Periodontology – Warsaw – Niewada Clinic
Niewada Clinic is a Center for Treating Periodontal Diseases with many years of experience and hundreds of cured Patients. Periodontics is our specialty because our team consists of outstanding experts who have developed effective procedures for treating periodontitis.
Why Is It Worthy to Choose Our Clinic?
Periodontal disease often takes the joy out of smiling. To eliminate it, periodontal treatment in our clinic is based on effective protocols developed through close cooperation between our two periodontists: Prof. Anna Skurska, DDS, PhD, and Dr. Paweł Niewada, DDS, PhD. They share their experience with other doctors through courses on the “Smart Dentistry” training platform.
Our specialists will help in cases of loose teeth, periodontal disease, recessions, the need for bone and gum regeneration and periodontitis, being some of the main factors that, in addition to dysfunction, also have a negative impact on the psyche and self-confidence.
We believe that teamwork is the key to achieving the best treatment outcomes. That is why at Niewada Clinic we form a team of specialists with many years of experience, who have performed hundreds of successful procedures with varying degrees of complexity. In every situation, our patient is assured that they are in good hands.
Perfect Smile Step by Step
An aesthetically pleasing and healthy smile consists of several elements. One of them is gums. The role of a doctor specializing in periodontics is precisely to guard the health and longevity of the gums. It’s very important to monitor the gums health and watch for alarming symptoms such as bleeding during brushing, unpleasant breath or a sense of tooth mobility.
Periodontics is a branch of dentistry that includes the treatment of the gums and tissues surrounding the teeth, or what is known as periodontitis. Undertaking periodontal therapy aims to inhibit further tissue destruction by reducing bacteria and eliminating deep periodontal pockets. A prerequisite for the success of properly conducted treatment is maintaining proper hygiene by the patient and regular follow-up appointments.
The Most Common Signs of Gum Diseases:
Red and swollen gums
Bleeding during toothbrushing
Visible tooth roots
Periodontitis treatment in our clinic begins with professional prophylaxis aimed at proper hygiene, which are carried out by professionally trained staff. These procedures are intended to control the level of oral hygiene and to measure relevant indicators to assess the actual periodontal status.
Treatment is the more effective the better you master the proper daily oral hygiene routine. Repeated regular scaling and root planning procedures can often stop the inflammatory process in a minimally invasive manner.
The More Advanced Treatment Stages
In severe forms of the disease, when first-line treatment has not been successful, surgery may be indicated. It allows the dentist to reach deeper areas and clean them thoroughly.
Reduction of pathological pockets, proper daily hygiene, regular check-ups and professional prophylaxis significantly increase the chances of preserving your own teeth and reduce the risk of serious health problems related to periodontitis.
At Niewada Clinic, we specialize in regenerative procedures. When there is loss of tissue surrounding a tooth, these procedures can help to partially restore the lost bone and soft tissue (gum).
Another method is to apply a special gel (called Emdogain) to the surface of the tooth root. Emdogain contains a special protein that stimulates the restoration of lost structures.
Guided Tissue Regeneration
It allows for the restoration of bone and tissue surrounding the tooth that have been damaged by bacteria. A special biocompatible barrier membrane is placed between the tooth root and the bone to protect the regenerating area from unwanted epithelial tissue, creating proper conditions for new tissue formation.
This procedure is performed to restore bone lost due to periodontitis. Bone grafts may consist of your own bone or other bone replacement materials. By providing a platform for new bone growth, they help to keep the tooth in the socket.
Why Do Gums Bleed During Brushing?
Bleeding gums are a symptom of inflammation going on in the gums. This happens when we brush our teeth incorrectly and excess bacteria build up around our teeth. It leads to swelling and hyperemia of the gums. They become sore and bleed easily upon the slightest touch.
If we do not implement treatment on time, the progressive inflammation will cause atrophy of the bone under the gums and the process will become irreversible, leading to tooth mobility and, consequently, tooth loss.
We refer to this condition as periodontal disease commonly called periodontitis.
Does Smoking Harm Your Teeth?
Smoking is the second most powerful risk factor for periodontitis after bacteria. It is associated with up to an 8-fold increase in the risk of disease progression, and the severity of periodontal disease depends on the number of cigarettes smoked and the duration of the addiction.
Smoking changes the environment of the mouth to a more acidic and anaerobic one, thus increasing the growth of particularly dangerous bacteria responsible for the progression of periodontitis. It is associated with inferior treatment outcomes in smokers.
How Is Periodontitis Treated?
At our center, the treatment of periodontitis is managed by specialists, periodontists, who initially conduct a thorough periodontal examination and measurements.
Therapy involves reducing the amount of bacteria around the teeth and in the entire mouth, as well as correcting areas that may promote bacteria accumulation. For this purpose, we use machine tools such as ultrasonic scalers, air-polishers and hand tools.
We specialize in regenerating lost periodontal tissues and improving tooth stability.
How to Get Rid of Bad Breath
Undoubtedly, bad breath, or halitosis, is a problem for many patients. The most common cause of bad breath is the bacteria inhabiting the mouth, so we should first of all treat the teeth and gums.
It is important to make sure that we do not have any cavities or failing fillings. Teeth that can no longer be saved should be removed, and gum inflammation treated first of all by performing hygiene procedures.
If this is not enough, a gastroenterologist and ENT specialist should be consulted, because gastrointestinal disorders and respiratory diseases may also be the cause of this condition.
How to Prepare for a Periodontal Procedure?
First and foremost, you should be in good health. Your health is the baseline for treatment, so it’s a good idea to take care of it before your periodontal procedure. What we recommend:
Giving up alcohol and tobacco products, e-cigarettes, etc,
Vitamin C and D supplementation, as well as magnesium and calcium supplementation, as indicated by your doctor prior to surgery,
Rest and relaxation.
