Abstract:


The aim of this research work is to evaluate the use of 980 nm diode laser in clotting the blood in the bone socket after tooth extraction. The objective is to prevent possible clot dislodgement which is a defect that may lead to possible infection. A number of rabbits were irradiated using 980nm CW mode diode laser, 0.86W power output for 9s and 15s exposure time. The irradiated groups were studied histopathologically in comparison with a control group. Results showed that laser photothermal coagulation was of benefit in minimizing the possibility of the incidence of postoperative complications. The formation of the clot reduces the possibility of bleeding and infection.
