OBJECTIVE Literature reports bactericidal and biostimulant effects for Nd:YAG laser procedures on bone and oral mucosa but the possible overheating can cause damage to anatomical structures. The aim of the study was to evaluate the is the evaluation of thermal increase in different levels of oral tissues: mucosa, periosteum and bone during defocused application of Nd:YAG laser at different parameters. STUDY DESIGN Superficial thermal evaluation was performed in pig jaws with a thermal camera… CONTINUE READING
