Lithotripsy

Gum disease affects more than 50% of the adult population and in most of cases is a manifestation of infection with bacteria and oral parasites.

To cure our patients of gum disease, we use lithotripsy, a non-surgical treatment of gum disease, which gently removes tartar deposits under the gum while gradually eliminating the disease. The amoeba Entamoeba gingivalis is the most common microorganism found in all periodontal diseases. Its presence is easy to confirm by using a microscope and a video system where you can follow the evolution of the established clinical procedures and your results. Patients affected by this amoeba greatly appreciate being informed. These parasites are highly mobile, they can oppose our immune system and they have highly pathogenic features in addition to promoting the appearance of pus in the gum. They are typically associated with the destruction of maxillary bones and the deterioration of the gums. Some general symptoms may occur.

To control the course of the disease and ensure the success of lithotripsy, it is recommended to perform some home care using antiseptics and special treatment-specific toothbrushing. Some patients may also need to take antibiotics, if needed. In the most advanced cases of periodontal disease, your dentist may use root scaling under anesthesia to complete the treatment.

The complete elimination of the Entamoeba gingivalis parasite and pathogenic bacteria leads to a rapid and stable healing of chronic and aggressive periodontitis, including stopping bleeding, eliminating bad breath, closing infected periodontal pockets: this on the condition that residual tartar is removed, and natural healing of the gingiva can continue.

The protocol we use was created by Dr. Mark Bonner, founder of the Institut International de la Parodontie
