Biological Periodontal Therapy
Biological periodontal therapy focuses totally on the bacteria living in the pockets around the teeth. Following the protocols of the IAOMT, a sample of the bacteria is taken and placed under a phase contrast microscope which magnifies them 400 times. Once it has been confirmed that pathogenic (bad, disease-causing) bacteria are present, therapy begins.
Sometimes those pathogens can be resistant to irrigation. In such cases, we turn to ozone therapy to kill them off.
Biological periodontal treatment is not deemed complete until no signs of the pathogenic bacteria are visible under the microscope.
