Editorial: Laser- - useful and reasonable
Prof. Dr. Norbert Gutknecht, President of DGL
Laser is not only an expert medical or dental discipline, but also a technology which, thanks to its versatility, can be applied on its own or in addition to other treatments for a variety of different medical and dental purposes. Moreover, there is not just “the one and only laser”, but lasers of different wavelengths. Since students do not learn anything about laser application during their studies, e.g. that laser application is based on biophysical light--tissue interactions, it is highly important for every responsible dentist to acquire the necessary knowledge about lasers.

Case Report: The use of the Er:YAG in laser-assisted broken abutment screw treatment
Avi Reyhanian, Israel, Steven Parker, United Kingdom, Joshua Moshonov, Israel, Natan Fuhrman, Israel
Dental implants are a functional and aesthetic solution to partial and total edentulism. Although the overall success rate of implant dentistry is very high, over 90% of the treatment modality is not free of complications and dental implants occasionally fail. The chronic loosening or fracturing of implant screws continue to be a problem in restorative practices and generally are challenging to remove. This report describes and demonstrates the management and technique used for the removal of fractured screw fragments and the successful utilization of the Er:YAG laser as an important auxiliary tool...

Laser phototherapy in Bell’s palsy - A case report
Profa Aparecida Maria Cordeiro Marques*, Luiz Guilherme Pinheiro Soares*, Dr Cristina Maria do Nascimento*,Alberto de Aguiar Pires Valença Neto*, Roberta Cordeiro Marques*, Dr Antonio Luiz Barbosa Pinheiro*, Brazil
Bell’s palsy is a sudden idiopathic peripheral palsy of the facial nerve. This condition is caused by some kind of damage to the VII cranial nerve that causes either complete or partial of the facial mimics.3 It may be associated or not to gustative disturbance, hyper salivation, and of eye and ear disturbances.8 Its diagnosis is by the exclusion of any other causes that may cause the palsy of the facial nerve as its etiology remains unclear.2,11 It has been demonstrated that herpes virus may cause this type of palsy due to reactivation of the virus or by imunomediated post-viral nerve demielinization.12,13 Most cases of Bells’ palsy recover without treatment. Besides the unbalance of the facial esthetic and some sensorial symptoms, the acute phase of this disease is not associated to severe disturances.16 The condition has a annual incidence estimated of 20–30:100.000 people2,12 and has a good prognosis, with spontaneous resolution in 95% of the cases within 6–8 weeks...

Crown lengthening: The minimalinvasive laser surgical crown lengthening
Dr Thorsten Kuypers, Germany
The surgical crown lengthening is a procedure, which is probably not performed as often as it should be. There are multiple medical indications for this operation. Not only do we need it for example to modify the red-white aesthetics, but this operation should be done in many other cases. If a patient has too short clinical crowns, which would give not enough retention for restorations we should prepare a more suitable situation by surgical intervention. Especially with ceramic-restorations, which need adhesive attachment, we often have problems. The preparation margin should be supra- or paragingival. This is often not the case, so it is more difficult to have a clean and dry operation area, while attaching the restoration. If we would perform a surgical crown lengthening before preparation, things would be a lot easier afterwards. Last but not least we often have to distort the biological width. This will result in chronically inflamed areas around the restoration. If we know that the defect of the tooth is going to force us to damage the biological width, we have to perform a surgical crown lengthening before starting with the planned treatment. So why is it, that this operation is performed so rarely? The answer is easy to give. The conventional treatment with scalpel, bone milling cutter, needle and thread is not easy, is bloody and risky and often associated with pain for our patients. In addition, we have to wait several weeks for the healing process to end, which will retard the actual treatment. Therefore it is obvious, that many dentists and patients will look for a compromise and will risk functional and/or aesthetic degradation...

The clinical use of the Er,Cr:YSGG laser in endodontic therapy
Justin Kolnick, USA
Total elimination of bacteria from infected root canal systems remains the most important objective of endodontic therapy. However, in spite of a plethora of new products and techniques, achieving this objective continues to elude our profession. Historically, endodontic treatment has focused on root canal disinfection with “entombment” of remaining bacteria within dentinal tubules and inaccessible areas of the root canal system. Although many factors have been implicated in the etiology of endodontic failures, it has become evident that these “entombed” bacteria play a pivotal role in the persistence of endodontic disease (Siqueira & Rocas 2008)...

AALZ Greece successfully established
Dimitris Strakas, Greece, Dominique Vanweersch, Germany
Laser assisted dentistry is already a reality for dentists worldwide. The possibilities for successful treatments using a laser as stand alone or supplementary to conventional techniques equipment are increased. Simultaneously the dentists realize that apart from a modern tool for every day practice, laser is a technology that involves a biophysical background and scientific knowledge that is not provided by the standard academic studies in dentistry...
