Title : Lasers in periodontal therapy- a critical review


Periodontal disease, an inflammatory disease caused by Periodontal pathogens leads to the destruction of the supporting structures of the teeth due to Host bacterial immune inflammatory reaction. Conventional non-surgical and surgical periodontal treatment has been performed for many years to treat Periodontal disease. Though successful, these procedures have certain limitations. In the last few decades lasers have emerged as a promising tool in Dental and Periodontal treatment. Lasers have several proposed advantages such as ablation, vaporization, pocket sterilization, and hemostasis. There are different lasers available for Periodontal procedures. Though many studies have shown promising results of lasers in non-surgical periodontal therapy their effectiveness in surgical periodontal therapy is yet to be fully established. The aim of this presentation is to critically evaluate the effectiveness of various lasers in non-surgical and surgical periodontal therapy and discuss the merits and demerits of using lasers.

Also, they will be able to critically analyze the evidence on the benefits and drawbacks of using lasers for treating periodontal disease.
