OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical use of an erbium, chromium: yttrium-scandium-gallium-garnet (Er,Cr:YSGG) laser in the management of root furcation involvements. BACKGROUND DATA It has been suggested that the use of laser radiation within the periodontal pocket may be effective in periodontal treatment. However, very limited data from clinical trials exist directly comparing the use of the Er,Cr:YSGG laser to conventional root planing. MATERIALS AND METHODS… Expand
Does Er,Cr:YSGG Laser would be the Gold Standard for Periodontal Treatment?. Review
Surgical treatment for the management of periodontal pockets associated with intrabony defects can be challenging. Due to access, these defects often require surgical intervention, employingExpand
Evaluation of the clinical and biochemical efficacy of erbium, chromium:ytrium-scandium-gallium-garnet (ER,CR:YSGG) laser treatment in periodontitis
Er,Cr:YSGG laser treatment applied in addition to NSPT is indicated to reduce clinical inflammation and both the treatment modalities resulted in significant improvements in clinical parameters. Expand
Clinical effectiveness of Er,Cr:YSGG lasers in non-surgical treatment of chronic periodontitis: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials
The present meta-analysis indicated that Er,Cr:YSGG lasers provided additional effectiveness in PD reduction and CAL gain at short-term follow-ups and there was less pain compared with SRP alone. Expand

The aim was to systematically evaluate the probing depth (PD) reduction of lasers in scaling and root planing (SRP) of chronic periodontitis by network meta-analysis (NMA) and found laser-assisted periodontal treatment has better PD reduction. Expand
Do Lasers Have an Adjunctive Role in Initial Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy? A Systematic Review
A systematic review of the scientific literature to ascertain whether lasers have a beneficial role when used adjunctively in initial non-surgical periodontal therapy found that 70% of the included studies reported significantly better outcomes in certain clinical parameters, but no improvement in others.

Effect of Er,Cr:YSGG laser application in the treatment of experimental periodontitis
The results achieved with the application of the Er,Cr:YSGG laser suggest that this laser can stimulate greater bone formation, especially over a shorter period of time. Expand
Periodontal treatment with an Er: YAG laser compared to scaling and root planing. A controlled clinical study.
An Er:YAG laser may represent a suitable alternative for non-surgical periodontal treatment and both groups showed a significant increase of cocci and non-motiles rods and a decrease in the amount of motile rods and spirochetes. Expand
Effects of Er,Cr:YSGG laser irradiation on the root surface: morphologic analysis and efficiency of calculus removal.
It is appropriate to use a 1.0-W power output setting with an Er,Cr:YSGG laser for root scaling by examining the morphologic alterations of the root surfaces and the efficiency of calculus removal in periodontal pocket irradiation. Expand
Comparing the effects of root surface scaling with ultrasound instruments and Er,Cr:YSGG laser
There are several studies done to show the comparability of laser scaling and root planing with routine methods. The most suitable wavelengths for such an application are reported as 2,940 and 2,780Expand
Clinical Application of Periodontal Initial Treatment with Er,Cr:YSGG Laser for Patients with Chronic Periodontitis
For the patients with chronic periodontitis, periodontal subgingival debridement with Er,Cr:YSGG laser is safe and effective. Expand
Efficacy of subgingival calculus removal with Er:YAG laser compared to mechanical debridement: an in situ study.
The present investigation could demonstrate the in vivo capability of the Er:YAG laser to remove calculus from periodontally involved root surfaces, although the effectiveness did not reach that achieved by hand instrumentation. Expand
Nd:YAG laser clinical assisted in class II furcation treatment
The Nd:YAG laser associated with conventional treatment promoted significant bacterial reduction in class II furcation immediately after irradiation, although this reduction was not observed 6 weeks after the baseline, and the number of dark pigmented bacteria and the percentage of patients with Porphyromonas gingivalis, Prevotella intermedia, and Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans reduced immediately after the treatment.

Effect of Er, Cr: YSGG laser irradiation on Enterococcus faecalis in infected root canals.
2- and 3-W powers of Er, Cr:YSGG laser have antibacterial effects on E. faecalis in root canals of infected teeth; however, the effect is less remarkable than that of NaOCl solution. Expand
The influence of molar furcation involvement and mobility on future clinical periodontal attachment loss.
It was demonstrated that teeth with FI were 2.54 times more likely to be lost when compared to teeth without FI during the maintenance period and teeth with increased MO demonstrated significantly more AL between times A and C and B and C. Expand
Nonsurgical treatment of periodontitis.
