Photothermal Therapy (PTT)
Photothermal therapy (PTT) is a pioneering alternative to standard treatment methods which is as gentle as it is effective. Due to the dye indocyanine green, perio green® works faster than any other method and requires the least effort: indocyanine green attaches itself to plasma proteins which occur in membranes of bacterial cells and dyes them. When irradiated with light of a specific wave-length (810 nm = standard diode laser from elexxion), the high absorption of ICG leads to local heat, which damages the cell wall of the bacteria so seriously that the bacterial cell dies.
- Dyeing and sensitisation of all bacteria
- Activation of the active ingredient by laser light
- Destruction of the dyed bacteria
Perio Green – arm yourself with the teeth against bacteria
perio green. is based on a photothermal principal which effectively destroys bacteria in biofilm, periodontal pockets, implants, etc.
- Chronic, nonsurgical periodontal therapy to supplement the removal of hard deposits (root scaling and planing)
- Peri-implantitis therapy
