Background: The adjunctive use of laser devices in dentistry is considered as a great advantage to obtain optimal results including in guided bone regeneration (GBR) procedures. The aim of this case report is to present the benefits in using Er:YAG laser and a 980 nm Diode laser in management of osseous defect by GBR.
Methods: The Er:YAG is used to prepare a sinus lift by crestal approach and to uncover the implants for impression and final restoration, a flattop handpiece connected to a 980 nm diode laser was used for PBMT for bone regeneration.
Result: The use of laser devices had improved the regeneration process and shortened the time for treatment.
Conclusion: Er:YAG laser and PBMT are beneficial during the bone regeneration process.
