Comparison of Gingival Troughing by Laser and Retraction Cord


Comparison of Gingival Troughing by Laser and Retraction Cord

This study was aimed at comparing the most common two methods for gingival troughing: presaturated cord and lasers (including diode, Nd:YAG, and Er:YAG). A total of 108 anterior teeth (58 maxillary and 50 mandibular) in 50 patients were included in this study. Gingival treatment was carried out in the following four groups: presaturated cord, diode laser, Nd:YAG laser, and Er:YAG laser. The gingival width and gingival recession (GR) were measured at different times (at the time of treatment, after 1 week, and after 4 weeks). The presaturated cord resulted in significantly higher (P < .05) GR than lasers and narrower gingival sulci. Er:YAG laser resulted in the quickest and most uneventful wound healing when compared to diode and Nd:YAG lasers.
