Laser Bacterial Kill

This is a good article that shows the diference between the ND:Yag and the Diode laser where it coresponds to killing P.Gingivalis. A known bacteria in Periodontal disease.

Link to laser article

The take home is "The dfference in therapeudic index between Nd:YAG and diode indicates that the pulsed Nd:YAG has a 16 times greater selectivity for destruction of pigmented oral
pathogens than the diode laser"
