Periodontal diseases are one of the most significant problems affecting people for ages. Various advancements have been introduced in the probing sector where the exact measurements of the pockets and clinical attachment are taken. Radiographic techniques which have a 3D view of the defect have improved overtimes.
What are the advancements in periodontics
Ozone therapy Friedrich in 1839, discovered a gas that was pungent with an electric smell. He called it ozone from the Greek word odorant. After its discovery for 16 years, it was used in a hospital set up to sterilize surgical instruments and disinfect the rooms used in operating. Ozone has increased circulation, activates the immune, restores a proper oxygen metabolism, induces a friendly ecologic environment, and eliminates pathogens.
Secondly, there is the use of new drugs in treating periodontal diseases. The use of new drugs in treating periodontics like resolving has been used initially to treat conditions like asthma, inflammatory bowel diseases, and rheumatic arthritis, which lowers the generation of neutrophils where inflammation has taken place. Resolvin also reduces reactive oxygen species and cytokines, which are being produced, decreasing the inflammation rate. Other drugs like Adalibumb and denosumab help in reducing inflammation.
Other advancements include.
Nanotechnology is the 5th generation of probes with a design that provides a 3D view, and they are non-invasive. The sonographic search, which is ultra, uses ultrasonic rays to detect the image and map it under the periodontal alignment where the periodontal disease is. A device called OCT gives an actual tomographic impression which is 3D and has a high resolving power.
There is a new generation of probing systems. There are five generations of probing tools that improve the tools; thus, treating periodontal diseases is more accessible.
