Periodontitis is one of the most serious and dangerous dental diseases. This disease is difficult to treat, and much depends on the stage of development of periodontitis. Scientists were able to develop the apparatus "Vector", which is able to cope with this difficult disease. What is this medical device, how does it work, and how effective is it?
Features of treatment of periodontitis
The body of the tooth is surrounded and held by periodontal tissues. When these tissues begin to break down and the dental necks are laid bare. At an early stage, the disease proceeds with almost no symptoms. At the first signs of periodontitis immediately few people pay attention. The first symptoms include:
- slight bleeding of the gums;
- bad breath.
Most people think that this will pass soon and they don’t go to a dentist. In fact, the disease is very insidious. The most dangerous thing is that without treatment and prevention of periodontitis, you can be left without teeth after a while. The danger of the disease lies in the inflammatory process in the gums and the destruction of bone tissue in the jaw.
The problem of periodontitis is faced by people of any sex and almost 80% seek help from the dentist with this ailment. Methods of treatment are used different, depending on the stage of the disease. The most effective method is considered complex therapy. Treatment methods used are general and local. Common ones include:
- the use of anti-inflammatory and antihistamine drugs;
- the use of antibiotics that can remove pathogenic bacteria.
- cleaning teeth and gums from plaque and stone;
- cleaning of periodontal pockets;
- the use of local drugs with anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiseptic action.
If the disease has reached a severe stage, then a specialist can apply an orthopedic treatment method, including prosthetics.
The process of periodontitis treatment is impossible without the use of drugs. They contribute to the reduction of pathogenic bacteria in the patient's mouth. This is usually achieved with the help of complex measures:
- timely teeth cleaning;
- rinsing the mouth using antiseptic solutions;
For washing periodontal pockets antiseptics are used:
- 3% hydrogen peroxide solution;
These tools, with proper and regular use, give a good effect in treating the disease.
Antibiotics are prescribed by a doctor when other methods are ineffective. They are prescribed for focal juvenile periodontitis, as well as when the disease progresses strongly. The doctor himself decides what antibiotics to prescribe to the patient. He selects the most effective drugs for each individually. The best result is achieved when a combination of drugs metronidazole and amoxicillin is used.
If a patient has a purulent process, then the doctor prescribes antibiotics immediately. Purulent process is very dangerous because it carries the risk of contamination of the patient's blood.
During treatment with antibiotics, the doctor monitors the response of the patient. An allergic reaction may occur and the task of the specialist is to prevent its occurrence.If systemic use of antibiotics, it will affect the body as a whole and achieve faster recovery.
The device "Vector"
In addition to the medical treatment of periodontitis, other methods of dealing with this disease are also used. Modern methods include laser therapy. Using the laser, the patient effectively and gently cleanses the periodontal pockets for purulent inflammation. At the same time, the pockets are sterilized. When using a laser, the process of stimulating the growth of bone tissue occurs. Laser also operate on soft tissue. This method is less traumatic and almost bloodless, and the risk of infection is minimized.
For a long time it was believed that periodontitis is not treatable. Thanks to the newly developed methods of dealing with this disease, it has now become possible. Apparatus "Vector" was created in Germany and is currently used successfully in many modern dental clinics. It is an ultrasound unit for the treatment of gum disease and professional dental hygiene.
Its principle of operation is based on the use of an ultrasonic wave. It creates an emulsion layer of the element. It is then used to remove plaque and plaque. With the help of the device, periodontitis correction is performed under local anesthesia. The patient during the session does not feel pain or discomfort.
The device "Vector" gently and gently removes all dental deposits in the gum area and at the same time improves the periodontal condition. It has compact dimensions and a foot switch is connected to its main part. Also he supplied with various nozzles and a set of special suspensions:
Using other methods of treatment, periodontal pockets can be cleaned to a depth of no more than 5 mm. Using the apparatus "Vector", periodontal pockets are gently and effectively cleaned from the contents with a maximum depth of 11 mm.
The main advantages of the apparatus "Vector"
This device is ultrasonic and is used for professional hygiene, tooth brushing and in the treatment of various gum diseases. He began to be actively used for treatment in recent years. Its main advantages are:
- has no contraindications;
- no bleeding and minimal trauma;
- does not leave scars on the mucous membrane and qualitatively cleanses periodontal pockets of pus;
- allows you to avoid surgery;
- thanks to flexible instruments, it is possible to get to the most distant parts of the gums;
- the device is used for cleaning prostheses from metal-ceramic and implants;
- after the procedure, the gum is tight to the tooth;
- after the first session positive results are noticeable;
- the method is suitable for the treatment of the elderly, pregnant women;
- thanks to the new technology, it is possible to completely get rid of all the deposits that cause inflammation;
- gum tissue begins to recover faster after the procedure, since the device has an antibacterial and antiseptic effect on the oral mucosa.
Features of use of the device "Vector"
During the procedure, the dentist selects the necessary nozzles, depending on the application. There is no direct contact of the device with the tooth tissues and gums, which is very important. The affected tissues are processed at the micro level and microfilms with pathogenic microorganisms are gradually destroyed.
When conducting conventional ultrasound procedures using distilled water. During sessions with the apparatus "Vector" applied solution "Vector Fluid polish". In its composition, it contains particles of hydroxylapatite. This improves the polishing of the root, decreases the sensitivity of the teeth after the ultrasonic cleaning procedure.
Full treatment takes place in several stages. One session Lasts from 40 minutes to 2 hours. It all depends on the degree of damage, the amount of work. After the first course, prescribed next 2 weeks. At the reception, the doctor assesses the condition of the gums and, if necessary, prescribes another procedure.
The patient after treatment must comply with all the recommendations of a specialist to consolidate the result. The next visit to the dental hygienist should be within 1.5 months. The device "Vector" can be used for the following problems:
- periodontal disease;
- if necessary, a soft preparation of gum tissue and tooth.
With this device you can get rid of not only the unpleasant manifestations of the disease, but also to remove the main cause of the disease.
Already after the first procedure with the help of the apparatus "Vector" patients note positive results:
- the gums are significantly strengthened;
- decreases the rate of formation of various dental deposits;
- stabilized root.
After a full course of treatment using the apparatus "Vector" gum tissue strengthens, the formation of dental deposits is suspended. The pathological mobility of the teeth also visibly decreases or disappears completely.
To preserve the effectiveness of the result obtained after treatment, it is recommended to carefully observe the preventive measures associated with oral hygiene.
