Incision less Suture less Procedure in the Treatment of Chronic Periodontitis: A Case Report
International Journal of Research and Reports in Dentistry,
Introduction: Periodontitis is an immune inflammatory disease of the supporting structures of the teeth. The treatment for periodontitis is primarily aimed at limiting the periodontal infection. Conventional treatment plan includes non – surgical or surgical periodontal therapy that has been proven to produce good results throughout the years. The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure also known as LANAP conventionally employing the Nd:YAG (neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet) laser is a less invasive periodontal surgical procedure. The main aim of the LANAP protocol was the removal of the diseased and the necrotic tissues that are present within the periodontal sulcus.
Case Report: In this article we present a case of a 40-year-old male patient who reported to the department of periodontics with chronic periodontitis. After assessing the periodontal parameters scaling and root planing was done followed by laser treatment according to the LANAP protocol using the diode laser.
Conclusion: At the end of 1 year there was significant reduction in the bleeding on probing. Also, there was a minimum of 2-3 mm reduction in the probing pocket depth and statistically significant improvement in the clinical attachment gain.
