Effectiveness of a diode laser in addition to non-surgical periodontal therapy: study of intervention - 2015

Antonio Crispino, DDS, PhD, Michele Mario Figliuzzi, DDS, PhD, Claudio Iovane, DDS, Teresa Del Giudice, MD, Simona Lomanno, Delfina Pacifico, DDS, Leonzio Fortunato, MD, Roberto Del Giudice, DDS.

Conclusions: Considered the better clinical outcomes, diode laser can be routinely associated with SRP in the treatment of periodontal pockets of patients with moderate-to-severe periodontitis.


Effect of the Diode Laser on Bacteremia Associated with Dental Ultrasonic Scaling: A Clinical and Microbiological Study - November, 2007


Conclusions: Application of DL energy can reduce bacteria in gingival crevices which may reduce bacteremia following US. The use of DL did not show additional clinical influence on gingival healing after treatment of gingivitis with US.


Application of a Diode Laser in the Reduction of Targeted Periodontal Pathogens – Dec 2013

Conclusions: Based on the obtained results, we concluded that diode laser irradiation reduces the number of active periodontal pathogens. We believe that the use of diode lasers, as a supplementary method in the treatment of periodontal disease, is extremely useful and efficient, and can be recommended as part of standard clinical practice.

Productive Laser Hygiene & Consulting courses are designed for dentists and dental hygienists at all levels of expertise. Information shared in our courses is developed from clinical research and includes the most current information available from evidence-based dentistry. Completing a single continuing education course does not provide sufficient information to result in the participant being an expert in the field related to the course topic. It is a combination of many educational courses and clinical experience that allows the participant to develop skills and expertise.
Productive Laser Hygiene & Consulting assumes no liability and is not in a position to render judgment as to whether clinicians that have taken our courses are or are not approved by their state board for laser use. It is our understanding that the states of Arizona, Nevada, Tennessee, Wisconsin and Wyoming do NOT accept online courses for their laser training requirements, in those states a LIVE course including hands on training is required.
