Introduction: We present our clinical cases, the use of
diode laser in patients with gingival hypertrophy and
lower semi impact third molar.
An indication for application of our diode laser as in our
cases is:
At first – periodontal surgery, gingival depigmentation
and decontamination and curettage of the sulcus,
In the other case, in the area of the third molar, we
made operculectomy, circumcision and we got excellent
Methods: The patient, a 64 year old man, was a
good general health for his age. He presented with a
conventional bridge in the maxilla supported by natural
abutments and gingival frontal upper hypertrophy. Since
the bridge was removed, used the diode laser we made
a new gingival contour, following only contact anesthetic.
The other patients, a 23 year old woman, right lower
semi impact third molar where we make operculectomy
with diode laser, like the previous case only with contact
Conclusions: The diode laser as a modern therapeutic
method helped us to a very fast and simple way, elegant,
clean – without bleeding, and in a short time period for
treatment and resolution of such situations.
