Landmark Studies


Minimally invasive Waterlase REPAIR™ protocols achieve superior patient reported outcomes (less swelling, bruising, and bleeding) and faster procedure times — with equivalent clinical results to the latest open flap techniques.

Results supported by a landmark, first-of-its-kind, blind study designed by The McGuire Institute to meet stringent AAP Best Evidence Consensus recommendations.

REPAIR Perio™ was developed by Periodontists as a minimally invasive treatment option for managing periodontally compromised patients. Utilizing the Waterlase and patented Radial Firing Perio Tip™ (RFPT), REPAIR Perio provides a safe, effective laser treatment protocol that patients accept.

  • Minimally invasive protocol supported by clinical evidence and scientific research
  • Treat site specific or full mouth cases for greater flexibility and convenience in treatment planning
  • Versatile YSGG laser ideal for comprehensive clinical use on soft and hard tissue
  • Cleared for gentle removal of subgingival calculus
  • FDA Cleared for cementum-mediated periodontal ligament new-attachment to the root surface in the absence of long junctional epithelium
REPAIR Implant


Successfully managing peri-implantitis is more important than ever

REPAIR Implant™ provides clinicians a scientifically advanced method to assist with the growing threat of peri-implantitis. Utilizing the Waterlase® and patented Radial Firing Perio Tips™ (RFPT), and Side Firing Tips™ (SFT), REPAIR Implant provides a minimally invasive and easy way to work on metal implants.

Results supported by first-of-its-kind human histologic study published in Official Journal of The Academy of Osseointegration. View Here.

  • Easy subgingival access to implant surface and in-between threads, without reflecting a flap
  • Treat site specific or full mouth cases for greater flexibility in treatment planning
  • Cooling water and laser interaction effectively debride the implant surface without damaging or significantly affecting the surface temperature of the implant
  • Gentle removal of granulation tissue associated with implant disease

Clinical Study

Human Histologic Evaluations of the Use of Er,Cr:YSGG Laser to Decontaminate an Infected Dental Implant Surface in Preparation for Implant Reosseointegration

Myron Nevins, Stefano Parma Benfenati, Primo Galletti, Andrei Zuchi, Cosmin Sava, Catalin Sava, Mihaela Trifan, Andriano Piattelli, Giovanna Iezzi, Chia-Yu Chen, David M Kim, Isabella Rocchietta

This investigation was designed to evaluate the reestablishment of bone-to-implant contact on infected dental surfaces following decontamination with Er,Cr:YSGG laser and reconstructive therapy.
