laser (english)

In cooperation with the World Federation for Laser Dentistry (WFLD), the magazine laser: international magazine of laser dentistry addresses all dental professionals worldwide using or interested in dental laser technology. Readers receive regular updates on the world of international laser dentistry by means of user-oriented case studies, scientific reports as well as summarised product information. The magazine is particularly focussing on reports from international scientific congresses and symposia as well as on the international activities of the World Federation for Laser Dentistry. This high-gloss English language magazine is published four times a year. Since 2015, additional German-speaking abstracts have given an overview about each article’s content. News articles in German complete the new function of laser as the official magazine of the DGL in Germany. laser thus has replaced Laser Journal, which had appeared in 17 annual volumes of four issues until the end of 2014.

Diode-laser assisted vital pulp therapy
Dr Maziar Mir, Prof. Dr Norbert Gutknecht, Dr Masoud Mojahedi, Dr Jan Tunér &
The preservation of pulp vitality is one of the most challenging approaches in endodontics. In Vital Pulp Therapy (VPT), after pulp exposure due to extensive dental caries, tooth injuries and iatrogenic events, the intact portion and uninflamed dental pulp is preserved with a suitable dressing at the exposure area.

Laser in soft tissue treatment
Hans-Joachim Koort, Germany
The combination of a 975 nm diode laser and a 2.2 MHz radio frequency generator in one device (LaserHF; MedLas Medical) has proven to be a unique and valuable solution for the dental soft tissue management. In search for optimal instruments for dental soft tissue treatment both laser and radio frequency devices have shown a satisfying performance. In both technologies, the rapid and locally precise heating of soft tissue is used for cutting as well as for coagulating...

Sealer placement in lateral/accessory canals — Utilising the Nd:YAP laser
Dr He-Kyong Kang & Dr John Palanci, USA

Therefore, the ability of filling lateral canals has been regarded as a measure of the endodontic treatment quality...

Marketing dentistry in a global economy
Chris Barrow, UK
"In an information-rich world, the wealth of information means a dearth of something else: a scarcity of whatever it is that information consumes. What information consumes is rather obvious: it consumes the attention of its recipients. Hence a wealth of information creates a poverty of attention.” These prophetic lines were shared by Nobel laureate and social scientist Dr Herbert Simon in 1971. It seems incredible to think that his words predate the Internet by 20 years...

Editorial: Effizienz & Innovation
Prof. Dr Norbert Gutknecht
Als ich vor zweieinhalb Monaten über die Ausstellungsfläche der IDS gelaufen bin, haben mich zwei Aspekte besonders berührt. Zum einen ist die Zahl der Teilnehmer an der IDS und die Menge der Aussteller gestiegen, zum anderen nehmen die Innovationen und digitalen Technologien einen immer breiteren Raum ein. Der Beruf des Zahnarztes (vormals eine rein mechanische Arbeitsweise) wird zunehmend ein Kom mandoplatz, umgeben von den unterschiedlichsten Technologien ? so auch den neuen modernen Lasergeräten. Wenn man meinte, nur vier oder fünf Laserhersteller auf dieser Ausstellung anzutreffen, so musste man sich bei dem Blick ins Ausstellerverzeichnis eines Besseren belehren lassen..
