Alveolitis – is one of the most common complications in surgical dentistry after tooth extraction and their roots, accompanied by symptoms, the leading of which are pain in the alveoli with irradiation and partial or complete decay of the blood clot. The aim of our research is to study the clinical efficacy of antihomotoxic drugs and colloidal silver in patients with inflammatory processes in the alveolar tooth socket.
Material and methods
58 patients with inflammatory process in the alveoli after extraction of teeth or their roots (38 - female, 20 - male), aged 18-60 years, were examined with the help of clinical and microbiological, cytological study. The main group consisted of 38 patients who were prescribed complex drug therapy after diagnosis of alveolitis. 20 patients were referred to the control group where allopathic treatments were used.
The main observation group in 93% ± 0.07% of patients with serous form alveolitis already on the 2nd day disappear pain, redness, swelling of the soft tissues. Gradually, the function of the mandible and the temperature response were restored. In purulent alveolitis, the function of the jaw was restored on days 3 and 4. Patients in the control group experienced a slow course of the inflammatory process in the wound, a late decrease in local pain response, swelling and hyperemia of the wound edges. Jaw function recovery averaged 3.4 ± 0.1 days longer.
The complex effect of drug and surgical treatment of alveolitis was studied. The combined use of colloidal silver, Traumeel® S, Polymic®, makes it possible to eliminate the inflammatory process in the alveoli faster and to reduce the period of active disease up to 2 - 3 days.
