Dr Germanier was the Clinical Head Assistant of the department of Prosthodontics and TMJ Dysfunction Department at the University of Zurich in Switzerland and is the founder of the Swiss Dental Center of St-François in Lausanne in Switzerland. Dr Germanier developed a new system in perio-overdentures with composite caps and has been lecturing subjects such as the use of laser in dentistry, surgery, implantology and fixed prosthetics with biologically oriented preparation technique (BOPT) and CAD/CAM impressions. Dr Germanier practices dentistry at the highest standards and uses high tech systems in his daily clinical work.
Technology at the service of biology – Can laser substitute conventional techniques?
The different types of laser offer the possibility to do several treatments in the different dental fields such as conservative dentistry, fixed prosthetics, surgery, endodontics, periodontics, orthodontics, implantology, pedodontics with the great advantage to provide minimal invasive treatments.
The treatment of periodontitis and peri-implantitis represent today a huge challenge to many clinicians and the use of lasers offer today simple, efficient and conservative solutions.
In conjunction with other conventional techniques, laser can also improve the decontamination in the root and implant areas destroying the existing microorganisms and contribute to the stimulation of the cellular biology that improve the periodontal regeneration.
It is important to get to know the most innovative therapeutic concepts that are an excellent, simple and efficient alternative in the common practice and daily use that can help to resolve numerous problems.
