Introduction: In periodontal pockets, the exposed root surfaces are contaminated with an accumulation of plaque and calculus. Usually, in the initial phase of periodontal therapy, debridement of the diseased root surface is non surgically. However, complete removal of plaque and calculus is not always achieved with only the use of conventional mechanical therapy. The outcome of other studies showed that adding diode laser therapy to the initial phase of periodontal therapy significantly improved treatment results. The aim of this study was the evaluation of the effects of diode (980 nm) laser on clinical periodontal parameters after nonsurgical periodontal therapy.
Methods: Twenty-one patients with moderate to severe chronic periodontitis (11 men and 10 female with mean age of 42.2) were selected and divided into the control group (SRP) and test group (SRP + laser). Two months after the last scaling and laser radiation, clinical parameters were recorded and compared with baseline. This clinical trial study was in splint mouth design which was done on randomized selection in two quadrant (Maxilla and Mandible) in test group. the data were entered in computer and analysed bying SPSS 16 and Mannywhitny and Wilcoxon test.
Results: After two months, clinical parameters improved in both groups. There were statically significant difference between two groups in PI and PD (0-3) mm, however in CAL and PPD (3-5) mm, (>5) mm no statically significant difference were seen.
Conclusion: According to an overall improvement in clinical parameters, usage laser as an adjunctive treatment besides common methods could be suggested.
