The Nd: Yag Laser is used for desinfection and sterilisation of the intracanal space in the endodontical therapy procedure, especially with the chronic periapical lesions. Aim: Our goal was to make clinical and radiographic assesment of the therapeutical effects of the Nd: Yag Laser with the chronic periapical lesions. Study desidn: In the study, we present 10 cases of single-rooted human teeth with X-ray determined periapical radiolucency. In all of them, during the endodontical therapeutic procedure, the intracanal space was desinfected and sterilised twice with the Nd: Yag Laser. X-ray and clinical studies were made after 3 and then again after 6 months since the beginning of the endodontic treatment in all cases. Results: Out of the 10 tested cases, in 2 patients, after the first laser treatment, subjective simptoms were found and the patients were submited for sugical treatment. The rest of the treated teeth demonstrated positive therapeutical effect during and after the endodontical conservative treatment. Conclusion: With the usage of the Nd: Yag Laser the therapeutical procedure for the chronic periapical lesions is shorter, and there is a significantlly succesfull and positive post-endodontic effect.
