Endodontics – The Root Canal Treatment
Once a tooth is sick, e. g. with caries, bacteria can enter and damage or destroy the pulp. Radiculitis is the result in different degrees. Those affected complain about exogenous irritations from cold and hot, later follow redness, swelling, and throbbing pain.
How proceeds a Therapy of Root Canal Treatment?
At the begin of endodontic treatment, the affected tooth is anaesthetised and the oral cavity sealed with a dental dam. To get to the root canals your dentist is using ultra flexible disposable nickel-titan files. An endometry measuring follows. After this, the real cleaning of the open canals begins. To get a 100 per cent asepsis and to reach the bacterial foci, in Turkey we use ultrasonic rinsing solutions and diode lasers.
Periodontology – The Science of the Periodontal Apparatus
Three forms of the disease are most often seen in periodontology: Gingivitis is an infection of the gum; periodontitis is an infection of the periodontium, and with peri-implantitis, the bone is infected which is surrounding an implant. All parodistic symptoms are triggered by bacteria in large amounts by lack of teeth hygiene and oral hygiene.
The most seen form is periodontitis. This form is divided into chronic periodontitis which is progressing slowly, and the aggressive periodontitis, which is progressing fast.
How is Parodontitis treated?
The goal of every parodistic treatment is the total elimination of all hard and soft plaque at the teeth and below the gum. Often an exhaustive cleansing of the gingival pockets shows already satisfying results. If not, an operative procedure can be done to bring the desired result. Very aggressive strains of bacteria have to be treated with antibiotics.
After 4-6 weeks an intermediate checking is needed by your dentist. Generally, after a year 3-4 periodontal treatments are necessary to reduce more risks.
