Bone Regeneration Using a Diode Laser 

Laura Braswell, DDS, Buckhead Periodontics, Atlanta, Georgia, USA


Research has shown that the Nd:YAG laser is effective for bone regeneration. The diode laser can also be used for bone regeneration around implants and natural teeth. A technique will be presented for treating periodontitis and peri-implantitis with the ultimate goal of new bone for both tooth and/or implant retention. This step-by-step protocol will explain the purpose and science behind the process showing clinical and radiographic success. Problem cases will also be shown with theoretical concepts of what could have gone wrong. By reviewing our successes and our complications we can all improve our clinical outcomes.



Educational Objectives
  • Summarize a clinical case of bone regeneration using a diode laser.
  • Discuss a clinical technique for treating periodontitis and peri-implantitis with a diode laser.
  • Provide a platform to stimulate future investigation into hard tissue regeneration using lasers.
