         Application of ozone in the treatment of periodontal disease
Application of ozone in Periodontics comes as a result of its physic-chemical properties. Its known actions on human body are antimicrobial, analgesic, immunostimulating, antihypoxic and detoxicating.
Ozone can be used in gaseous form via an open system or via a sealing suction system to avoid inhalation and its adverse effects.
Ozonated water has been shown to be very effective against bacteria, fungi and viruses.
In addition to gaseous and aqueous form, oils that are ozonized also seems extremely convenient.
Though gaseous ozone was shown to have more effective microbicidal properties than aqueous form, ozonated olive oil and water is the most used form  in dentistry.

               PERIO PROTECT 
  Perio Protect is a comprehensive approach to gum disease treatment. The approach combines dental cleanings with the comfortable Perio TrayŽ delivery of medication that patients use at home between office visits.


Deep scaling-cleaning in Brooklyn NY, root planing, and soft tissue curettage (removal of inflamed tissue). In the early stages of gum disease, most treatment involves a special cleaning called scaling and root planing, which removes plaque and tartar around the tooth and smoothes the root surfaces. Antibiotics or anti-microbials may be used to supplement the effects of scaling and root planing. In most cases of early gum disease, scaling and root planing and proper daily cleaning at home will help. Removal of tartar from the deepest areas of the periodontal pockets, planing of the tooth root surfaces and removal of the diseased soft tissue by curettage, usually decreases pocket depth and slows or stops periodontal disease. Routine oral hygiene scaling, polishing, and examination are increased to once every two to three months. Systemic and local antibiotics and rinses may also be included in the therapy.
In more advanced cases Brooklyn dentist  Dr. Y Vaysman will refer you for a consultation to a specialist - Periodontist
Periodontal means "around the tooth". Periodontal disease is an ongoing, slowly progressing, difficult-to-stop disease. Unless it is treated, it will continue to destroy your teeth. Plaque - the sticky colorless film that constantly builds on your teeth - is recognized as the primary cause of gum disease. If plaque isn't removed each day by brushing and flossing, it hardens into a rough, porous substance called calculus or tartar. Toxins produced and released by bacteria in plaque irritate the gums. These toxins cause the breakdown of the fibers that hold the gums tightly to the teeth, creating periodontal pockets that will fill with even more toxins and bacteria. As the disease progresses, pockets become deeper, and the bacteria move down until the bone that holds the teeth in place is destroyed. Eventually, severe infection may develop with pain and swelling. The teeth may loosen. There are other factors, too. Smokers and tobacco users are at a higher risk of developing gum disease. Research also shows that periodontal disease is related to causing heart disease, stroke,pancreatic cancer and diabetes.
