Abstract

Supersaturation of hydroxyapatite is very important in order to preserve the homeostasis of mineral metabolism in the oral cavity. This indicates to the ability of saliva to preserve the homeostasis of the tooth tissues. So it is very important to use inhalations and rinses with Tskhaltubo mineral water. It is the alpha radiation of radon contained in the water of Tskhaltubo that plays a very important role in the regulation of inflammatory processes and the preservation of homeostasis of the oral cavity. A lot of works have been published lately proving that these doses are characterized by the so-called "hormesis", so the object of our interest is to determine the mechanism of radon hormesis and its effects on preserving the homeostasis of mineral metabolism in the oral cavity. Inhalation with mineral water of Tskhaltubo and its use for rinsing in case of parodontitis leads to decrease and ultimately elimination of the developed inflammatory processes. Tests were conducted on 150 volunteers, 120 of which were sick and 30 were practically healthy (control). As a result of the research it was established that inhalations with mineral water of Tskhaltubo and its use for rinsing in case of parodontitis leads to decrease and ultimately elimination of the developed inflammatory processes of the oral cavity. The unique properties of the mineral water of Tskhaltubo are an important component of the treatment of parodontitis at the initial stage of the disease.
