Rocca JP1, France, Cianfrani C2, Italy, Nammour S3, Belgium, Bertrand MF4, France
Periapical surgery is a common procedure used in endodontics to resolve treatment failures when root end access is impossible and apical resection may be approached using different methods. The aim of this study was to assess the root end cutting efficiency of an Er,Cr:YSGG laser, its capability to prepare a retrograde cavity and value the microleakage of the retro-filled cavities and to compare with conventional bur methodologies. 24 human single rooted teeth were endodontically prepared and root canals were filled with a warm gutta-percha technique. Samples were randomly divided into two groups and retrograde cavities were prepared as follows: ...

Use of laser technology in the endodontic treatment
Sharonit Sahar-Helft, Israel
Laser technology is being developed very quickly, as well as the understanding of laser interaction with biological tissues. The development of new delivery systems, including thin and flexible fibers and new endodontic tips, has made it possible to apply this technology in various endodontic procedures. The purpose of this article is to describe the clinical applications of lasers in endodontics where conventional treatments cannot provide comparable results or are less effective.
Depigmentation of gingivae and lip with Digital Pulsed Diode Laser-an integral part of Cosmetic Dentistry
