Paper Abstract

Application of the low-intensity laser irradiation let decrease to a marked degree complication in the treatment of pulpitis, periodontitis and pulpoperiodontitis, and reduce the period of tooth and periodontal tissues phlogistic. Morphological researches evident confirm clinical results on the example of the 380 patients. Combination of the laser therapy with various varieties of the medicinal treatment is possible and effective. The results of our researches prove the value of laser therapy application in endodonty. Integral and pathogenetic effect of laser in influence on the pulp and periodontal tissues let us recommend the present variety of therapy as the main in treatment of endodontic pathologies. The great success has been achieved in using the lasers in the treatment of dental diseases during the last years. There are some reports in the literature devoted to the positive effects of the laser therapy in the prophylaxis and treatment of caries /7, 11, 13/, pulpitis /3,6,8, 11 /, elimination of the complications in the treatment of pulpitis and periodontitis /2,3, 4,5,10/. The notes in some papers /1,6,7,10,11,12/ about the affects of therapeutic treatment, associated with the multifactor pathogenic activity of the laser irradiation on the dental tissues are extremely important too. At present various methods are used in the treatment of pulpitis and periodontitis, and they give the possibility to make a prognosis about different modifications in applying lasers into a complex of therapeutic procedures. In connection with this the search for the optimal parameters and methods in laser therapy is quite actual.
