Paper Abstract

Non-invasive laser therapy is currently frequently used in stomatological practice thanks to its analgesic, antiinflammatory and biostimulating effects. Suitable indications and methodic procedures of the treatment should be established to provide the relevant efficacy of the method. Materials and methods: The source of the beam is a diode (670 nm or 830 nm; 30 mW), energy density 4 - 6 We have treasted 1 154 patients in 15 indications. The patients were divided into three groups. The group A included patients, who were treated with therapeutic laser, the group B is control, and group C consisted of patients, who were treated by conventional methods. Results: Our results demonstrated a beneficial contribution of therpeutic laser in some. Conclusion: The success of the laser therapy considerably depends on the time of starting the application. We recommend the treatment of herpetic affections, aphthae, erosions, decubiti of mucous membrane and after difficult extraction.
