Prof Dr Norbert Gutknecht
Sometimes we wonder about the content of discussions about the use of lasers between universities and private offices. For decades we have had to listen to arguments such as “if you use a laser you will carbonize the enamel” or “you will overheat and necrotize the soft tissue or pulpal tissue” or “you will destroy root canal structures” or “you will produce micro cracks on root surfaces” and so on. All of these arguments have been investigated seriously and for many years we have gained a lot of evidence on the beneficial effects of lasers used on different types of tissues...

Effect of diode laser on enamel fissure system - Morphological and microhardness analysis
Ali M. Saafan, Samah S. Mehani & Nermin M. Yussif, Egypt
Although a declining incidence of dental caries has been observed worldwide, it is still the most prevalent disease in childhood and adolescence.1 Several methods of prevention have sought to reduce caries prevalence,2 such as fluoride application, sealants, preventive resin restorations and antibacterial therapy, which can reverse the caries process.3 Nowadays, sealing materials are gaining acceptance in the scientific community, although they still present some disadvantages: contamination of the operation field and contraction during polymerisation. These issues have led researchers to investigate alternative solutions in order to overcome these limits.4
Laser treatment of dentine hypersensitivity: An overview III
Dr Ute Botzenhart, Dr Andreas Braun & Prof Matthias Frentzen, Germany
More than two decades ago, laser applications in the treatment of dentine hypersensitivity were introduced to dentistry. Many clinical studies using different laser types have been published since. This overview summarises the basic and clinical aspects, including treatment protocols.
Diode lasers: The soft-tissue handpiece
Dr Fay Goldstep & Dr George Freedman, Canada
While dental lasers have been commercially available for several decades, and their popularity among patients is unparalleled, the dental profession has taken to this treatment modality rather slowly. Lasers have been thoroughly documented in the dental literature. They are an exciting technology, widely used in medicine, kind to tissue, and excellent for healing...
Hygiene requirements for dental laser fibers
Hans-Joachim Koort, Germany
Methods including laser application have been successfully established in the clinical work, especially in soft tissue surgery, periodontics and endodontics as well as in therapeutic applications (e.g. in photodynamic therapy) and in bleaching. Lasers can be used successfully for the decontamination of periodontal pockets (Fig. 1) and for the disinfection of root canals (Fig. 2). Although laser devices have been widely adapted to the dental needs in terms of performance parameters, design, size and mobility, only a few enhancements have been made with respect to the fibre-based systems...
The use of the LiteTouch Er:YAG laser in peri-implantitis treatment
Prof Tzi Kang Peng, Taiwan & Prof Georgi Tomov, Bulgaria
With oral implantology experience its Renaissance, the growing incidence of peri-implantitis worldwide today is point of interest for both scientists and clinicians. Peri-implantitis is a disease of inflammatory nature which leads to the loss of the implant when left untreated.11,24 The aetiological factors of peri-implantitis are very similar to periodontitis.2,24 Different treatment modalities for the inflammatory soft tissue and bone lesions in peri-implants have been proposed—antibiotics, antiseptics, mechanical debridement, and surgical procedures have been suggested, depending on the grade of the clinical and radiographic manifestations.6,7,10,16,17
Up-to-date vestibuloplasty at the age of implant dentistry
Dr Darius Moghtader, Germany
Whether nowadays, in the age of implant dentistry, one can still perform vestibuloplasty in good conscience, is a question constantly being raised. In the pre-implant era, vestibuloplasty was applied to deepen the vestibule with the aim of lining the vestibular trough with functional mucosa in order to form a valve-type margin.1 Vestibuloplasty today continues to be used for this purpose if the patient’s financial resources preclude implantation...
Quantum Square Pulse Er:YAG lasers in clinical practice
Evgeniy Mironov, Zhasmina Mironova, Bulgaria
Er:YAG lasers are becoming increasingly popular in every day dental practice due to a higher level of patient acceptance and greater precision and procedure quality. There are many advantages over conventional mechanical preparations, such as lower increases in pulp temperature, less pain for the patient, less risk of secondary caries,1,2,3 and improved strength of adhesion of the composite resin to dentin prepared by low-energy SSP Er:YAG laser pulses.4 ...
