You have been diagnosed with periodontitis - what are the symptoms of this infection?
Bacteria and their toxins lead to inflammation of the gums and destruction of the jaw-bone. This means that teeth become more and more loose until finally they are lost.
Unpleasant accompanying symptoms such as bad breath, red, bleeding and often painful gums and unsightly deposits on the teeth are typical of periodontitis.
What can you do?
Choose to undergo the most up-to-date therapy - before the infection causes more damage.
With traditional periodontitis treatment, the first step is the thorough cleaning of tooth and root surfaces, as well as gum and bone pockets, in order to reduce the number of bacteria. In more difficult cases, surgical intervention may be necessary.
However, practice has shown: Cleaning measures alone do not have a sufficient and lasting effect!
Sometimes antibiotics even have to be used. These are not entirely harmless: they may cause uncomfortable side effects and negative interaction-e.g. stomach & intestinal problems - and lead to the unwanted build-up of resistance to antibiotics.
We can now offer you an alternative that is both up-to-date and effective:
Antimicrobial photodynamic therapy.
Up-to-date therapy - a ray of hope against periodontitis!
Antimicrobial photodynamic therapy is a gentle, pain-free treatment method without side effects.
How does antimicrobial photodynamic therapy work?
First, gum and bone pockets are cleaned professionally to remove soft and hard deposits and reduce the number of bacteria.
In the second step, a blue dye solution is applied to the gum and bone pockets. This solution is a photosensitiser, meaning a dye that reacts to laser light at a particular wavelength. The dye molecules attach themselves to the bacterial membranes, staining the bacteria.
The final step is exposure using a gentle therapy laser. The laser light triggers the build-up of active oxygen, which damages the bacterial membrane and therefore destroys the bacteria. In many cases, this simple, rapid therapy enables you to avoid the use of antibiotics or surgical intervention.
No pain - no side effects - you are the winner! ! Antimicrobial photodynamic therapy is painless and has no side effects! But the effect remains: In a few minutes, the therapy reduces the infectious bacteria permanently and effectively, restoring the natural balance. This has been proven in clinical studies.
