Abstract

Since mid 20th century, dental treatments with laser have been introduced and improved a lot. Because early CO2, Nd:YAG, diode, argon, and holmium lasers are used for dealing soft tissue, so it applied just limited field. But, in 1997 the lasers of erbium family that able to dealing soft and hard tissue also were introduced, laser application fields are enlarged. In today, the application fields reach on implantation treatment, so clinicians can use the laser to make holes for implantation, and flap elevation, even though treating peri-implantitis. So our class want to discover the optimal setting of Er:YAG laser when treating peri-implantitis. We observed the surface that initially treated by RBM and TPS passion and laser with varied options of exposure time and power with SEM image. For this we conclude the optimal setting range that does not alter the implant surface structure and report it
