Laser - As an Alternative or Adjunctive Treatment in Periodontics - A Review Article
Dr Navin Sahu, Dr S. C. Bhoyar
The use of lasers for treatment has become a common phenomenon in the medical field. Currently, numerous laser systems are available for dental use. Among the many lasers available, high power lasers such as Carbon Dioxide Laser (CO2), Neodymium-Doped Yttrium Aluminium Garnet (NdYAG) and Diode lasers can be used in periodontics. The use of these lasers is limited to gingivectomy, frenectomy and similar soft tissue procedures including the removal of melanin pigmentation of gingiva. Recently, Erbium Yttrium Aluminium Garnet (Er YAG) and Erbium, Chromium doped Yttrium Scandium Gallium Garnet (Er, Cr YSGG) lasers are used for scaling, root debridement, cutting, shaving, contouring and resection of oral osseous tissues.
