Conference paper


Therapeutic effect of lasers on bone legions is very important aspect in its clinical application and has attracted some attention1)-4). The authors- clinical application of Nd:YAG laser for alveolar ostitis has already revealed the bone regeneration effect of the Nd:YAG laser5)-7). Following this, the authors have studied the bone healing effect of argon ion (Ar+)laser in low incident energy application. This paper reports on the bone regeneration effects of the Ar+ laser in its clinical application for alveolar ostitis. Extremely severe bone legions caused by either periodontal or periapical alveolar ostitis are usually difficult to cure by traditional methodology. Therefore the alveolar ostitis are attractive indications for evaluating the therapeutic effects of lasers for bone legions.
