The use of lasers to treat periodontal and peri-implant diseases: an overview of the mechanism, efficacy, and advantages of YSGG laser
The use of lasers has gained tremendous popularity in recent years among the scientific community and patients.
Various dental laser wavelengths have emerged as adjunct tools to treat periodontitis and peri-implantitis. In particular, YSGG with a wavelength of 2,780 nm has shown enhanced disinfection, promotion of wound healing, and histologic regeneration around both ailing teeth and implants. The REPAIR protocols are minimally invasive procedures that may result in less post-operative discomfort, faster treatment times, and comparable clinical outcomes to the traditional non-surgical and surgical techniques. The presentation will highlight an unbiased review of YSGG laser’s mechanism, clinical indications, advantages and disadvantages, and currently available scientific evidence.
