Comparison of Treatment Results of Recurrent Aphthous Stomatitis (RAS) with Low- and High-power Laser Irradiation vs a Pharmaceutical Method (5-year Study)

Bladowski, Marek/Konarska-Choroszucha, Hanna/Choroszucha, Tomasz

Purpose: To compare and clinically assess the efficiency of RAS (recurrent aphthous stomatitis) treatment with Solcoseryl (adhesive paste only), low- and high-power laser irradiation, as well as combined therapy with Solcoseryl adhesive paste and low- and high-power laser irradiation. Materials and Methods: 361 patients (male and female) with recurrent aphthosis were treated over a period of 60 months. All patients were divided into three age groups and five clinical groups. The following devices were used: biostimulation laser, 830 nm wavelength (model CTL 1106MX) with the 200 mW probe, and Nd:YAG laser, 1064 nm wavelength (model CTL 1503) up to 9 W power. Results: A strategy for use of low- and high-power laser irradiation in routine treatment of recurrent aphthosis was developed. The Nd:YAG laser provided the best results. Conclusion: In dental surgeries where Nd:YAG laser devices are available, other forms of RAS treatment are not justified, as the use of that laser device provides the greatest clinical effectiveness.
