Histologic evaluation of alveolar bone following CO2 laser removal of connective tissue from periodontal defects.

Abstract

This study was undertaken to examine histologically the healing response of alveolar bone following removal of granulation and/or connective tissues from interproximal craters by manual curettage or ablation by carbon dioxide laser. The time required to complete each type of degranulation procedure was also compared. Four interproximal treatment sites in… (More)
