I think it have a mechanical approach but not bacteriostatic as a diode laser might have (and by the way a diode laser can be only 6000 euros and not 80,000). Thank you!

New Medical Development and its Application to Dentistry

A new development in medicine allows the removal of biofilm. Biofilm is a protective phenomena that is developed by bacteria for reasons of self preservation. In the existence of life for every insult there is a natural counter reaction. Without penetrating the biofilm the destruction of bacteria becomes a challenge. This new development is of great significance in dentistry in providing good and meaningful periodontal hygiene procedures. The other potential benefit is treatment of peri-implantitis. Hopefully this new innovation will be implemented very soon and we can learn first hand how it impacts periodontal health and disease.

Why dental research leads to gadgets?

How often do we see new developments in dentistry that relate to biological research that provides new ideas in treatment of decay and periodontal conditions. My answer:  not very often if ever, dentistry benefits from medical research but is taught in schools unaffiliated with medical schools. Dentistry despite the doctorate degree bestowed on graduates of dental schools comes across as a craft and less as a health science oriented profession.  The reason for my question is to wake up the dental community to the fact that something is wrong with dentistry in the way it is taught and practiced. Because of the lack of its own scientific background everything resorts to mechanical approach. Obviously this is not always the case but often enough to consider analysis of the present status. I would expect many disagreements but they are all welcomed to generate attention to the way we think, practice and study.
