Laser-assisted immediate implantation at infected site
Drs Avi Reyhanian, Natan Fuhrman, Israel & Costas Ioannou, Cyprus
Osseointegration of dental implants has become a routinely recommended procedure in the clinical practice of dentistry.1–4 Over the years, patients have begun to demand a shortened treatment time and that treatment be done in one visit, to the extent possible. This clinical case study will discuss and demonstrate the correct use of the Er:YAG laser (2,940nm) in immediate placement of implants (in one visit) at the infected site: extraction, degranulation, decontamination, placing the implant, and treating the bone defect (guided-bone regeneration—GBR)...

Tooth restoration: Enamel alterations
Dr Prof Giuseppe Iaria, Italy
A healthy 56-year-old male patient presented with enamel alteration of tooth #7. The oral examination showed a healthy periodontium and temporomandibular joint, and the teeth were in a Class I occlusion (Figs.1–4). The radiographic examination showed no other radicular lesions. The soft-tissue status indicated good periodontal health. For the hard-tissue test, percussion was normal, and there was no mobility or tenderness to touch or air spray. The tooth tested vital with the electric pulp tester and cold testing...

Utilising laser technology - Obtaining better clinical results and creating better patient experiences
Dr Patrick J. Broome, USA
If your patients are like the majority of our patients, they are always in a rush and seeking the quickest way to accomplish the dentistry they need or desire. We live in a world of instant gratification and everyone is seeking convenience, speed, cost savings and a better end result. It is rare to find a product or device that makes our clinical success easier and more predictable and saves time.

Drs M.L.V. Prabhuji, S.S. Madhupreetha & V. Archana, India
The colour of the gingiva is various among different individuals and it is thought to be associated with cutaneous pigmentation. It depends on the vascular supply of the gingiva, epithelial thickness, degree of keratinisation of the epithelium and the presence of pigmented cells...

Diode-laser-assisted combination therapy of a lip haemangioma
Dr Georg Bach, Germany
As a general rule, haemangioma—also referred to as a “blood sponge”—is a broader term for many different vascular abnormalities. The treatment of haemangiomas, especially in dental practice, requires a clear distinction between congenital vascular tumours and vascular malformations...

Periodontitis therapy with 3,000% more power
Dr Darius Moghtader, Germany
Sometimes by asking questions that nobody has ever asked before you break new ground. In my case, this was: how can I help periodontitis patients even more effectively? And the simple answer is: with the “3,000% more power” therapy...

The antibacterial effects of lasers in endodontics
Dr Selma Cristina Cury Camargo, Brazil
The success of endodontic treatment reaches values between 85 to 97 per cent.1 Adequate treatment protocols, knowledge and infection control are the basic components to achieve such values (Fig. 1).2 It is well known that apical periodontitis is caused by the communication of root-canal microorganisms and their by-products with the surrounding periodontal structures. Exposure of dental pulp directly to the oral cavity or via accessory canals, open dentinal tubules or periodontal pockets, are the most probable routes of the endodontic infection...

TwinLightTM laser-assisted endodontics
Dr Kresimir Simunovic, Switzerland
Classical root treatment involves cleaning the root canal using mechanical means and rinsing with antibacterial solutions and solvents. However, there are two major disadvantages of standard chemomechanical preparations.1 First, the bactericidal effect of the rinsing solutions is limited to the root canal. Because of the narrow diameter of the dentinal tubules and the high surface tension of the liquid solutions, they are able to penetrate only a small distance down the tubules. The penetration depth of chemical disinfectants reaches only 100µm into the dentinal tubules2, while the bacteria can penetrate over 1,000µm from the canal lumen3, and remain protected in the deeper layers of dentin...

TouchWhite Er:YAG laser-assisted Tooth Whitening
Jugoslav Jovanovic, Republic of Srpska
Cosmetic dentistry has become a very important part of dental practice. Studies show that at least one-third of the population is not satisfied with the color and form of their natural teeth.1–3It has been estimated that among patients who present themselves for cosmetic treatments, up to 15% suffer from psychiatric conditions termed Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), also known as dysmorphophobia, which literally means “fear of ugliness”.4,5 BDD has an estimated prevalence of 1% to 2% in the general population and is characterized by a preoccupation with a slight or imagined defect of some aspect of physical appearance. With the increasing demand for esthetic dental care, it is clear that tooth bleaching can present a minimally invasive cosmetic approach...

Infection control
Dr Frank Yung, Canada
More than 20 years ago, a dental patient named Kimberly Bergalis was diagnosed with Aids. The source of her HIV infection was her dentist. Even though the exact path of transmission is still not known, this first proven transmission of HIV from dentist to patient—and the subsequent intense coverage by the media—set off tremendous confusion and panic amongst dental patients. It was her unfortunate death in 1991 that changed the dental profession almost overnight, prompting all sorts of new regulations and guidelines, including the sterilisation of dental instruments...
