Abstract

The discovery of lasers in the early sixties has opened up a new era in the field of medicine and surgery. Research has been directed to introduce laser technology in the field of dentistry. Advancement has occurred1 in diagnosis, treatment planning, procedures in soft and hard tissues and orthodontics. In the early evolutionary state, better understanding of the tissue reaction and refining of the technique mil improve the scope of lasers in clinical dentistry.
