Objective: Photobiomodulation (PBM) using diode laser is regarded an effective modality for the repair of tissues and control of pain. Ozone, owing to its biocompatibility, healing, and antimicrobial properties, is used in dentistry as well. This study was carried to clinically compare and evaluate the healing of gingival depigmented wounds using ozonated oil and PBM. Materials and Methods: A laser depigmentation procedure was conducted on seven patients exhibiting bilateral upper and lower gingival melanin hyperpigmentation, followed by the application of ozonated oil (Group 1) and laser PBM (Group 2). The clinical parameters are taken namely Visual Analog Scale and Healing Index (HI), were evaluated on the 3rd, 7th, and 15th day. Results: Statistical analysis showed better HI in Group I as compared to Group II on the 3rd day, but it was comparable in both groups on the 7th and 15th day. Conclusion: The application of ozonated oil was found to be more efficacious in promoting the initial healing of wound in comparison to PBM. Both ozonated oil and PBM also showed the same capabilities in reduction of the postoperative pain.
