OBJECTIVE: The aims of this study were (1) to conduct a literature search and systematically evaluate the additional therapeutic effects of pulsed Nd:YAG or diode laser use in patients with periodontitis, (2) to assess evidence supporting the additional benefit of laser-mediated periodontal treatment in conjunction with scaling and root planning (SRP) (not as monotherapy), and (3) to interpret the evidence presented in retrieved publications. BACKGROUND DATA: Opinions about the additional use of diode lasers in the nonsurgical treatment of plaque-induced periodontal lesions are conflicting...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the bactericidal effectiveness of using a fiber-less Er:YAG laser in the first stage of therapy for moderate chronic periodontitis and to compare it with conventional treatment. METHOD AND MATERIALS: Two quadrants from 20 patients with moderate chronic periodontitis were treated with Gracey curettes (control), and the contralateral two quadrants in each patient were treated using an Er:YAG laser with total power of 1...

UNLABELLED: The aim of this systematic review is to compare the clinical outcomes of lasers with other commonly applied detoxification methods for treating peri-implantitis. An electronic search of four databases and a hand search of peer-reviewed journals for relevant articles were conducted. Comparative human clinical trials and case series with ≥ 6 months of follow-up in ≥ 10 patients with peri-implantitis treated with lasers were included. Additionally, animal studies applying lasers for treating peri-implantitis were also included...

Soft tissue lasers are increasing in popularity among clinicians in part due to their potential value in preprosthetic gingival procedures. The ability of soft tissue lasers to control moisture and facilitate hemostasis appears particularly promising for clinicians excising gingival tissues, performing esthetic crown lengthening, and using resective techniques for gingival troughing--and these applications will grow as practitioners become more familiar with such technologies. This presentation highlights the use of the 810 nm diode laser for perio-restorative procedures in the anterior maxilla...

AIM: Comparing the efficacy of photoablative and photodynamic diode laser in adjunct to scaling -root planing (SRP) and SRP alone for the treatment of chronic periodontitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-six patients were studied. Maxillary left or right quadrants were randomly assigned to sham-laser treatment + SRP or laser + SRP. This consisted of photoablative intra/extra-pocket de-epithelization with diode laser (λ = 810 nm), followed by single SRP and multiple photodynamic treatments (once weekly, 4-10 applications, mean ± SD: 3...
