Study: No clinical advantage of lasers for perio maintenance
Do soft-tissue lasers add clinical value to the treatment of periodontal disease beyond what can be achieved using only scaling and root planing? The literature so far is mixed, but a new study to be presented at the upcoming International Association for Dental Research meeting has found that the use of a Nd:YAG laser does not provide a significant advantage during a periodontal maintenance care program. The Nd:YAG lasers have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for soft-tissue treatment.
