The result: Diode and CO2 lasers with both parameters used increased significantly the temperature by more than 46°C, whereas the temperature in the Er:YAG laser group was less than 30°C. There was a statistically significant difference between diode, CO2, and Er:YAG lasers in favor of the erbium laser.
The conclusion: The LiteTouch Er:YAG laser demonstrates the best thermal properties during irradiation of the implant surface. The three preset tested – 1.5 W, 6.8 W, and 7.5 W – provide safe intervention on both the soft and bone tissues of the implant interface and on the implant itself, without causing an increase in temperature in the different substrates.
