Implant Socket Debridement

May 18, 2023

Using the dental laser from Waterlase for socket debridement. The precise and effective debridement operations made possible by this cutting-edge technology encourage optimal healing and better patient results.

Our first step in the Socket Debridement procedure is to use a curette to remove apical granulation tissue within the socket. With the Waterlase laser, we can perform this task with precision and control. Positioning the tip parallel to the socket walls, we carefully remove the granulation tissue using a gentle circular motion.

To ensure thorough debridement, we probe the socket to detect any remaining granulation tissue. This step allows us to identify and remove any lingering tissue that may impede proper healing.

Next, with the laser tip positioned at a 45-degree angle, we de-epithelialize a 5mm circumference around the socket opening. This process helps to create a clean and healthy environment for healing.

We carefully create bleeding spots on the inside surface of the socket to encourage bleeding and hasten healing. The earliest phases of the healing process require the creation of a blood clot, which is encouraged by this step.

Precision and controlled energy delivery capabilities of the Waterlase laser enable effective socket debridement, eliminating tissue debris and fostering a clean environment for optimum recovery.

Patients can anticipate improved recovery and a lower risk of problems after the socket debridement surgery. The minimally invasive technique used by the Waterlase laser reduces harm to the surrounding tissues, which improves patient comfort both during and after the surgery.
