About periodontics

Periodontics is the specialty of dentistry that studies supporting structures of teeth, as well as diseases and conditions that affect them. Unfortunately the periodontal disease that has already developed cannot be reversed, but with the right treatment, it can be slowed down and made symptom-free. It is very important to stop and slow down the possible bone loss and inflammation around the tooth. The most important thing in this process is proper oral hygiene and interdental cleaning, as well as regular check-ups. As a preparatory treatment, we remove the tartar either with the classic ultrasonic depurator or the ultra-modern EMS device.

GBT / Guided Biofilm Therapy

Guided Biofilm Therapy is the systematic, predictable solution for dental biofilm management in professional prophylaxis using state of the art AIRFLOW® , PERIOFLOW® and PIEZON® technologies. It is proven by scientific evidence. Guided Biofilm Therapy consists of treatment protocols based on individual patient diagnosis and risk assessment in order to achieve optimal results. The treatment is given in the least invasive way, with the highest level of comfort, safety and efficiency.

Laser-assisted APDT Therapy

APDT (Antimicrobial photodynamic therapy) Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a treatment modality that was initiated in 1900; however, it was not until the last decade that PDT regained attention for its several favourable features during the treatment of microbial infections in endodontics.

Recently, several papers advocated its use for root canal treatment. The concept of photodynamic inactivation requires microbial exposure to either exogenous or endogenous photosensitizer molecules, followed by visible light energy, typically wavelengths in the red/near-infrared region that cause the excitation of the photosensitizers resulting in the production of singlet oxygen and other reactive oxygen species that react with intracellular components and consequently produce cell inactivation and death.

Recently, PDT has been suggested as a promising effective adjunct to standard antimicrobial intracanal cleaning and shaping for the treatment of periapical lesions. Current publications tested PDT in terms of bacterial load reduction in vivo, in vitro and ex vivo, showing promising results.

The purpose of this article was to review the existing literature on PDT in the endodontic field regarding its mechanism of action, photosensitizers and light sources, limitations and clinical procedures. Although positive results have been demonstrated in vitro, there are considerably fewer in vivo investigations. In conclusion, more in vivo studies are needed on the use of antimicrobial PDT in root canal treatment.
