A new and excellent no-surgery solution is here!
Recently developed (patent pending [USPTO]) dental protocol offers a conservative, lasting and wonderful non-invasive alternative to gum graft and TMD surgeries.
Those suffering with gum, bone, bite and jaw joint problems pose challenges to dentists, periodontists, prosthodontists and orthodontists. Presently, the options range from minimally invasive to significant surgeries.
PerioComplete™ Arch Reformulation Therapy (ART) is the first periodontal aligner protocol designed for those previously deemed unsuitable to receive traditional orthodontic or sequential clear aligner therapy (e.g., Invisalign®, ClearCorrect®).
What makes periodontal aligners so successful?
- Healthy gums (reduced accumulation of plaque and calculus) are the top priority.
- Stability, midline correction and asymmetry reduction are integrated within the treatment design.
- Joint pain and discomfort [temporomandibular joint (TMJ) discomfort (TMD)] are greatly reduced.
- Supporting bone is modified (made larger and smaller) to accommodate the teeth.
- That’s the reverse of the precepts for traditional and sequential clean aligner orthodontic treatment designs (where teeth are modified [shaved down or removed] to accommodate the bone).
- Two essential measures of periodontal aligners, gingival (gum) health and long-lasting stability are not factors used to measure whether traditional orthodontic treatments or orthodontic sequential aligner therapies were successful.
Gingival graft surgery was one of the recommended dental treatments to help correct the gum problems which showed an excessive amount of rooth.
Months into his PerioCompleteTM periodontal aligners arch reformulation therapy, there is already significant improvement to the health of the gums is obvious. Previously exposed roots are now covered with fresh gum tissues. The patient was thrilled to receive these results without having to undergo a periodontal surgery.
What makes ART with periodontal aligners so unique?
- The health of the gums (e.g., Gingival Health Levels I, II, III), not the positions of the teeth is the key indicator that confirms positive progress of the therapy has been achieved.
- The occlusion (bite) and overall stability are both programmed and expected to improve during the passive phase after the active portion of therapy has been successfully completed.
Arch Reformulation therapy with periodontal aligners is a new and excellent non-invasive dental option for many who possess periodontal disease, gum shrinkage or suffer from jaw pain. Having a robust alternative (patent pending) to surgical options is highly desirable for many patients and dental clinicians.
