The stability of dental implants is of great significance for successful osseointegration. The long-term retention of implants, however, depends on how strongly the epithelial and connective tissues adhere to its titanium surface, that is, on how efficiently the soft tissues seal the bone protecting it from the oral bacterial flora. The aim of the present study was to develop a technique that uses low-intensity laser irradiation to stimulate the growth of healthy peri-implant mucosa. The study yielded very good results.

Key words: low-intensity laser, dental implants, osseointegration.
