AbstractINTRODUCTION: LASER is an acronym for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation,a device which emits light coherently into a small, intense, and nearly non‐divergent beam with sufficient energy to cut hard and soft tissues. The effect of a laser depends on the energy emitted and absorption by the target tissue. This energy represents a monochromatic light which is collimated into a focused beam interacting with the targeted tissue by being scattered, reflected, absorbed, or transmitted.
Dental implants have become an indispensable established therapy in dentistry in order to replace missing teeth in different clinical situations Microbial colonization has been implicated to be the main causative factor in the pathogenesis of implant failures . The presence of bacteria on implant surfaces leads to an inflammation of the peri-implant mucosa, which when left untreated, the inflammation spreads apically and results in bone resorption, which has been named peri-implantitis . A recent review concluded that laser therapy provided identical outcomes as other surface detoxification methods about probing depth (PD) reduction, clinical attachment level (CAL) gain, and radiographic bone fill
