LiteTouch™ Er:YAG laser phototherapy can help in achieving complete eradication of bacteria inside the periodontal pocket. The Photo- thermal and Photo- mechanical properties of the laser are used for destabilizing the microbial biofilm and eliminating the bacteria. The laser energy can also be used for calculus removal and ablation of granulation tissue.
The periodontal therapy with LiteTouch™ laser has various beneficial effects, such as: no damage to the periodontal ligament and cementum or the surrounding bone and gingiva, no thermal effects and no damage to the tissue’s vascularization. LiteTouch™ laser is suitable for periodontal therapy of patients with systemic diseases because it reduces the incidence of bacteraemia during pocket debridement.
LiteTouch™ laser is an ideal instrument to perform periodontal microsurgery. With the same Laser it is possible to cut soft tissue, ablate and sculpt bone in a minimal invasive mode without trauma to the surrounding tissue and with less infections and inflammatory complications. The Laser energy is well absorbed by the water of the superficial tissue layers and thus does not penetrate or scatter deeply into tissue. The good superficial absorption together with the low thermal effect guarantees rapid and favorable healing.
