The use of lasers in periodontal treatment has been well documented over the past 10 years. Lasers can be used for initial periodontal therapy and surgical procedures. When used in deep periodontal pockets with associated bony defects, the laser not only removes the diseased granulation tissue and associated bacteria but also it promotes osteoclast and osteoblast activity, often resulting in bone regrowth. Laser is effectively used to perform gingivectomies, gingivoplasties, free gingival graft procedures, crown lengthening, operculectomy, pocket disinfection, and many more. Gingival depigmentation using laser ablation has been recognized as an effective, pleasant, and reliable technique. In terms of esthetic dentistry, the use of the Erbium laser in crown lengthening in the anterior has created an entirely new dimension in smile design.
