Wavelength-Optimized Periodontal Therapy (WPT)

Flapless Perio Surgery with New Attachment using LightWalker's Gold-Standard Nd:YAG Laser

What is Wavelength-optimized Periodontal Therapy (WPT™)?

WPT™* is a minimally invasive periodontal disease therapy combining dentistry’s two best laser wavelengths: Er:YAG and Nd:YAG to significantly enhance treatment success rates and shorten recovery times.

How Does WPT Work?

The WPT approach enables wavelength-optimized treatments for periodontal therapy, which create the optimal conditions for healing periodontal tissues. What is more, WPT prevents infection and promotes reduction in pocket depths.

The procedure is performed in three simple steps:

  1. Step 1: The Nd:YAG laser removes the diseased epithelial lining of the periodontal pocket and improves access to the root surface.
  2. Step 2: The Er:YAG is used to thoroughly remove microbial biofilm and calculus from the root surface.
  3. Step 3: The Nd:YAG laser energy is used to coagulate and helps to form a stable fibrin clot.

Optimizing Dentistry’s Two Best Laser Wavelengths

Utilizing both Er:YAG and Nd:YAG laser wavelengths in a treatment makes optimum use of the unique laser-tissue interaction characteristics of each wavelength. For example, Nd:YAG laser energy is superior for coagulation and deep disinfection while Er:YAG is uniquely efficient at gently removing the infected surface tissue and calculus from the root surface. Combined, they can dramatically improve the outcome of laser assisted treatments, guaranteeing maximum safety and efficacy.

Why is LightWalker Perfect for WPT?

LightWalker combines dentistry’s two best wavelengths Er:YAG and Nd:YAG in one system. This allows the practitioner to quickly and conveniently switch between Er:YAG and Nd:YAG while performing WPT.

The WPT approach, available only with LightWalker, gives general dentists the confidence to treat their patients’ moderate to severe periodontal disease the laser way, without scalpels and sutures. With LightWalker this has never been simpler. Its easy-to-use touch screen offers a menu of preprogrammed periodontal treatments. Pick the treatment and the laser automatically sets the optimum starting parameters.

Exclusive Advantages of WPT for You and Your Patients

WPT is easy for any dentist to perform and has an unsurpassed treatment success rate compared to conventional surgical methods. With easy-to-follow protocols and at-the-touch-of-a-button treatment settings, practitioners are able to treat patients who they previously had to refer out to specialists, with confidence and high success rates.

WPT is the most patient-friendly treatment of periodontal disease. The procedure is fast, minimally invasive, there are no scalpels or sutures and bleeding is minimal.
