Abstract

Background: In the last decade, the use of lasers (light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation) has occupied part of the dialogue within periodontology and oral surgery because of several proposed advantages. Laser uses produces less postoperative swelling, reduces inflammation and is also relatively painless. In the arena of periodontology, laser use as an adjunct to non-surgical therapy was demonstrated to enhance periodontal health. The present study was done to highlight these facts and to add over the previous researches. Material And Methods: A total of 50 patients with generalized chronic moderate to severe periodontitis with pocket probing depth (PD) ≥5 mm were selected for a split-mouth study. Flap surgery with adjunctive diode laser irradiation was performed in the test quadrant while routine OFD was done in the control quadrant. Clinical parameters including PD, plaque index, and gingival index were recorded at baseline, 3 months and 6 months following treatment. Result: All clinical parameters significantly improved after therapy without any statistically significant difference between the two groups for any of the parameters. The results of the present study indicate that diode laser used as an adjunct to in OFD did not significantly enhance the treatment outcome. Conclusion: Since there was a significant clinical improvement in case of gingival inflammation, it can be safely and effectively used to achieve the same and can aid in tissue healing.
