Dr. Fabrice Baudot offers a new approach for treating periodontal pockets in his article “The Periodontal Pocket: Alternative treatment with Er:YAG LASER and PRF”. Using the LiteTouch™ Er:YAG Dental Laser Dr. Baudot recommends to descend layer by layer and selectively remove the inflammatory infiltrate, via tissue micro-ablation along the internal wall of the gingival pocket. This process cleans the wound through a space of about 1mm throughout the full depth of the pocket to the bone. The LiteTouch™ Er:YAG Dental Laser is then also used to decontaminate the root surface and flush the periodontal pocket.
Dr. Baudot concludes that this alternative treatment for periodontal pockets is a result of High technology and progressed knowledge in microbiology and tissue engineering, pushing the boundaries imposed by conventional protocols.
