OBJECTIVE The aims of this study were (1) to conduct a literature search and systematically evaluate the additional therapeutic effects of pulsed Nd:YAG or diode laser use in patients with periodontitis, (2) to assess evidence supporting the additional benefit of laser-mediated periodontal treatment in conjunction with scaling and root planning (SRP) (not as monotherapy), and (3) to interpret the evidence presented in retrieved publications. BACKGROUND DATA Opinions about the additional use… CONTINUE READING
