Editorial: Welcome to the WFLD World Congress in Barcelona
Prof Dr Norbert Gutknecht, Editor-in-Chief
It’s hard to believe that already two years have passed since we said Goodbye in Dubai. It seems time has passed faster and faster, maybe because more and more dental events are on display. Today, hardly anybody is able to visit all the conferences and congresses which are offered...

Laser in oral surgery and medicine
Antonio Batista-Cruzado, Daniel Torres-Lagares, Blanca Moreno-Manteca, Gerd Volland, Patricia Bargiela-Perez, Martin Jorgen & Jose-Luis Gutierrez-Perez, Spain
The laser has been used in the field of oral surgery for a wide range of indications. In this article, we focus on its surgical uses. The success of the surgical treatment of lesions in the oral cavity depends greatly on knowledge of the aetiology and histology of the lesion. There are pathologies that can be treated with laser, such as cancer sores and hyperkeratosis. Others, like candidiasis, cannot be treated with laser. Furthermore, laser has quickly become a predictable and favourable treatment modality for leukoplakia, haemangioma and epulis...
Influences on the treatment of recurrent aphthous ulcers with the Nd:YAG laser - An initial first clinical investigation (Part I)
Dr Iris Brader, Germany
The Greek word aphthi, which means “burning, to set on fire or to inflame”, was first used by Hippocrates for the clinical symptoms of recurrent aphthous stomatitis (Ship 2000; Scully 2002). These ulcerations affect 5 to 25 % of the general population and in select groups, for example students at examination time, prevalence can be more than 50 % (Reichardt 2000; Scully 2002). The typical lesion involves self-limited, painful, clearly defined, shallow, round or oval 1 to 3 mm ulcers, each with a shallow necrotic centre. They are covered with a yellow-greyish pseudomembrane and are surrounded by minimally raised margins and an erythematous halo, and they tend to heal within ten to 14 days. We differentiate between three forms: minor, major and herpetiform aphthae (Ship 2000; Scully 2002; Scully 2003)...
Treatment of chronic periodontitis by laser and LED-PDT light: An in vivo study
Dr G. Karakitsos & Dr J. Karakitsos-Kurz, Greece
Periodontitis is a very common disease among adults, with approximately 80 % having gingivitis and periodontitis, and 65 % showing signs of periodontitis.1 It is a major cause of tooth loss in adults and primarily considered an anaerobic bacterial infection, caused by the red complex species. Bacteria within a biofilm community, as well as enzymes, endotoxins, and other cytotoxic factors from these bacteria, lead to tissue destruction and the initiation of chronic inflammation...

The management of pyogenic granuloma with the 980 nm diode laser - A case report
Dr Merita Bardhoshi, Albania
Pyogenic granuloma (PG) is a benign non-neoplastic mucocutaneous lesion. It is a reactional response to constant minor trauma and can be related to hormonal changes. In the mouth, PG is manifested as a sessile or pedunculated, resilient, erythematous, exophytic papule or nodule with a smooth or lobulated surface that bleeds easily.1, 2, 3 The size of PG varies from 2 mm to 2 cm in diameter. Occasionally, the lesions may reach a diameter of up to 5 cm.7, 9 PG preferentially affects the gingiva, but may also occur on the lips, tongue, oral mucosa and palate...
Bleaching: New approaches to a traditional minimally invasive therapy - CosmEt(h)ics vs. aesthEt(h)ics
Dr Kresimir Simunovic & Monica Tuzza, Switzerland
Tooth whitening has a long, historical tradition that extends back to the very first centuries AD. Along with tooth extractions, it was an accepted practice already in medieval times, performed by applying aqua fortis (a solution of nitric acid) after a simple rough polishing of the enamel surface. The procedure was performed by the “dental surgeons” on duty in those days, known as barbers...
Effective treatment of periodontal problem areas - Combined therapy
Prof Frank Liebaug & Dr Ning Wu, Germany & China
In systematic periodontal therapy, furcation treatment is still quite a challenge for the dentist. Because of the difficulties in the handling of this special treatment area, various therapy approaches have been discussed over the past few years. For instance, the combined use of laser and gradually released chlorhexidine xanthan gel supports the remission of inflammation considerably...
