Gum disease, also known as gingivitis and periodontal disease, is where the gums become swollen, sore or infected.
If you have gum disease, your gums may bleed when you brush your teeth and you may have bad breath.
In severe cases of gum disease, a condition called periodontitis can develop.
It affects the tissues that support teeth and hold them in place. If periodontitis is not treated, the bone in your jaw can shrink away then small spaces can open up between the gum and teeth. Your teeth can become loose and may eventually fall out.
Laser Photodisinfection (Perioreen) - Gum and bone regeneration (Emdogain)
The team at Vitaliteeth DentalSpa is excited about Periogreen, a new product from Elexxion. The stock market went crazy when this product went on sale. This light-activated material was on back order worldwide for months.
As the leading Laser dental centre we are proud to present Periogreen treatment to our patients. Vitaliteeth DentalSpa is the only Laser centre outside of London providing this treatment.
75% of adults suffer from gum disease, it is the major cause of tooth loss in adults. Common signs can be bleeding on brushing, bad breath and tooth mobility, so please do not ignore them.
In the past periodontal or gum disease could only be controlled. Gum and bone that had been lost could never grow back and surgery, hygienist maintenance and extraction of eventually loose teeth were the only options available.
At Vitaliteeth DentalSpa we have been successfully using laser therapy for about a year in collaboration with Emdogain and Periogreen to regenerate gum and bone.
Now we can give you Periogreen in combination with Laser therapy. A 30 minute pain-free treatment brings mostly on the first visit immediate results.
Somebody once said:
“Martin, when you talk about perio green® it sounds like you have invented a magic cure.”
