Paper Abstract

This is a clinical presentation demonstrating the efficacy of laser therapy in the treatment of patients presenting with trauma to both the hard and soft tissue in the orofacial region. The use of laser therapy aids the management of these cases where the patients often present with anxiety and a low pain threshold. The outcomes in these cases indicate good patient acceptance of the treatment, enhanced repair and tissue response suggesting that this form of treatment can be indicated for these patients. A combination of hard and soft lasers are used for the comprehensive dental management and treatment of these cases. The lasers used are a 810nm diode and an Er.CrYSGG.
