    BIOLASE announces groundbreaking REPaiR periodontal protocol at Europerio 8

    The periodontitis regimen is a step-by-step protocol for using an ER,Cr:YSGG laser to assist in the management of moderate and severe chronic periodontitis.

    BIOLASE, Inc., a global leader in dental lasers, announced its groundbreaking REPaiR periodontal protocol was part of the scientific programme at Europerio 8, the world's leading conference in periodontology and implant dentistry.

    REPaiR, regenerative Er,Cr: YSGG periodontitis regimen, was developed by a team of leading periodontists from around the world in conjunction with BIOLASE and is supported by clinical research and meaningful patient outcomes. The REPaiR protocol is said to be the first definitive step-by-step protocol for using an Er,Cr:YSGG laser to assist in the management of moderate and severe chronic periodontitis. REPaiR can be applied for total mouth periodontal treatment or in a site-specific manner.

    Presentation of the REPaiR protocol to members of the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP) reportedly supports the prestigious group's awareness initiative. The EFP is strongly advocating that periodontal disease should be acknowledged as a major public health issue and for all dental and health professionals to act in the prevention, early diagnosis and effective treatment of periodontal disease in order to combat the devastating oral and general health effects for the individual and society.

    "What the EFP is doing in terms of leading the world in addressing periodontal disease is phenomenal. They have gone as far as creating a manifesto as a call to action to address this pressing global health concern. That I am able to participate and contribute to this movement for greater public health is extremely meaningful to me," stated Samuel B. Low, D.D.S., M.S., M.Ed., professor emeritus, University of Florida, College of Dentistry, past president of the American Academy of Periodontology and a principle developer of REPaiR.

    Dr. Rana Al-Falaki, BDS, MFDS RCSI, MClinDent; MRD RCS, a leading London periodontist presented the REPaiR protocol. Additionally, Dr. Samuel B. Low presented on the topic entitled "Innovative Closed Crown Lengthening with Micro Invasive Laser."

    Compared to conventional methods employed to treat periodontitis, these speakers will present findings that support that the minimally invasive REPaiR laser protocol offers significant advantages, including: 

    • Reduces pain and discomfort compared to conventional treatment
    • Promotes more rapid healing
    • Promotes cementum mediated periodontal ligament new-attachment to the root surface in the absence of long junctional epithelium
    • Expands treatment options for preserving tissue and bone
       

    The triennial conference, organized by the European Federation of Periodontology, occurred in London, June 3 - 6, 2015, and attracted leading periodontists from more than 29 European countries.
