The purpose of the study was to assess the effects of LED-PAD and tolonium chloride on periodontal clinical parameters in chronic periodontitis.

Materials and Methods: The study was conducted on patients with chronic periodontitis, divided in 2 groups (study group and control group of patients who, besides the conventional therapy measures, also received PAD therapy). The periodontal clinical parameters were registered at baseline and after 3 months.

Results and Discussions: The post-therapy evaluation revealed significantly improved results of periodontal clinical parameters in the study group, when compared to the control group. Our results support the literature studies conducted on chronic periodontitis patients but without any systemic diseases.

Conclusion: The PAD disinfection determined a significant improvement for the periodontal clinical parameters in patients with periodontal disease.
