Effectiveness of dual-wavelength (Diodes 980 Nm and 635 Nm) laser approach as a non-surgical modality in the management of periodontally diseased root surface: a pilot study.

https://doi.org/10.1080/13102818.2018.1544034

Biotechnology & Biotechnological Equipment

Conventional periodontal therapies have been widely discussed in the literature. The results of these therapies, surgically and non-surgically, have demonstrated high predictability and stable maintenance over time. With some clinical indications, such as inflamed sites with consistent bleeding on probing (BOP), it can be challenging for the root planning procedure to achieve predictable outcomes. Therefore, the aim and objectives of the present study were to evaluate whether the dual-wavelength (980 and 635nm) laser therapy at lower power settings can be beneficial as a combined non-invasive modality in the management of periodontally diseased root surface in terms of improving the periodontal parameters. Thirty-five healthy patients were enrolled in this study. All patients had at least one pocket in the anterior and posterior teeth with initial periodontal pocket depth (PPD)>6mm associated with evidence of clinical inflam- mation, i.e. bleeding on probing (BOPþþ or BOPþþþ) with no gingival recession. The treat- ment protocol utilized combined therapy of conventional debridement immediately followed by application of dual-wavelength laser therapy (photo-ablation and photodynamic therapies) at lower power settings. The results showed that all the pockets of involved teeth had an average gain of 3 mm of the clinical attachment level with no sign of BOP and reduction in the mobility of the teeth 35days post-operatively. Thus, the utilization of the dual-wavelength approach of laser-assisted therapy at lower power settings appears to provide a promising and predictable non-invasive clinical approach in the management of compromised periodontally involved teeth.

Efficiency of Er:YAG utilization in accelerating deep bite orthodontic treatment

Laser therapy 27.3:193-202

Laser therapy

Background and aims: The long duration of orthodontic treatment is a major patients’ concern. A non- invasive method of accelerating tooth movement in a physiological manner is needed.
The aim of the study was to evaluate the effects of Er:YAG laser application during orthodontic treatment of deep bite and to evaluate its analgesic effect during that movement.

Materials and methods: A prospective randomized controlled clinical trial (RCT) was performed on 30 patients with deep bite. Sample was divided into two groups: (A), 15 patients (orthodontic treatment -control group) and (B), 15 patients (orthodontic treatment and Er:YAG Laser - laser group). The tooth movement was evaluated as the primary outcome variable by measuring angular and linear changes on three progress lateral cephalometeric radiographs (T1, T2 and T3); Lateral cephalograms were taken be- fore treatment (T1), immediately after finishing the stage of leveling and alignment (T2) and after com- pletion of the intrusion stage (T3).

Laser parameters were 400 mJ/10 Hz/4 W and 400 mJ/15 Hz/6 W, depending on the handpiece used. The levels of pain and discomfort were evaluated and ranked according to a visual analog scale. Paired t-tests or Wilcoxon matched-pairs signed-rank tests were used to detect significant differences.
Results: The main findings of the treatment were (1) significant positive difference in the rates of tooth intrusion movement on the experimental group compared with the control group at the baseline to T2 and T3 interval and the tooth movement rate was approximately 3 times faster in the experimental group. (2) The pain score in the experimental group was significantly lower compared with the control group on day 3 as on day 7.
Conclusions: The application of Er:YAG laser is an effective mean to speed orthodontic tooth movement with a significant reduction in pain and discomfort after application.
