LONDON, April 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Across the globe, gum disease – also known as periodontal disease – is one of the most common issues seen by dentists, with 10 percent of the population suffering from a severe form of the condition. This is perhaps unsurprising when you consider that our mouths contain as many as 700 different strains of bacteria; all it takes is some irregular or poor cleaning to cause plaque to build up and gum disease to subsequently take hold.

Left untreated, gum disease can lead to a number of problems, including bad breath, changes in taste and swollen or receding gums. It is even connected to illnesses such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. As such, it is essential that people speak out about suffering from the ailment and seek professional advice as soon as possible.

With this in mind, Zagreb Implant Dentistry is on a mission to remove the social stigma often associated with oral health. Its founder, Dr Goran Jovičević, explains the clinic’s approach to gum disease in the latest issue of European CEO magazine.

Depending on its severity, gum disease can be treated in a number of ways. If the inflammation is mild and superficial – an affliction commonly known as gingivitis – it can be dealt with through professional plaque and tartar removal. If it escalates to periodontitis, however, the team at Zagreb Implant Dentistry can use scaling and root planing to scrape the plaque and tartar build-up below the gums. For this, staff members use sophisticated ultrasonic instruments and curettes.

All of the clinic’s technology is cutting-edge, such as the BIOLASE Epic laser. This state-of-the-art diode laser enables greater effectiveness in combatting gum disease and gum recession, while treatments are also completed more quickly, with less pain and a faster healing time.

In addition, Jovičević uses the best-in-class 3Shape TRIOS intraoral scanner. This tool provides greater accuracy than conventional scanners, creating high-quality digital impressions in life-like colours that require fewer retakes.
