Abstract: Laser technology in pediatric dentistry is a viable treatment modality for children and adolescents. Diode laser has one of the most versatile ranges of wavelengths available due to the number of different therapies that can be performed in several tissues. They provide a comfortable and stress-free environment to the pedodontist and child by offering an excellent haemostatic effect, easy application, reduced pain, swelling and the use of post-operative antibiotics. The aim of this paper is to review the various diode laser applications in pediatric dentistry.
