Paper Abstract

Introduction: The use of lasers has become a practice in modern periodontology and it is a fact that the use of diodes in the dental office can bring a real benefit in periodontal surgery.

Material and method: These case reports describe few of various soft tissue procedures that were performed with diode laser 940 nm (Epic 10, Biolase Inc., USA).

Discussions: There are a few immediate benefits of the intervention: the “periodontal bandage” belongs to the patient, the procedure is painless, performed under a superficial anesthesia and the psychological impact on the patient, as well as the acceptance, are superior to conventional methods of dentistry.

Conclusions: Diode lasers at the level of periodontium have become a significant part of the dentistry, reducing the patient’s stress and giving satisfaction to practitioners as well.
