KöR: Discover the difference!
Aticle Banner Dental whitening treatment in Greenville SC at the holistic office of Palmer Distinctive Dentistry is as safe as it is effective, and it is sure to fit your lifestyle. Drs. John Palmer, Daniel Knause, and Debra Adams use the KöR Whitening System, which may be applied in office or from the comfort of home (with take-home trays). Unlike other whitening systems, the powerful KöR product is considered to be a permanent way to get a dazzling whiter smile.

What makes KöR so unique?

The color of your teeth is largely due to natural pigment and stain molecules, which become trapped in the tooth’s structure. The bigger the molecules, the more chromophores they contain. Chromophores are the part of each molecule responsible for its color. There is a direct relationship between the presence of chromophores and teeth that appear darker or more discolored.

How biological dentistry tackles periodontal disease
Periodontal disease is an infection which the Webster’s II New Riverside University Dictionary describes as “an invasion by pathogenic microorganisms of a bodily part in which the conditions are favorable for growth, production of toxins, and resulting injury to tissue.”

Periodontal disease is caused by protozoan, bacterial, viral or fungal pathogens. When it progresses and starts displaying clinical symptoms, it means the defenses of the body are being challenged, and that the immune system fails to protect the body from the invaders. High levels of proteolytic enzymes and endotoxins are produced by these periodontal disease pathogens. They are linked to serious health conditions including cardiovascular disease.

Periodontal disease is a chronic degenerative disease with long-term effects. It’s often refractory, meaning it will be active or not, depending on the effect that environmental or other risk factors like smoking have on it.

With advancements made in periodontal dentistry, treatment methods have also changed, with local and systemic risk factors, and causes and not just effects being taken into account. They aim to help patients achieve their best long-term periodontal health goals and increase their resistance to periodontal infections, rather than removing healthy body parts.

The methods used to detect the numbers and types of pathogens in treatments vary, from the basic clinical exam to phase contrast microscopes and DNA probes. There are medicines, and procedures which don’t rely on drugs for eliminating the infection. Ozone treatment, laser treatment, pocket irrigation, and nutritional support are a part of biological periodontal therapy.
