Laser offers no advantage in perio treatment
The literature so far is mixed, but a new study to be presented at the upcoming International Association for Dental Research (IADR) meeting has found that the use of a Nd:YAG laser does not provide a significant advantage during a periodontal maintenance care program.
The Nd:YAG lasers have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for soft-tissue treatment.
“To date, the addition of using lasers in the nonsurgical treatment of periodontal disease has minimal evidence to support their use in this fashion alone or as an adjunct,” he said. “The use of lasers in a surgical environment may be an appropriate adjunct to conventional periodontal surgery, but more research is needed to understand the benefit of laser use in this context.” MORE HERE
