BOGDAN VLADILA, EDWIN SEVER BECHIR USE OF THERMOFORMING ETHYLENE ACETATE FOR AN INNOVATIVE DEVICE relied on conventional mechanical, anti-infective modalities, followed by a range of regenerative procedures. An innovative medical device, using thermoforming ethylene acetate base, with an electromagnetic applicator, homologated with CE mark in class 2a, was used in the treatment of second degree teeth mobility. The affected areas were exposed to a precise, totally atraumatic and noninvasive electromagnetic field. The preliminary study on 10 subjects was performed with this medical device, using a standard protocol of 30 exposures of 2 h each, on the affected area. Subjects were both male and female, aged between 20-70 years, in healthy state and having a good oral hygiene status. After 2 months, the results were recorded by testing the mobility of the affected teeth, by measuring the periodontal pockets depth and by comparing the radiographs effectuated before and after the treatment. The results were assessed and proved the appreciable reduction of teeth mobility, the reduction of periodontal pockets depth and bone regeneration in the regions exposed to the electromagnetic applicator. The conclusions of this preliminary study recommend this innovative medical device for the use in the healing of periodontal lesions as noninvasive and atraumatic therapy.
