Advances in implant designs, materials and techniques have led to predictable success in their application, and several types of implants are now available for use in rehabilitation of different clinical problems. In the last 15 years, a number of laser wavelengths have been brought to the profession for various procedures. The CO2, Nd:YAG, diode, argon, and holmium wavelengths are primarily soft tissue lasers. The introduction of the erbium family of wavelengths, with its ability to safely remove hard tissue, has stimulated a new wave of interest in laser therapy in the dental profession. The parallel in the expansion of implant dentistry and laser dentistry in clinical practice is apparent. As advocates for laser dentistry continue to seek new ways to use the technology and as more practitioners become involved in implant dentistry, it is logical to see the concurrent use of both technologies in clinical practice. The aim of this article is to describe a second stage surgery using a dental laser and enumerates its uses with advantages.
