The laser periodontal therapy LANAP is worthwhile

Use of a laser-assisted new luting technique and low-level laser therapy for periodontal patients

detailed description

The study was designed as a randomized, controlled, single-blind, parallel design consisting of 80 patients with chronic periodontal disease. The study consists of 4 groups with 20 patients in each group. Group 1 received NSPT only, Group 2 received NSPT + LANAP, Group 3 received NSPT + LLLT, and Group 4 received NSPT + LANAP + LLLT. Clinical measurements of patients and gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) were taken before treatment and after 1 and 3 months. In the GCF, interleukin-1beta, interleukin-10 and vascular endothelial growth factor were analyzed. Standard periapical radiographs were taken for radiographic measurements. In moderate (4-6 mm) and deep pockets (7 mm and higher) it was found that all groups were treated with laser to reduce the pocket depth (PD) and the degree of attachment of the clinic (CAL) significantly compared to group 1. Group 3 caused significantly less gum recession than any of the other groups. There was no statistical difference between the groups in the biochemical markers. The X-ray analysis showed that only group 2 achieved significant bone filling compared to group 1. Bot LANAP and LLLT applications in the deep pockets make an additional contribution to NSPT. It has been found that LLLT administration leads to a reduction in PD by creating a minimal recession.
