The periodontium is made up of:

  • Alveolar bone
  • Periodontal ligament
  • Cementum
  • Gingiva

Basically the periodontium is made up of all the tissues that may be found around the teeth and that are necessary to hold them up, i.e. keep them attached to the bone. This preserves integrity during chewing.

The term pyorrhea is a compound word (pios or pus and erea or flowing) that refers to a disease of the periodontium: In particular to the final moment in the life of the tooth affected by periodontal disease. With pyorrhea, we have an abundant seepage of pus and blood from the afflicted tooth, which is serious in any case and in the final phase of the disease the tooth can even fall out.


How do you cure pyorrhea?

IMI Clinic cures pyorrhea with innovative treatments and advanced technologies with the aim of obtaining the best results possible and the highest degree of patient wellbeing.

The therapeutic protocol developed by IMI EDN Clinics is non-surgical and minimally invasive. The method presents many advantages when compared to traditional treatments, which don’t ensure healing nor are able to prevent relapses.

At IMI pyorrhea is treated using a surgical microscope and laser technology to permanently eliminate the bacteria that cause the disease. The solution of the problem is usually definitive, the pyorrhea tends not to reform because with the new treatments we don’t only eliminate the negative effects of the disease, but we eliminate its cause.


Permanently eliminating pyorrhea bacteria

Pyorrhea treatments that use high-powered lasers like the ones utilised by IMI Clinic, have the foremost advantage of eliminating the disease causing bacteria. The method’s results are much more effective than traditional treatment and present many other advantages: It is less onerous economically and less painful. It reduces or eliminates tooth mobility. It reduces pus and it increases the probability of success, while reducing chances of a relapse.

Furthermore, thanks to microbiological tests before and after the treatment of the pyorrhea, it is possible to verify if the bacterial load is still present in the oral cavity. Genetic testing gives us an idea of the individual’s predisposition to the formation of pyorrhea.

Have faith in us and contact IMI Clinic, where you will set off on the road of permanent healing from pyorrhea.
