Paper Abstract

The investigations included 50 patients who were subjected to extraction of two adjacent teeth because of chronic periodontal ligament inflammation using 2 percent lignocaine as an anaesthetic agent. One postextraction wound was irradiated with laser light, whereas the second one was left to be healed in a natural way. The use of laser beam accelerates postextraction wound healing on the basis of clinical and cytologic evaluation.
