To study microvascular changes in parodontium under the Low Level Laser Therapy the investigation of volunteers and patients with parodontitis has been conducted. With the contact luminescent microscope we have observed the microcirculatory bed under various stages of parodontitis. We have also used the Laser Doppler Flowmeter in assessment of capillary blood flow. Our work has shown that the microcirculation state is dependent on the stage of disease. Tissue blood flow rapidly falls under hard parodontitis stages. The laser therapy in combination with traditional treatment is very effective in the case of the light and middle stages of parodontitis. There are the restoration and even the enhancement of capillary blood flow and the reconstruction of native microvascular bed in parodontium after complex therapy. The long-term results of laser therapy are also positive.
