Dr. Paul Fotek in Jupiter offers Holistic treatment to help heal various forms of periodontal and bone infections as well as minimize foreign element immunologic response. Some of our many holistic treatment options include the following:
Dr. Paul Fotek practices with a mindset that gum health, oral health, and whole-body health are integrally related. All inflammatory conditions of the body have common inflammatory mechanisms of breakdown and repair. All modes of periodontal therapy are a means of re-establishing a healthy oral state, including retention of teeth and supporting bone.It also positively influences healing in other areas of the body by reducing the source of chronic infection. Periodontitis or gum disease is primarily an immune response to the presence of pathologic bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi growing under the gums. Contemporary periodontal therapy attempts to address this infection by reducing microbes and their toxic byproducts, which circulate within the gums and reach vital organs such as the kidneys, heart, and brain. By utilizing a holistic approach through a combination of contemporary bacterial elimination, laser gum decontamination along with a holistic method of ozone antimicrobial therapy, your gum health, and overall health can be appropriately re-established and maintained.
Numerous patients cannot tolerate metal or who refuse to place any metal parts in their bodies, including metal or titanium implants. Dr. Paul Fotek offers Ceramic dental implants, often referred to as Zirconia implants. Zirconia is a very strong non-metallic biocompatible material that does not corrode over time and is resistant to bacteria.Unlike metal that is grey in color, zirconia resembles tooth color, which provides a superior esthetic outcome. Ceramic implants can also be used for bridges, crowns, and to retain dentures.
Why not use the power of oxygen into promoting, healing, and elimination of harmful microbes? Ozone (O3) is a powerful, naturally occurring substance that is truly broad-spectrum with no toxicity or side effects. Ozone in therapeutic doses (ozone gas or ozonated water) helps tissue health regeneration through the elimination of pathogens and periodontal disease.
Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)
Use your body’s healing potential and get a jump start on healing. PRF uses the growth factors found in your blood, concentrates the substances needed for wound healing while removing the cells that do not take part in recovery. The process of obtaining PRF focused the fibrin matrix in which platelet cytokines, growth factors, and cells needed for healing and may be released directly into the wound after a certain time.It also can serve as a resorbable membrane that promotes blood clotting. Autologous (meaning coming from you) PRF is considered to be a healing biomaterial and presently is utilized in various dentistry disciplines, including extraction sites, bone healing, and bone regeneration.
Cavitation is used to describe various forms of bone lesions that appear both as empty holes in the jawbones and holes filled with dead or infected bone. These bone holes may contain pathogenic bacteria and toxins that inhibit blood supply and bone healing. It is necessary to adequately clean the bone following a tooth extraction to prevent cavitation formation.However, once bone cavitation has been found, surgery is required to remove the dead and toxic bone properly. The key to bone healing and regeneration is removing the necrotic tissue and promoting new bone regeneration.
Laser DecontaminationStudies have shown that Laser Decontamination reduces bacterial counts from billions of CFU (colonies forming units) to hundreds of CFU’s. This will reduce or eliminate the occurrence of bacteremias. At the same time bacteria is being eliminated, the laser will also biostimulate new blood vessels, collagen, gum attachment, and bone regeneration
Nu Calm Therapy
NuCalm® is a non-chemical system that helps your brain relax and suspends the mind allowing your body to heal. NuCalm uses biochemistry, physics, and neurophysiology to rapidly and reliably relax brain and body functions during treatment. The more anxious or stressed you are, the more profound the NuCalm effect will be.
Sedation dentistry or conscious sedation, as it is often referred uses medication to help patients relax and reduce their anxiety during surgical procedures. It is often referred to as “sleep dentistry,” although that’s not entirely accurate. Patients are not always fully asleep, as they would be under general anesthesia.It is very safe and has fewer side effects compared to general anesthesia. Sedation can be used for everything from invasive procedures to a simple tooth cleaning. Dr. Fotek is certified and licensed to perform moderate conscious sedation.
