Er:YAG laser debridement efficiency on the different types of implant–abutment connections!
This ex-vivo study aimed to evaluate the implant temperature increase and possible damage to implant surface during implants’ debridement using Er:YAG laser. The removal of inflamed tissues from peri-implant pocket using Er:YAG laser is crucial in determining a significant clinical benefit. Even more important is to do it without any damage to the implant surface.
In this study, the authors debrided 3 different implant–abutment connections with 3 different fluences of the Er:YAG laser.
