Das in Kooperation der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Laserzahnheilkunde e.V. (DGL) und der 2018 gegründeten International Society for Laser Dentistry (ISLD) herausgegebene Magazin stellt sich in den Dienst des internationalen Know-how-Transfers in der Laserzahnmedizin. Analog zu dem seit 2000 sehr erfolgreich weltweit verlegten Magazin implants erhalten die Leser durch anwenderorientierte Fallberichte, wissenschaftliche Studien und komprimierte Produkt- und Veranstaltungsinformationen ein regelmäßiges Update aus der Welt der internationalen  Laserzahnmedizin. Einen besonderen Stellenwert haben in diesem Zusammenhang vor allem Berichte über die international stattfindenden Fachkongresse und Symposien sowie die internationalen Aktivitäten der DGL und ISLD. laser – international magazine of laser dentistry erscheint vierteljährlich und in englischer Sprache (BE).

Nd:YAG lasers in intraoral welding
Prof. Dr Carlo Fornaini, Italy
Laser welding was introduced in jewellery in the 1970s and later successfully used also by dental technicians.1 The wavelengths that were used firstly were CO2 and Nd:YAG, but, finally, the market was rapidly conquered by the latter because of the results that were obtained.2 Laser welding, in fact, gives a great number of advantages in contrast to traditional welding.
Perfect soft tissue management in the oral use
Hans J. Koort, Germany
The use of alternating electric current for bloodless interventions in the oral soft tissues has been established for nearly a century, first in the form of the electric knife, then later in the form of radio frequency devices. Laser devices have been introduced in the 1980s as new, additional tools and have become significantly more important until today...
Post-cure irradiation of pit and fissure sealant by diode laser - Part II
Nermin M.Yussif, MSc, Ali M. Saafan & Samah S. Mehani, Egypt
Due to its peculiar anatomical shape, the occlusal surface is highly susceptible to carious lesions.1 Several methods of prevention have been tried to reduce its prevalence.2 A widely used technique affecting the caries incidence is fissure sealing3, in which the fissure systems are sealed with a material. This material is retained on the enamel surface either by the acid etch technique (resin sealants) or through chemical bonding (GIC sealants).4 The preventive benefits of such treatment rely directly upon the sealant‘s ability to thoroughly fill pits, fissures, and/or anatomical defects, as well as to remain completely intact and bonded to enamel surfaces without marginal micro leakage at the resin-tooth interface and consequent development of a carious process underneath the sealant material.5,6...
Diode lasers for periodontal treatment - The story continues
Drs Fay Goldstep & George Freedman, Canada
Lasers have been a part of the dental scene for over 25 years. Unfortunately, they used to be perceived as large, unwieldy, difficult-to-use, expensive machines and thus they were largely ignored. Affordable, effective, user-friendly diode lasers seem to have arrived on the scene only recently. In fact, the diode laser has proven itself to be the ideal soft-tissue handpiece in a considerably short time...
Photodynamic therapy with the new active ingredient Perio Green
Dr Ralf Borchers, MSc, Bünde
Indocyanine green combats pathogenic bacteria simply, effectively and without side effects. Until now, systematic periodontal treatments have often required the additional use of systemic antibiotic medication as well as the normal manual treatment involving cleaning, curettage and after-care in order to eliminate treatment-resistant pathogens more effectively and to achieve a long-lasting therapeutic effect...
Er:YAG laser etching of hypoplastic enamel
Prof. Dr Georgi Tomov, Dr Ana Minovska, Birute Rakauskaite & Laura Navasaityte
Enamel hypoplasia is the most common abnormality of development and mineralisation of human teeth. The lesion is characterised by a quantitative defect in enamel tissue resulting from an undetermined metabolic injury to the formative cells—the ameloblasts.1 Clinically, enamel hypoplasia is seen as a roughened surface with discreet pitting or circumferential band-like irregularities which posteruptively acquire a yellow brown stain.1 ...
SEM analysis of the laser activation of final irrigants for smear layer removal
Dr Vivek Hegde, Dr Naresh Thukral, Dr Sucheta Sathe, Dr Shachi Goenka & Dr Paresh Jain, India
The complete restoration of the root canal space with an inert filling material and the creation of a fluid tight seal are the goals of successful endodontic therapy.1 In order to create a fluid tight seal, it is imperative that the endodontic -filling material closely adapts or bonds to the tooth structure. This, however, is impaired by the presence of a smear layer, which invariably forms after endodontic instrumentation.2,3 The smear layer contains organic material, odontoblastic processes, bacteria and blood cells...

Master of Science in Lasers in Dentistry - Professional education programme
Patients are increasingly seeking alternative therapies, expecting their dentist to be well informed and to provide information regarding more gentle treatments. Through the use of laser technology, dentists can meet these expectations and provide patients with added benefits compared to more traditional methods...
IDS 2013 sets new records
The 35th International Dental Show (IDS) posted record-setting results when it closed on -Saturday, 16 March 2013, after five days in Cologne. The world’s leading dental trade fair attracted 125,000 trade visitors from 149 countries. That figure represents an increase of six per cent compared to the previous event. Records were also set in terms of the number of exhibitors and the occupied exhibition area. This year 2,058 companies ( 5.3 per cent) from 56 countries presented a wide range of innovations, products and services on 150,000 square metres of exhibition area ( 3.4 per cent). With 68 per cent of the exhibitors and 48 per cent of the visitors coming from abroad, the fair was also more international than ever before...
Why use laser if you can do without? Invitation to the 22nd Annual Congress of DGL
Our 22nd International Annual Congress, which takes place in Berlin from 15 to 16 November, 2013, has the provocative title “Why use laser if you can do without?”. On the one hand, this choice of title implies critical questions by dentists who have not yet included laser to their repertoire. On the other hand, scientific evidence will be presented which states that professional and purposeful application of laser technology can entail decisive advantages for both patient and dentist in various indications...
