Lares offers laser education materials

Lares Research is now featuring a video animation of the company's wavelength-optimized periodontal therapy (WPT) procedure on its website, the company announced.

The WPT method allows the clinician using the Lares Powerlase AT laser to treat periodontal disease. Utilizing both Nd:YAG and Er:YAG wavelengths in a periodontal disease treatment protocol makes best use of the unique laser/tissue interaction characteristics of each wavelength, the company said.

The new animation on the website depicts the major steps in the WPT protocol, including treatment of the diseased epithelial lining of the pocket with Nd:YAG laser energy and removal of calculus from the root surface with Er:YAG laser energy.

The Lares website also has a library of live patient clinical videos that demonstrate various laser procedures, including apicoectomies, cavity preparations, root canal cleaning and debridement, frenectomies, implant recoveries, and crown lengthening.
