Peri-implantitis is defined as an inflammatory process which affects the tissues around an osseointegrated implant in function, resulting in bleeding, suppuration, increased probing depth, mobility and radiographic bone loss. This case report is on two cases of peri-implantitis and their treatment by using lasers. The aim of the article is to describe the added clinical benefits of laser as an adjunct in the treatment of peri-implantitis. This case series showed that the Irradiation with a diode soft laser had positive biostimulating effects, which might be used in treatment of peri-implantitis and osseointegration of dental implants.
