Summary:

Aim: to analyze the erbium laser effects in oral surgery in patients with the risk of bleeding. There were selected 2 groups of patients for oral surgery treatment. Materials and methods. The first group included 31 patients with bleeding risk. In this group erbium laser radiation was used for the cut and tooth socket conditioning after tooth extraction. The second (control) group of 43 patients without concomitant pathology was determined for conventional surgical treatment. Results. In the first group there was no postoperative bleeding, post-surgical pain and infection were prevented with no need for analgesics, and the wounds epithelization took 1-3 days. It takes less time than in control group. Conclusion. Application of erbium laser is a modern method which can be successfully used in surgical treatment of patients with the risk of bleeding.
