In cooperation with the German Association for Laser Dentistry (DGL) and the International Society for Laser Dentistry (ISLD), founded in 2018, laser – international magazine of laser dentistry addresses all of those dental professionals worldwide who are using or are interested in dental laser technology. Analogues to the great success of the implants magazine which has been firstly introduced in 2000, the laser magazine also provides regular updates from the world of international laser dentistry in the form of user-orientated case studies, scientific reports as well as custom-made product information focusing on the international laser market. In this context a high focus is being set on reports from international scientific congresses and symposia. The laser magazine keeps the reader up-to-date concerning the international activities of the DGL and ISLD. Laser – international magazine of laser dentistry is being published four times per year.

Editorial: History carved with laser
Dr Youssef Sedky
The applications of laser therapy in dentistry have added great value for our treatment modalities and results. Through the use of this state-of-the-art technology in our daily practice, we are among the few with access to this niche specialty. Looking back in history, it is evident that the benefits of light therapy had already been under-stood and applied thousands of years ago, by the Chinese, Greek and ancient Egyptian civilisations...

Effect of duration of Er,Cr:YSGG laser etching on dentine morphology
Drs Farnaz Mahdisiar, Alireza Mirzaei, Alireza Fallah, Saeedeh Akhoundan, Iran & Prof. Nobert Gutknecht, Germany
The conventional method of cavity preparation by rotary instruments is not favoured by many patients. On the other hand, dentine prepared as such is covered with smear layer, which is composed of dental hard tissue, carious debris, and residual bacteria. This decreases the dentine surface energy and prevents adequate adhesion to dentine.1, 2 Dentine is a major component of teeth...
The treatment approach to caries using the Er:YAG laser
Prof. Roly Kornblit, Italy
Dental caries, a disease process with a multifactorial aetiology in which bacteria assume an important role, is still the most common pathology in dentistry. The traditional approach of restorative dentistry usually has been to remove the decayed tissue using mechanical or man-ual instruments and to restore the residual tooth substance with various materials according to functional requirements. A modern, alternative approach to management of caries can instead aim not only at eliminating the decay but also at treating the infection..
Severe periimplantitis treated with the Er,Cr:YSGG laser
Dr Theodoros Tachmatzidis, Dr Dimitris Strakas, Dr Nikolaos Dabarakis & Ioanna Betsani, Greece
Peri-implantitis is characterised by bleeding on probing, suppuration and radiographic evidence of bone loss.1 The relevant literature has reported many methods for treat-ing periimplantitis.2–6 Surgical access is recommended in defects of more than 2 mm in depth in order to achieve complete removal of granulation tissue and gain access for implant surface decontamination.7, 8 ...
Crown lengthening in the aesthetic zone
Dr Habib F. Zarifeh, DDS, MS, M.Sc.; Dr Nada El Osta, DDS, PhD; Dr Dany Salemeh, MS & Dr Sami El Toum, PhD, Lebanon
In the following article, two methods for correction or reduction of minor gummy smile will be discussed: conventional surgery and laser-assisted surgery. The aes-thetic outcomes of the two methods will be compared, and differences in pain, discomfort, swelling, predictability of the results and patient satisfaction according to the visual analogue scale will be discussed. It will be shown that crown lengthening with a dental laser can be a viable alternative to conventional surgery, for there are noticeable differences regarding postoperative complaints, and predictable and stable aesthetic results can be achieved this way...
Photoacoustic cavitation effects in oral surgery
Dr Evgeniy Mironov, Bulgaria
The solid-state lasers used in dentistry were invented almost 30 years ago and they were initially aimed at creating new possibilities for the treatment of both hard and soft tissue with less tissue loss and mechanical or acoustic stress...
The Dr Mir laser-assisteddental implant technique
Dr Maziar Mir & Prof. Norbert Gutknecht, Germany
Since the 1970s, implant dentistry has revolved around the key idea that an incision in the gingiva has to be made in order to successfully place an implant. However, many surgical kits today feature a punch tool and many clinicians recommend punching a hole into the gingiva, in which the implant should subsequently be placed...
SSP/SWEEPS endodontics with the SkyPulse Er:YAG laser
Dr Tomaž Ivanušicˇ, Slovenia
The goal of endodontic therapy is to eliminate patho-genic substances from the root canal system. However, standard mechanical instrumentation leaves a significant portion of the complex root canal system uninstrumented. Additionally, the mechanical instrumentation itself creates a smear layer and an accumulation of de-bris that need to be removed as well...
