    • I appreciate your time in answering my questions. Will contact you by email.

    • The systemic component has nothing to do with Periolase. It is a program of my own from my own research that an MD friend of mine (works in the office)and I will be teaching this fall.

      It is vital to long term stability more that the initial response.

      And yes we do retest in 6 months as it affects dosages of treatment therapies.

      If you want more info, drop me an email at bltilasercat@yahoo.com.

    • Bltilasercat,

      "with blood testing. In doing this for several months now we have conclusively linked the systemic/oral link with gum disease and we have a protocol for correcting those problems and improving blood markers"

      Is this test part of the Periolase procedure and training? If I ask for this test will other periolase dentist know what I am referring too.

      Do you also test after the periolase program has been completed to varify an improvement in blood markers?

      Last, where does root planing and scaling fit in??

      Thanks,
      E.H.

    • Ehwest,

      There are several reasons why a tooth can be loose. It can be because of bone deterioration, or it can be because the tooth is being bullied during function and parafunction. In other words the tooth is being rocked around and can be loose with or without bone loss. Usually if the tooth is being traumatized there will be some bone loss along with the looseness, but it does not necessarily have to be so.

      If your tooth is loose because of bone loss then your dentist needs to determine why you are losing the bone. Typically periodontal bone loss occurs due to one or all of five different reasons. Some of those reasons are local oral factors and some of it can be systemic problems. In our office we determine the systemic reasons for periodontal disease with blood testing. In doing this for several months now we have conclusively linked the systemic/oral link with gum disease and we have a protocol for correcting those problems and improving blood markers.

      From my experience, when I see isolated bone loss (loose teeth) I think in terms of bite overload as the primary cause. When I see generalized gum disease, I think in terms of systemic reaction to the bacterial insult as the primary reason. When attacking the whole problem along with the Nd:YAG laser, we are getting incredible results.

      Tell your doctor to look at the Ray Yukna research on the Millennium web site. That is about as �real hard noise authorative� as it gets.

      I hope that helps. You may want to ask Millennium for a referral. They refer me patients on a weekly basis just from inquiries off their web site.

    • ehwest,

      I saw your post from earlier this morning, but have not had time to get back with you. I will be able to give you my advice in about an hour or so. Nice to see another up day!

    • there is no proof the periolase or any laser really works (grows attachment tissue) for gum disease problems. I can't wait any longer for either of them to get informed, but I would like to see at least one of them get with it, in the event I have a future problem. They claim surfacing and scaling is the first and last resort. They will use a product called �Arrest� or a sister product to it, but don�t seem to have a lot of faith in that, either.

      They want to see real hard nose authoritative studies that proves the laser will give worthwhile results in gum disease.

      I've got a loose tooth, please comment on your results regarding the laser with this type of problem or email me at EH98765432@SOCAL.RR.com or both

      Thanks,
      E.H.

    • IJ,

      I don't know if Biolase would be violating any patents. It seems to me that if there were not some patents protecting the Periolase, that other companies would be building the same adabtability into their systems as well. So in answer to your question, my guess is Millennium must have some patent protection.

      I don't know if selling a stand alone Nd:YAG would be a big deal, but I think a combo unit would be of interest to me. I don't recall suggesting they launch an Nd:YAG, but if I did, they appear to already have one any way, even though they don't seem to push it too much.

      What's with ichobodhere? : )

    • Yes, I would be nice if Grant could concentrate on sales, but he does have a sale manager and will have to delegate. When one looks at the gross numbers we know, it doesn't appear that volume is a problem.

    • I did not say that the sales force was working on the accounting problem.

      I said management's time was being spent on it.

      If it weren't management would be more closely attuned to sales force issues, motivation, management, individual performance objectives, training, hiring, firing, marketing efforts, planning etc.

      Sales force needs guidance and leadership, and if Grant is spending all his time chasing down receipts from 2001 and 2002, he's got his eyes aways from the ball. IMO.
