PURPOSE Recently, histologic studies in the beagle dog model demonstrated that CO2 laser-assisted implant decontamination can result in reosseointegration. Consequently, the purpose of this study was to assess the efficacy of CO2 laser-assisted therapy as compared with conventional therapy, with the concomitant use of beta-tricalcium phosphate, in humans. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study included 32 patients with 73 ailing implants. In the laser group, 22 implants were treated with soft tissue… CONTINUE READING
