The effectiveness of a newly-developed Er:YAG laser with a fiber delivery system to remove subgingival calculus was examined in vitro. Fifty-three (53) periodontally-involved human extracted teeth with a band of subgingival calculus were used. Two experiments were conducted: in experiment 1, laser scaling was performed with water irrigation on a straight line and on a broad area, against the subgingival calculus at the energy levels of 10 to 120 mJ/pulse (3.5 to 42.4 J/cm2/pulse) and the pulse… CONTINUE READING
