What is the treatment?
However, there is no need to panic! The treatment can be either conservative with the application of ultrasound, hand tools and root scraping, or by surgical placement of a bone graft.
Gingivoplasty is a surgical removal or addition of gingival tissue and applies to cases with severe periodontitis/gum disease, and when all other conservative therapeutic methods do not work.
In Kontopanos Dental Care we inform and train both parents & children appropriately with oral hygiene techniques and instructions to avoid gingivitis and tooth decay in early and permanent teeth.
The first visit should be scheduled when the early teeth arise. It is essential for parents to understand the importance of first’s teeth because not only they help children to chew & speak properly but they maintain the necessary space that the permanent teeth will need to raise.

Athletic dentistry-Sports and oral health
Nowadays more and more people are attracted to sports they have become essential part of our everyday life.
Children and adults of different ages engage in some sports activity and although sports activities are pleasant and beneficial to our body, unfortunately they may pose a risk of injuries.
Athletic Mouth Guards
Dynamic sports which need a physical contact between the players like basketball, football, karate, mixed martial arts, volleyball may cause face and teeth injuries. Mouth guards are the most appropriate method for preventing future facial damage. A mouth guard is a protective device for the mouth that covers the teeth and gums to prevent and reduce injury to the teeth, arches, lips and gums.
There are 3 types:
Prefabricated mouth guards
Partially adaptable mouth guards
Unfortunately, these kinds of guards cannot provide complete protection as it is not custom made to apply perfectly to the teeth of each athlete.
Custom made mouth guards
In our practices you only need 2 sessions to make an athletic mouth guard custom made for maximum tooth protection from injuries during your sporting activity.
