Today use of lasers in Implantology has made significant progress, so that requires far less traditional methods of treatment and it has been increased speed of healing. One of the lasers applications in implantology is in the process of osseointegration which made minimum the prolonged time among of planted surgical implants, prosthesis fabrication and implant. Aim of the present survey is to examine and record the temperature changes caused by low level diode laser (Mark GIGA) around 810nm wavelength during laser interaction with tissue. Besides in a clinical study, the surface temperature changes of soft tissue recorded by IR Thermometer once before and after the diode laser radiation at 10 implants placed on 4 patients (3 women and 1 man) in 15 points (total 48 points) from different parts of tissue. Then, the temperature data analyzed by COMSOL Multiphysics 5.2 software. However, the soft tissues temperature changes under diode laser treatment of osseointegration but don’t damage tissues. Also after inserting implants, the laser irradiation cause more stability and reduce the duration of treatment.
