Periodontitis treatment with medical leeches

Periodontitis is a fairly widespread disease in which periodontal tissues become inflamed. It carries a very unpleasant sensation and reduces the quality of life: there is bleeding and swelling of the gums, loosening of the teeth, pain when biting and chewing food. Naturally, the first thing is to urgently contact a specialist in the clinic.

After examination, the doctor will select the correct treatment. It can be traditional:special therapeutic toothpastes;
medicines
massage;
lotions and rinses;
medical brushing;
physiotherapy.
And it may be unconventional, but very effective and common at the present time.

Periodontitis treatment with medical leeches
Hirudotherapy is a method of alternative medicine, the treatment of human diseases with the help of a medical leech. Many are familiar with this method and know what hirudotherapy is, but do not even suggest that they can be used in dental practice of various profiles (therapeutic, orthopedic and surgical).

But this method found its main application in diseases of the oral mucosa and in the treatment of patients with various degrees of gum disease (periodontal disease – treatment of periodontitis and gingivitis). The method can be applied for prophylactic or therapeutic purposes.

The effectiveness of hirudotherapy in the treatment of periodontitis has been proven and confirmed by a number of studies. This treatment gives a longer healing effect than traditional methods. Symptoms of the disease disappear for several years, and sometimes even do not resume at all. While with normal procedures, you will forget about the disease for only six months or a year.
