New Minimally Invasive Periodontal Disease Treatment Optimizing Dentistry’s Two Best Laser Wavelengths

19 February 2010

In a first treatment phase the Nd:YAG laser is used to remove the diseased epithelial lining and improve access to the root service. The AT Fidelis' Er:YAG laser energy is then used to accurately and thoroughly remove calculus from the root surface. The last step is using the Nd:YAG laser to coagulate and leave a stable fibrin clot.

Wavelength-optimized Periodontal TherapyTM creates the optimal conditions for healing periodontal disease by removing the diseased epithelial lining of the periodontal pocket, removing calculus from the root surface and sealing the pocket after treatment with a stable fibrin clot. Treatment acceptance is extremely high considering the scalpel/suture treatment alternative.

Fotona offers a complete range of procedure optimized fiber tips and handpieces for its AT/HT Fidelis line of highest performance dental laser treatment platforms.
