How to help from periodontitis


Recommendation of the President of Czech periodontal Company:

Periodontics is the branch where was a place to introduce new therapeutic and diagnostic methods. At present, it is globally accepted the fact that the anaerobic gram-negative organisms are a critical etiological factor in the creation and development of inflammatory periodontal disease. Diagnosis of these diseases is based on clinical and X-ray examination, as well as on microbiological license periodontal pathogens. Their detection is usually performed by using PCR methods.

These tests are already in many countries commonly used in dentistry, but also become an important assistant in general medicine. It demonstrates the fact that periodontal disease may affect the incidence and severity of a number of diseases such as atherosclerosis, myocardial infarction, or diabetes mellitus.

Therefore I very welcome that the Czech dental public receive in the hands modern diagnostic method for detection of seven types of periodontal pathogens, which finds wide application in periodontics, implantology, and has also applications in general medicine. In any case, facilitate and specify indication of antibiotics in severe forms of periodontitis.

In particular, I appreciate that this product is Czech, fully replacing foreign products. In addition, it is financially affordable. Its implementation will certainly contribute to further refine and monitor the treatment of periodontal disease. Our options are moved further forward.
