This disease is caused by bacteria and traditional therapy cannot ensure total and definitive healing. Research in periodontology has made it possible to develop new, innovative, non-surgical, and non-invasive therapies.

Advantages of laser technology in the treatment of pyorrhea

Modern periodontology has devised a pyorrhea treatment based on the combination of laser and surgical microscope. This treatment can eliminate bacteria even in areas that are difficult to reach, such as the periodontal pockets. Thanks to the new technologies it is possible to achieve better results and total healing from periodontitis. The advantages of laser and microscope therapy are many:

  • No anesthesia required
  • Disease is eliminated at the root
  • Chances of relapse are markedly reduced
  • Bleeding gums and halitosis are eliminated
  • Tooth motility is eliminated and bone grows back naturally


Studies in periodontology

Along with the use of laser and surgical microscope, scientific research applied to periodontology has led to the development of molecular biology analyses to examine the bacteria present in the oral cavity qualitatively and quantitatively.

In this manner, it is possible to determine the best therapy for the peculiar and unique situation of the patient, and verify its results when it is completed.

Periodontology has grown, finding new treatments and new technologies that make a less invasive and more effective treatment of pyorrhea possible.
