Lyme Disease Treatment

Lyme disease is a multi system inflammatory disease. Neurologic, articular and cardiac manifestations may follow early infection if left untreated. While the B. burgdorferi bacterium does not make toxins or cause direct tissue damage, a person may experience local inflammation as a result from host response mechanisms.

I could have never imagined how life changing my appointment with Dr Anna Maria Yiannikos could be. I have found my smile that I thought I lost. Thank you for giving me back my confidence.

Anna Archontidou

Since childhood my fear has always been the visits to the dentist, never the less the fear continued up until my first visit with Dr. Anna Maria Yiannakos. I was literally shaking with fear. After my appointment, everything chaged for the better. I now actually look forward to my visits! I feel that I have made new friends and completely at home when I am there. This has been a life changing experience for me. I am free of fear and love my smile.


Lyme disease, also known as Lyme borreliosis, is caused by the tick-borne spirochete bacterium Borrelia burgdorfer.

Oral Symptoms of Lyme Disease

Tick borne Lyme disease can cause:

Facial and dental pain (tooth ache)
Facial nerve palsy
Temporomandibular (jaw) joint pain
Masticatory (chewing) muscle pain
Other oral symptoms can be:

Dry mouth
Tooth sensitivity
Pulpitis, or the oral inflammation of dental pulp
Bell’s palsy, or partial facial paralysis
Involvement of the saliva producing glands may manifest as brief inflammation of the gland
When performing dental procedures on a patient with Lyme disease, the effects that can precipitate must also be considered.

Orotox testing

At Yiannikos Centre of Holistic Dentistry we offer Orotox testing for our patients in order to evaluate whether pathogenic bacteria are present inside the root canals of dead or endodontically-treated teeth (especially if no laser is to be performed for root canal sterilization during a root canal treatment).

These bacteria release toxins which are harmful for the body. With Orotox testing we can detect these toxic bacteria and determine whether we should extract an endodontically treated tooth or not.

Biocompatible restorations and amalgam filling removal

Toxicity from metals in the mouth may also contribute to Lyme Disease symptoms. Therefore, when you need to get a cavity treated, it’s best to choose biocompatible metal-free restorations and/or protocols that will remove any metals in the oral cavity with absolute safety.

This is the reason why we use the SMART Protocol technique to remove any silver fillings that you might have.

It ensures the safest process from the beginning to the end for you – OUR patient.

Our Centre exclusively uses, for fillings and for the teeth’s restoration after amalgam fillings’ removal, the worldwide first restoration material, the Admira Fusion VOCO which does NOT contain:

Bis-GMA, TEGDMA, GlyDMA and HEMA (cytotoxic substances that are responsible for allergies and damages to the human body and also to the environment)
Additionally, Admira Fusion has a pure ceramic base and it’s absolutely biocompatible.
