Dr Harini Mitta
Being a periodontist, initially I used to do all the procedures with conventional technique (scalpel) and realized that laser is the game changer and new way of practicing dentistry. It has been almost 10 months since I started using PIOON laser and it has definitely not disappointed me so far considering its precision, less chair time, visibility in the surgical site, ability to coagulate and prevent profuse bleeding, fewer post-op visits and complications and higher profit margins by decreasing chair time. It reduces patient anxiety and stress as well and most importantly can treat borderline medically compromised patients, where conventional treatment is absolutely contraindicated. In short it is a win-win situation for both patients and dentists. Now I do most of the procedures including curettage, LANAP, frenectomy, vestibuloplasty, gingivectomy, depigmentation, esthetic crownlenghtening, excisions and operculectomy with laser. The added advantages with PIOON laser are the preset treatment procedures reduce the time for adjusting the settings, tutorial content provided helps me educate patients about the procedure and the TMJ handpiece, whitening hand piece and photobiomodulation handpiece. It is very compact and can be easily carried to any place and has good battery life.
I am glad I chose PIOON and got the opportunity to attend Dental laser training camp jointly organized with Gulf Laser Chapter affiliated with ALD. Dr.Walid’s session was par excellence. It was an elaborate and informative session where Dr Walid has given many inputs with clinical relevance. As a Periodontist I had some knowledge on some topics but the session has definitely benefited me. Most of the topics covered were clinically significant in day to day procedures. The fundamentals were explained in depth and all possible treatments with lasers were covered. The best part was the Laser practice management and Q & A session where Dr. Walid has patiently answered all the questions asked by the participants despite the fact that he was running short of time. Most importantly I learnt how to use TMJ handpiece and photobiomudulation handpiece. All in all this Dental laser training camp was totally worth attending.
