The aim was to remark the indications about diode laser in gingivectomy as an adjunct to nonsurgical periodontal treatment in a subject undergoing fixed prosthodontic treatment with the dental crown.
Case report: Initial therapy was full mouth scaling, by hand and ultrasonic instrumentation and oral hygiene instructions. Female patient (39 years old) visited our clinic.
Diagnosis was gingival hypertrophy from the 1.3 to 2.3. Patient was advised diode laser
gingivectomy ( 810 nm) as an adjunct to nonsurgical treatmen. The diode laser gingivectomy was performed under local anaesthetic, applied for 5 minutes prior to operation. The gingivectomy was made with a power output of 1.2 W, continuous wave (CW).
Results: Useful of diode laser renders these procedures more than effective for majority of patients. Ablation was performed using light brushing strokes and the tip was kept in continuous motion.
Conclusion: Laser treatment can be completed quickly, painlessly, and with minimal side effects to the patients.
