Lasers Periodontal Therapy

Some practitioners may use lasers to treat periodontal disease.  We are not for or against the use of lasers, but simply demand scientific evidence to support any therapy we provide.  To date, inadequate data exists to suggest that using lasers for any aspect of periodontal care is effective.  We constantly stay abreast of the evolution of therapy in our specialty and insist on the best care for our patient.  This view is shared by the American Academy of Periodontology in a consensus statement that can be at www.perio.org.
