontitis. The signs that accompany the disease are:

  • gum recession (gums recede, exposing dental roots);
  • persistent halitosis;
  • sensitivity to hot and cold;
  • dental mobility and movement.

Molecular biology helps us to both prevent periodontitis and design bespoke treatments, aimed at curing the disease.

By combining biological diagnostics to the employment of the operating microscope and laser technology, we can cure periodontitis and its relapses, maintain highly compromised teeth functional and avoid having to resort to dental implants.

Recent studies have supported the hypothesis that bacteria associated to periodontal disease and which then enters the bloodstream, can cause a persistent bacteraemia, taking on both a direct and indirect role in multiple other systemic pathologies, in particular cardiovascular disorders (heart attacks and strokes), diabetes, lung diseases, complications related to pregnancies and osteoporosis.
