Periodontitis is an inflammation of the periodontium. Treat the most common dental disease with Sanakin®.
Dentistry – periodontitis
Periodontitis is an inflammation of the periodontium. This is mostly caused by a bacterial infection which first causes gingivitis and can then spread to the jaw bone. Left untreated, periodontitis may result in the loss of teeth over the long run.
Periodontitis is one of the most prevalent diseases of the teeth. Its root cause generally is dental plaque – thus bacterial accumulations on the surface of the tooth which is due to inadequate or poor dental and oral hygiene. In order to treat periodontitis, remove dental plaque and clean any gingival pockets which had formed.
If, after such prior treatment, the pockets are more than five millimeters deep – this is usually the case with advanced periodontitis – remove the gingival pockets surgically. Scientific studies prove that periodontitis increases the risk of cardiovascular conditions, high blood pressure, stroke and diabetes. In case of periodontitis in pregnant women, the risk of prema- ture birth is dramatically increased.
Chronic inflammation of the jaw bone – inflammatory and fatty-degenerative processes in the jaw bone
In case of problems due to an infection, antibiotics are generally prescribed. However, they will only reach the acutely inflammatory part of the wound. The antibiotics will shift processes from an acute to a chronic condition. The poorly tended jaw bones do not come into contact with the antibiotic; subsequently, chronically persisting jaw bone inflammation will result. Dreaded is here especially NICO (neuralgia- inducing cavitational osteonecrosis) which is difficult to visualize by X-ray.
But pathogens from deep gingival pockets or from dead or root-filled teeth can also cause the fatty dissolution of NICO and send toxic metabolic products and inflammatory transmit- ters into far-removed areas of the body. Ostitis of the jaw bone frequently develops where teeth had been removed, in the upper jaw and the lower jaw. This »internal scar« in the jaw bone acts as a chronic disorder. Such “interference zones” may trigger acute conditions or promote chronic diseases. In particular, sensitive, stressed and immunocompromised persons may be highly burdened by such interference zones and entirely bring down their health.
Potential areas of application
Periodontal disease is one of the most common dental diseases. Cause are usually plaque – accumulations of bacteria on the tooth surface, which result from inadequate dental and oral hygiene. To treat them, the dentist must first remove the plaque and clean the resulting periodontal pockets.
If the pockets are deeper than five millimeters after this pretreatment – which is usually the case with advanced periodontitis – the dentist should remove the periodontal pockets as quickly as possible. Scientific studies have shown that periodontitis increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, stroke and diabetes. The risk of premature birth is drastically increased in the presence of periodontitis in pregnant women.
Jawbone Inflammation | ONJ
When a problem occurs due to an infection, an antibiotic is usually prescribed. However, this only reaches the acute inflammatory part of the wound. The antibiotics shift the events from an acute to a chronic disease. The poorly supplied jawbone are not affected by the antibiotic, it comes in the episode to chronic non-healing jawbone inflammations. Above all, the NICO (neuralgia-inducing cavity-forming osteonecrosis), which is barely visible radiographically, is feared here.
In addition, pathogens from deep periodontal pockets or from dead or root-filled teeth can cause the greasy dissolution of a NICO in the jawbone and send toxic metabolic products and inflammatory messengers to far-away areas of the body. Osteoarthritis often develops where teeth have been removed, in the maxilla and mandible. This “internal scar” in the jaw acts as a chronic disorder. Such “interference fields” can trigger acute symptoms or promote chronic diseases. In particular, sensitive, stressed and immunocompromised persons can greatly burden such interference fields and worsen their health.
Possible applications of Sanakin® in the jaw:
• Acute and chronic ostitis of the jaw bone
• Residual ostitis
• Mandibular joint arthritis
• NICO (Neuralgia Inducing Cavitational Osteonecrosis)
• Inflammation of the temporal joint
Application of Sanakin® in dental surgery
The medical device Sanakin® can be used in dentistry, so that the treating dentist can perform treatments purely biological and completely endogenous.
With the help of the medical device 10 ml of the patient’s blood is transformed into a serum that can be used in dentistry.
