The study was conducted at the McGuire Institute, and co-author John Gunsolley, DDS, and colleagues compared Biolase's Repair Perio process with the conventional minimally invasive surgical technique (MIST) treatment for moderate to severe generalized periodontitis. The study included 54 patients from five sites and six periodontists.
"The study unequivocally confirms that patient-reported outcomes were significantly better after laser procedures," Biolase President and CEO Todd Norbe said in a statement. "Using laser technology, periodontitis can now be treated -- with less pain and greater patient acceptance -- by both periodontists and general dentists alike."
