Abstract


Introduction: Laser therapy has been associated with certain complications following its use, which include erythema, pigmentation and bruising. Lasers are also found to be associated with affecting the quality of saliva produced by the parotid as well as other glands. Materials and methods: This is a cross-sectional study using a closed-ended questionnaire with one open-ended question. The survey was constructed using paper as well as online link. Statistics was done using SPSS version 19. Descriptive as well as inferential statistics will also be measured using the same software. A value of significance will be kept below 0.05. Results: This study involved N=246 female dental students from REU, amongst which 19% had not used laser for facial hair removal before as compared to 81% having used it. It was observed in findings that significant differences were reported when inquired about sensitivity after laser treatment (p-value: 0.005) and the prevalence of caries (p-value: 0.016). Conclusion: Sensitivity increased among the participants when exposed to laser treatment. No significant comparison could be achieved when compared on the basis of laser sessions.
