Mariya Miteva  | Stefan Peev  | Ivailo Hristov 
Abstract: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of a diode laser with nonsurgical periodontal therapy on chronic periodontitis. Fifteen patients with chronic periodontitis were treated by conventional periodontal treatment using ultrasonic devices and hand instruments and fifteen patients with additional use of diode laser Elexxion claros, fiber 300 m, pulse output 1, 0 W, pulse freq. CW, pulse duration CW, avg. power 1 W. All groups showed statistically significant improvements in terms of clinical attachment level (CAL) gain and periodontal pocket depth (PPD) reduction compared to baseline. The obtained data suggested that SRP and adjunctive laser therapy have significant short-term benefits in the treatment of chronic periodontitis.
