Abstract

 

Laser therapy was first introduced as a potential method for treating dentinal hypersensitivity (DH) in the mid-1980s Various types of laser used in treatment like low power lasers He-Ne (632.5 nm), diode lasers with various wavelengths 810, 940,980 nm and medium power lasers as Nd:YAG (1064nm), CO2 10600 Er:YAG (2940nm) and Er,Cr:YSGG (2780nm). He-Ne (632.5 nm) and diode lasers have analgic effect. Objectives: To appraise the efficiency of different techniques by using diode lasers 810 and 980 nm alone or in a combination with different desensitizing agents in management and treatment of dentinal hypersensitivity Data:138 articles are included then according to exclusion criteria, 46 articles are included,   after specific exclusion criteria and evaluation of the articles, they become 35 articles, from the 35 articles there were 5 systematic review articles 22 in vivo study and 8 in vitro study. Sources: A thorough search of Literature was performed through Pubmed databases. Words used in the search: diode lasers and hypersensitivity, diode lasers in treatment dental hypersensitivity, dentinal hypersensitivity, and low power lasers. Conclusions: 810 and 980 diode lasers are effective in treatment of dentinal hypersensitivity, diode lasers with different wavelengths alone or with desensitizing materials are efficient.
