Editorial: Cologne in the eyes of laser dentistry
Dr Georg Bach
I must confess that the headline of this editorial is a little presumptuous - and of course, not only is Cologne in the focus of the dental community, but the whole dental family is watching the city on the Rhine. This time, for sure, it is not because of the carnival, but because of IDS, International Dental Show, which starts only shortly after.

Laser versus conventional therapies
Cristiane Meira Assunção, Joanna Tatith Pereira, Renata Schlesner Oliveira & Dr Jonas de Almeida Rodrigues, Brazil
In recent years, several studies have been conducted on the clinical applications of laser in dentistry. At the same time, there has been a marked emergence of organisations in support of the use of laser in dentistry. In the last decades, laser therapy has been used in dentistry as an adjunct or alternative to conventional approaches. In this paper, the following topics will be reviewed: the application of laser in caries prevention and diagnosis, hard- and soft-tissue treatments, and periodontal and endodontic procedures. There is a large research effort into new indications for laser in dentistry. It is expected that laser will become an essential component of the dentist’s armamentarium...
Photodynamic therapies – Blue versus Green
Dr Michael Hopp & Prof. Dr Reiner Biffar, Germany
After the successful introduction of antimicrobial photodynamic therapy based on methylene and toluidine blue, a green medical colouring agent which is activated at 810 nm has become available. The following article illustrates its indication, range of effects and therapy efficiency in comparison to the classical blue agents. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) as a minimally invasive oncological method performed with injected photosensitisers has been advanced to a non-invasive, surface-oriented therapy in dentistry...
Becoming kissable: Laser-assisted haemangioma removal
Dr Darius Moghtader, Germany
This is the story of how an attractive young woman became kissable once again, thanks to laser therapy...
Er:YAG Garnet in laser-assisted crown lengthening
Dr Avi Reyhanian, Israel
This article describes and demonstrates the use of the Erbium:YAG 2,940 nm laser system (LiteTouch, Syneron Medical Ltd.) as a central tool in the treatment of osseous crown lengthening, and the advantages this wavelength offers versus the use of conventional methods...
Long-term treatment of peri-implant lesions in geriatric dentistry
Dr Georg Bach, Germany
In recent years, photodynamic therapy has gained many new users in laser dentistry, giving it an enormous push forward. This therapy is minimally invasive and long-lasting. A multitude of scientific studies on the therapy have been conducted and it has a uniform nomenclature, established during the last meeting of the DGL (German Association for Laser Dentistry). During this meeting, the difference between “real” photodynamic therapy and one whose sensitiser has its own (antibacterial) properties was established. The following case report describes the minimally invasive use of a photodynamic therapy system with a green sensitiser in geriatric dentistry (treatment of periimplant lesions)...
X-Runner Er:YAG dental laser application
Prof. Dr Carlo Fornaini, Italy
The notion of utilising laser technology in conservative dentistry was proposed in 1990 by Hibst and Keller, who introduced the possibility of using an Er:YAG laser as alternative to conventional instruments such as the turbine and micro-motor.1,2 Widespread interest in employing this new technology stems from a number of significant advantages, as described in several scientific studies. Thanks to the affinity of the Er:YAG laser wavelength to water and hydroxyapatite, laser technology allows for efficient ablation of hard dental tissues without the risk of micro- and macro-fractures, as have been observed with the use of conventional rotating instruments.3-5 The dentin surface treated by laser appears clean, without a smear-layer, and with the tubules open and clear...
