Sex by photodynamic therapy is understood as one of the most effective methods in modern dentistry, which is successfully used in the treatment of periodontitis, as well as gum disease. Note that one of the causes of the disease is the influence of bacteria. In order to prevent the development of inflammatory processes, it is important to visit the dentist every six months for professional teeth cleaning and other procedures. Note that photodynamic therapy has an effective antimicrobial effect and is also used in complex treatment.

How is the procedure performed?

In our dental clinic, a laser is used for this procedure, as well as specialized drugs that are injected into the periodontal pocket and, accumulating in the foci of inflammation, can color them in a bright shade. The drugs act on the body locally, and the cumulative effect can persist throughout the entire period of treatment. Under the influence of laser radiation, these substances are activated with the subsequent formation of oxygen, as well as free radicals that destroy bacteria. After this procedure, the bright stain can be easily washed off the teeth. Note that photodynamic therapy can be performed for 40-60 minutes and carried out in several sessions, the break between which is one week. Further, the procedure can be performed once every several months.

Among the main indications for this procedure are:
  • Complex treatment of gingivitis and periodontitis.
  • Inflammation of the tooth socket after extraction.
  • Inflammation of bone and soft tissue after tooth implantation.
  • Postoperative complications.
