Laser energy was first invented by Albert Einstein in 1917 and first used medically to freeze retina injuries in 1963. Not until 1980,  non-invasion laser or soft laser were widely applied in medicine. The benefits of laser in general and semiconductor laser in particular in medicine compared with traditional techniqes are: sterilization, hemostatic, or promoting healing process.  For healing process, studies show that laser energy increase the pace of healing through the development of  chemical epithelial proliferation, differentiation of fibroblasts, increased protein synthesis, reduce inflammatory processes, increases the extracellular matrix products and the organization of collagen bunches [1]. The operating environment of laser diode is the semiconducor substance made from Aluminum, gallium, arsenic and sometimes indium, creating a wavelength from 810 nm to 980 nm [2]. Thanks to the superior feature, semiconductor laser is also widely used in Vietnam in many medical fields [3][4]. However, with periodontitis, there have been any studies to evaluate the efficiency of semiconductor laser energy in the support of disease treatment. Because of this reason, we conduct this study with the aim of assessing the efficiency of semiconductor laser treatment on periodontitis.
