Minimally invasive surgery is the order of the day in modern dentistry – particularly complex procedures such as root canal or peri-implantitis treatments call for gentle solutions as well as precise and safe methods. With the innovative Er:YAG laser AdvErL Evo, Morita has developed a highly versatile treatment option: the user- and patient-friendly unit emits electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength that is readily absorbed by water. Hence, AdvErL Evo allows numerous treatment options for different indications – be it for periodontal or complex endodontic, implant or oral surgical procedures.
In view of the fact that the radiation emitted by the AdvErL Evo Er:YAG laser has a wavelength of 2,940nm, precise and gentle treatments are possible with this laser treatment unit: the irradiation effect is limited to the surface of the tissue, which means that the energy does not penetrate deeper layers of tissue. This prevents coagulation of the tissue and ensures healthy bleeding, which, in turn, leads to quicker healing. In this way, AdvErL Evo allows gentle, virtually pain-free treatments without any development of heat or vibration and without any anesthesia. So, for example, the Er:YAG laser is suitable for removing necrotic tissue in periodontal pockets, removing subgingival calculus as part of a periodontal treatment, apicoectomies and removal of cysts/tumors in surgical procedures as well as treatment of peri-implantitis. In such treatments, both inflamed tissue and contaminated matter on the implant surface can be removed effectively and, moreover, without having any negative effects on osseointegration.
