Although laser technology has been evolving drastically the last decade , In the Periodontal Prosthesis clinic and even some other reputable periodontal practices do not consider the laser technology could replace a clean sharp cut incisions in the gum tissues. The safety of the laser to the underlying bone is still questionable even by the American Academy of Periodontology as it is not evidenced based procedures.
Therefore the use of the laser technology in the periodontal prosthesis clinic is still limited to a very minor soft tissues procedures. Laser technology has been successfully used widely in the medical field and has vast applications in the surgical fields , benign or malignant tumors.
We hope in the very near future the safety of using laser technology in the bone tissues would be allowable and feasible according to additional evidenced based data.
