Tooth Mobility Treatment | Treatment for the teeth that move
Even though tooth mobility is not a disease itself, it is very important to act as fast as you can if you notice that your teeth are affected by it. Most dentists consider that when tooth mobility can be noticed, the teeth can't be saved. This is completely wrong! Tooth mobility can be treated by using modern dentistry techniques, such as Electronic Doctor and T-Scan III occlusal analysis.
According to the patient's diagnosis, our doctors can treat tooth mobility (dental mobility) by using 3 high tech techniques:
- » Professional Scaling (the affected tooth and its surrounding tissue is treated and cleaned with complete care);
- » Electronic Doctor regenerative technique (regenerates the hard tissue/bone that sustains the tooth);
- » Digital Dental Occlusion Analysis (makes sure that the mobile tooth is not exposed to high pressure).
1. Teeth Scaling
A mobile tooth is not properly sustained in the alveolar tooth or in the gums. The space that exists between the gums and the tooth is probably populated with lots of bacterial plaque, that being the reason why the gums keep growing apart from the tooth. A single cleaning session will remove all that plaque, allowing the gums to adhere to the tooth and the bone tissue to heal.
- » Teeth scaling (pain free);
- » Sub gingival scaling;
- » Periodontal pockets cleaning (if necessary).
2. Digital Dental Occlusion Analysis
Malocclusion can be a causing factor of tooth mobility. Any periodontal infection combined with high pressure exposure can lead to dental mobility or even tooth loss. Even though the modern dentistry recognizes the importance of dental occlusion, in most dental clinics this is not taken as serious as it should. In our clinic we use the latest dental occlusion analysis technology, the T-Scan III digital occlusion analysis system.
This device allows us to identify the teeth contacts that are causing problems with a precision of 99 percent. This digital system offers precise results for static occlusion, dynamic occlusion or centric occlusion, unlike the classical "articulary paper" which offers only little information on static occlusion.
If the patient is affected by tooth mobility and bruxism (teeth grinding) as well, we treat bruxism first. In order to do so, we use the T-Scan III dental occlusion analysis system, which is synchronized with an EMG (electromyograph). This way, we'll be able to correct the occlusion considering the activity of the jaw muscles as well.
3. Electronic Doctor regenerative technique
The Electronic Doctor regenerative sessions must be preceded by a professional teeth cleaning session (teeth scaling, cleaning, periodontal pockets treatment). The Electronic Doctor device guides lots of regenerative cells in the affected area. The alveolar bone resorption will stop and new cells will form tissue around the mobile tooth. The regeneration will begin in the gums as well. The inflammation will disappear and the gums will come close to the tooth. This treatment needs to be repeated a few times for two months. The procedure is minimally invasive; basically the patient will be connected to the device, while watching TV or browsing the internet.
It is extremely important to start this three steps tooth mobility treatment before the vertical tooth mobility begins to be freely noticed. If the mobility of the tooth is only horizontal we can treat it in time. Schedule a free consultation in one of the dental clinics from Europe.
