Efficiency of diode laser using in comprehensive treatment of small forms of chronic recurrent aphthous stomatitis
The results of estimation of diode laser using efficiency in comprehensive treatment of small forms of chronic recurrent aphthous stomatitis are presented in this article. The 44 patients with small forms of chronic recurrent aphthous stomatitis were included in study. The group of comparison consisted of 24 patients with standard approach to treatment of chronic recurrent aphthous stomatitis with local antiseptics and anesthetics. The main group of study included 20 patients that received laser beams irradiation of low intensity in addition to standard therapy. The positive influence of low intensity laser beams on aphthous defects of oral mucosa was demonstrated. This approach permits to decrease intensity of pain syndrome and to diminish the square of aphthous defects until their complete disappearance.
