The aim The present study aims to conduct a descriptive analysis by reviewing in vivo and in vitro studies concerned with the antibacterial effect of Er,Cr:YSGG laser (2780 nm) and their effects on implant surfaces at different parameters for peri-implantitis treatment. Materials and methods The PubMed and Google Scholar had been used to search for articles that focused on the antibacterial effect of Er,Cr:YSGG laser (2780 nm) in the treatment of peri-implantitis and their effects on implant surfaces. This literature search was limited to ten years (January 2007–March 2017). Results The favorable settings of Er,Cr:YSGG laser which can be used significantly to treat peri-implantitis without titanium surface characteristic alteration or increase of temperature based on reviewed articles are in a non-contact mode (0.5 mm distance) at 1 and 1.5 W, 10 and 30 Hz, and 60 and 120 s, respectively, under air and water flow for refrigeration. Conclusion Er,Cr:YSGG laser with specific parameters is an effective tool in the treatment of peri-implantitis without negative effect on the implant surfaces. . . . . . . .
