Γνωρίζετε ότι η περιοδοντίτιδα μπορεί να αυξήσει τον κίνδυνο καρκίνου του μαστού ; Πρόσφατη μελέτη της Αμερικάνικης Ένωσης για την έρευνα του καρκίνου, συμπεραίνει ότι οι μετεμμηνοπαυσιακές γυναίκες που πάσχουν από περιοδοντική νόσο έχουν 11% περισσότερες πιθανότητες να διαγνωστούν με καρκίνο του μαστού.


Dental veneers – also known as laminates – are used to cosmetically enhace the appearance of one or more teeth. Veneers are very thin , porcelain or resin shells that are customized for a desirable color and shape. They are bonded to the surface of the teeth to reshape broken, misshapen or irregular teeth, as well as provide a solution for discolored teeth that do not respond to traditional whitening treatments. Patients with veneers typically achieve a natural tooth appearance that is well-tolerated by the gums and also resistant to future stains.


Tooth extractions are routine dental procedures used to remove decayed, damaged or otherwise problematic teeth.

Dentists usually make the effort to preserve natural teeth, although sometimes extraction is necessary. Although the procedure is performed in a dentist’s office, it is considered surgery. Depending on which teeth are removed they may be replaced with a dental implant or another oral prosthetic.


Teeth whitening procedures are used to brighten the appearance of a patient’s smile. Professional teeth whitening services can be performed in an office setting or prescribed for take- home use by a patient.

Professional whitening uses stronger whitening agents that deliver faster and more effective and safe results.


Like a bridge, partial dentures rest on surrounding teeth to fill in the gaps where one or more teeth are missing. But unlike a bridge, partial dentures are fully removable by the wearer. Partials are alternatives to other types of dental prosthetics and are custom-made to blend in with each patient’s natural teeth. It takes a little time to adapt to a new partials, but many people find that they reclaim much of their original function and aesthetics with partial dentures in place.


Periodontitis, or gum disease, is a common infection that damages the soft tissue and bone supporting the tooth. Without treatment, the alveolar bone around the teeth is slowly and progressively lost.

The name “periodontitis” means “means inflammation around the tooth.” Microorganisms, such as bacteria, stick to the surface of the tooth and in the pockets surrounding the tooth, and they multiply. As the immune system reacts and toxins are released, inflammation occurs.



Root canal treatment is the procedure which is used to treat and preserve teeth with badly infected roots.

The pulp is the live portion of the tooth that extends into the root and contains nerve endings and tissues.

When it becomes infected, patients can experience pain swelling and tooth loss unless treated. Root canals treatment instruments remove the damaged parts of the tooth and infected root.

The organic portion of the tooth that remains may be restored using a crown that provides natural appearance and normal tooth function.


 Many patients associate root canals with pain and discomfort.

But local anesthetics and advancements in modern dentistry have made root canals highly tolerable procedures that are often no less comfortable than getting a standard filling. Upon completion, a restored tooth that has undergone a root canal will blend in with surrounding teeth.


What should I expect during my root canal treatment?

If you decide to undergo a root canal, the first step in your procedure will involve a local anesthetic. Once your tooth root is numb, the diseased portion of your tooth pulp will be removed and potentially treated for bacterial infection. The tooth will then be sealed and filled.




Dental implants are surgical grade root devices that support permanent prosthetics that manufactured permanently. These artificial roots are anchored in the bone beneath the gums where they become fused into the jaw. Then a crown is mounted at the top of the implant for a long lasting and natural looking smile. Many dentist and patients prefer dental implants because they offer the same function as natural teeth and also help prevent bone atrophy in the jaw. Dental implants may be used to replace a single missing or damaged tooth or restore an entire smile. In Chrysomilos Dental Clinic we place dental implants since 2001 with 95% long term success.
