The Effects of Laser Microgrooves on Hard and Soft Tissue Attachment to Implant Collar Surfaces: A Literature Review and Interpretation


Mohammad Ketabi, DDS, MDS (Perio)/Douglas Deporter, DDS, PhD


PMID: 24116369
DOI: 10.11607/prd.1629

This paper summarizes current knowledge on the benefits of laserablated microgrooves in neck regions of endosseous dental implants. Like machine-tooled coronal microthreads with particle-blasted surfaces, laser-ablated microgrooves help to preserve crestal bone. However, they also appear to uniquely favor a true gingival connective tissue attachment comparable to that of natural teeth.
