One of the most significant developments in the modern dentistry is a minimally invasive laser. WATERLASE IPLUS is a revolutionary device used by our partner dental clinic that combines YSGG laser energy and water. This allows to carry out many traditional procedures more accurately, quickly and without pain. The mucosa and periodontal tissue treatments are performed by the laser.
The laser is used for:
- Treatment of periodontitis
The laser is used to remove infected, inflammatory periodontal tissues. During the procedure, periodontal pocket is disinfected and the root surface of the tooth – cleaned. The laser treatment reduces bleeding, swelling and pain.
- Lips, tongue frenectomy
The laser allows a very precise procedure, which does not traumatize the surrounding tissues and avoids severe bleeding. This is particularly suitable for children.
- Gingivectomy (removal of gum surplus)
Laser removal of the hypertrophied gums. This cosmetic procedure is carried out in order to better the gum aesthetics. The gums heal quickly, there is no severe pain.
- Lips herpes, stomatitis treatment
After the laser procedure, there is no tendency for these diseases to progress. This is a totally painless, few minutes long procedure.
- Laser biostimulation (Laser biomodulation)
The procedures is performed for all the patients during the postoperative period. It lasts only a few minutes and accelerates tissue healing, relief of pain and swelling, also prevents inflammation. The laser light activates cell viability and regeneration.
For better results, Laser Biostimulation is done in combination with ozone therapy.
- Reduced pain;
- Less bleeding;
- Tissues are damaged minimally;
- Reduces risk of infections and complications;
- Better and faster healing;
- Suitable for any age group.
Are your teeth sensitive? Are they being stung with pain when you eat/drink cold, hot, sweet or acidic products. Dental pain suggests that your teeth likely have caries (tooth decay) – the most common dental disease in the world. Our partner dental clinic offers an effective ways for caries prevention and treatment.
Diagnosis of caries (tooth decay)
Caries (tooth decay) – a progressing loss of the hard tissues of the teeth caused by acids in the mouth. It is usually easily diagnosed. However contact caries is less visible, as most of the time it occurs in the areas between adjoining teeth (interdental caries).
Our partner dental clinic uses digital intraoral camera to improve caries diagnosis and treatment. Up to 100-times enlarged image of the patient‘s teeth may in be seen in high definition on a computer screen. Your doctor can hence assess visually invisible tooth disorders and determine the exact location/size of the tooth decay. Intraoral camera shows the patient the condition of his/her mouth and teeth, which leads to better understanding of the proposed treatment.

Treatment of the caries (tooth decay)
The initial stages of caries can be successfully treated without teeth drilling and filling. Though it is important to diagnose the early stage of tooth decay, which appears as a pigmented spot on the tooth surface (carious spot). Regular professional oral hygiene procedures and fluoride therapy stops the development of tooth decay. Fluoride therapy is effective if caries has not damaged the tooth enamel. Surface of a tooth is coated with fluoride varnish (with particular emphasis on the high-risk areas). Fluorine replenishes damaged tooth enamel with minerals, preventing the further development of dental caries. For a long-term protection of a problematic tooth, we recommend to repeat the procedure every 2-3 months.
A carious cavity (tooth cavity) appears then tooth enamel is decayed. In such case, the tooth requires filling. During the procedure local anesthesia is applied. Extremely sensitive patients may choose treatment with deep sedation.
Before filling, dentist removes the damaged part of the enamel from the tooth surface. Cleaned carious cavity is filled with filling material. Filling replaces decayed tissues of the tooth and protects the soft tissues from potential complications (eg. pulpit – a tooth nerve inflammation). Modern fillings have both durability and aesthetic qualities. Their color is identical to the natural tooth color, thus the treated teeth absolutely blend in.
While filling the front teeth, it is hard to always achieve the wanted durability and aesthetic result. Therefore, it is recommended to cover the front surface of the front tooth with ceramic plates (laminates). Learn more about the aesthetic dentistry.
There is a small probability that decay will recur after the filling of the tooth. This due to the fact that fillings wear out over time. Secondary caries also occurs when micro-cracks appear between the tooth surface and the filling, thus creating an environment for bacteria to accumulate. However modern fillings used by our partner dental clinic reduce such risks to the minimum.
Our partner dental clinic performs endodontic root canal treatment and re-treatment using Carl Zeiss dental microscope (made in Germany), which enlarges the image by 24 times. The microscope helps the doctor to see what is invisible to the naked eye – additional micro-canals, trapped stubs, root fracture or micro-cracks.
Specialist advice: timely and qualitatively performed endodontic treatment protects your tooth (or tooth root) longer and determines the success of the follow-up procedures such as – aesthetic filling or dental prosthesis.
Read about root canal treatment
Endodontic treatment – removal of the pulp (tooth nerve), throughout cleaning and sterilizing of the root canals and then filling them with gutta-percha. Gutta-percha filling is more advantageous compared to the old type fillings. It is non-toxic, allergen-free and very tightly fills in the root canals. Such hermetically filled tooth is protected from infection recurrence. However, if the damage of the tooth is very big, endodontic treatment may not be enough and tooth prosthesis with a crown may be required.
Modern medical equipment helps a specialist to work accurately and effectively and conserve most of the healthy tooth tissue. To assess the treatment, your doctor will take several X-ray pictures. For this purpose, Digital Dental X-ray machine is used. It immediately restores the high-quality image of x-ray on the computer screen. Equipment emits as much as 90% lower dose of X-rays than a normal X-ray machine. Another innovation employed by the clinic is Apex locator used to determine the location and length of the tooth roots. This device also significantly reduces the amount of X-rays for the patient.
Important! Untreated root canal is a major cause of dental problems – around the infected tooth, the jawbone begins to decay. Spread of infection in the root canal several times increases the risk of heart diseases!
Read about root canal re-treatment
The most common cause of endodontic treatment is previously done unqualified treatment. Not so long ago, while treating root canals, dentists could only rely on their tactile senses and radiograph. Primitive methods of treatment and the old generation filling materials did not let the doctors to achieve the results, which are easily achievable now. Due to a poor quality root canal treatment, previously treated teeth often can get infected again. In such case, they must be retreated: it is necessary to hermetically refill the filling.
The probability that at some time after endodontic treatment, the infection will resume is very small. The latest technology allows to destroy the majority of micro-organisms, but even if the root canal filling is performed properly, it does not guarantee 100% treatment success. The research data suggest that initial endodontic treatment is successfully completed in 80-95 cases per 100 on average.
Specialist advice: timely treated periodontal disease can prevent the loss of tooth. Diagnosed at the early stage, any type of periodontal disease can be cured completely and painlessly. Surgical treatment is applied when the disease is advanced and can no longer be treated in conservative ways.
The most advanced technology – WATERLASE IPLUS dental laser is used in our partner dental clinic, which makes periodontal treatment of all types efficient, quick and painless.
Important! Nearly half of people older than 18 experience gingival signs of inflammation. And as much as 75% of people over 35 years old suffer from periodontal disease. It has a negative impact on human health: increases the risk of developing atherosclerosis, having a stroke or heart attack.

|Healthy parodontium Gingivitis (inflammation of gums) Periodontitis|
Gingivitis – inflammation of the gums. With the development of gingivitis your gums turns red, gets swollen, starts bleeding on contact and can be painful. If you notice these symptoms, you should consult a dentist. Untreated gingivitis eventually develops to a more severe disease – periodontitis. A professional oral hygiene procedures are needed to treat gingvitis. During such procedure, the mouth is rinsed with special products to improve oral hygiene. Ozone therapy is also an effective way to treat gum inflammation.
Periodontitis – a very serious periodontal disease. It occurs when untreated gingvitas from the gums spreads to the deeper tissues. Patients not only suffer from bleeding gums and bad breath, but also periodontal ligaments supporting the teeth get affected and start to decay. Gums get detached from the teeth forming pockets, thus creating an environment for bacteria to accumulate. While the disease progresses, the jawbone begins to decay. The teeth lose their stability, become loose and may eventually fall out completely. Depending on the stage of the disease, periodontitis can be treated non-surgically or surgically.
Check the non-surgical ways to treat periodontitis
- Root plaque cleaning – cleaning the soft and hard plaque (tartar) from the gingival pockets
- Ozone therapy
- Root polishing (for the gums to lie in stronger contact with the tooth root, the root’s surface gets smoothed)
- Antibiotics (because periodontitis is caused by micro-organisms, treatment with antibiotics is effective)
- Dental splint (splinted unstable teeth are combined into one block)
Important! It is important to watch the condition of the bone around the splinted teeth. If bone atrophy (decay) progresses,the tooth loss is inevitable. It is therefore crucial to remove a tooth (damaged by periodontitis) as soon as possible till there is still enough bone to perform dental implantation.
Check the ways of surgical treatment of periodontitis
- Flap surgery
- Soft tissue plastic surgery
Parodontosis – genetically inherited periodontal ligament pathology. It may result in a complete loss of the teeth. Having parodontosis makes it difficult to chew harder food, gums start to bleed, you may suffer from bad breath. Later the gums detach from the teeth, hence exposing the tooth necks. Disease progresses and the jawbone begins to decay. Teeth lose their stability, become loose and may eventually fall out completely.The most effective treatment for parodontosis is Implant Dentistry.
Important! In the worst case parodontosis and periodontitis may result in a total loss of the teeth. Dental implants can restore the lost tooth. It is therefore very important to remove a bad tooth in order to save as much jawbone as possible. As long as there is enough bone, dental implant prognosis is favorable – in the place of the lost teeth, an implant can be placed immediately. When there is not enough bone left, Bone augmentation needs to be performed before implantation.
Gum Disease Prevention
Daily dental and gums’ care at home is the most effective way to prevent periodontal diseases. For optimal oral hygiene and gum protection we recommend Waterpik® oral irrigation Gum pockets are maintained by a special nozzle which cleans hard to reach areas from plaque.

Our partner dental clinic does everything to save a natural tooth. If the problem is chronic and conservative treatment methods can no longer help, a tooth extraction is recommended. Modern methods allow to do it without traumatizing the adjacent teeth and tissues (atraumatic extraction of the tooth).
Tooth extraction is necessary in the following cases:
- incorrect tooth position (irregular or crooked teeth)
- orthodontics (orthodontic bite treatment to prevent the crowding of teeth)
- severely damaged teeth (teeth unsuitable for prosthesis)
- prevalence of periodontal disease (tooth unable to perform the chewing function)
- tooth (or tooth root) fracture
The term impacted teeth is used when a tooth is fully developed, but for various reasons have not emerged completely (usually – wisdom teeth).
Why should an impacted tooth be surgically removed:
- such a tooth prevents eruption of other permanent teeth
- pathological bone pocket is formed between the erupted and impacted tooth
- impacted tooth gets affected by tooth decay (caries)
- soft tissue inflammation develops around an impacted tooth (pericoronarite)
Soft tissue’s plastic surgery – a surgical gum reconstruction in the areas with the lack of tissue. It is done to treat gum recession – a disease which separates gums from the tooth, exposing the tooth neck or even a part of the root. There are many ways to restore damaged gums. One of them – healthy gum tissue grafting to receding gums.
Plastic surgery of soft tissue is required to treat diastema (a large gap between the front teeth). When the cause of a diastema is a labial frenum – plastic surgery of labial frenum is performed. This is a procedure that removes the labial frenum, which forms the gap between the teeth. The best time to perform this surgery is during the eruption of the permanent front teeth. Timely removal of the labial frenum, makes the gap between the teeth disappear without any additional treatments (otherwise orthodontic treatment is applied).
The combination of laser and ozone is one of the medical innovations that makes our partner dental clinic’s patients quickly return to a normal life and daily activities.
You regularly visit your dental hygienist?
Then you already know that regular oral hygiene helps you to avoid many dental problems, and saves you time and money.
What is done during the professional oral hygiene procedure:
- Soft and hard plaque (tartar) is safely and painlessly removed with special instruments and ultrasonic scaler.
- The stream of baking soda Air Flow (mixture of water and baking soda) quickly and effectively removes tobacco, coffee and red wine traces on the surface of the teeth, and also cleans darkened interdental spaces. The final result is much whiter teeth;
- The teeth are polished with a special toothbrush and toothpaste. Hence, they become resistant to the formation of new plaque;
- The teeth and interdental spaces are covered with fluoride varnish. This protects the teeth from sensitivity for up to 3 months;
- The patient is given a specialist consultation on regular oral hygiene at home, tooth and gum disease prevention. If it seems necessary, additional oral hygiene measures are recommended.
Professional oral hygiene leads to the following results:
- Your teeth will become a few shades whiter;
- You will experience freshness in your mouth, which will give you a sense of comfort;
- Bad breath will be gone, thus you will have much more confidence when talking with people.
- No tooth sensitivity and gum bleeding;
- You will be calm and content with your oral health.
