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.

Use of the Er:YAG laser for initial treatment of chronic periodontitis
Prof. Ana Minovska, Macedonia; Dr Daniela Cvetanovska Stojceva, Macedonia; & Prof. Georgi Tomov, Bulgaria
Periodontitis denotes inflammatory destruction of the periodontal ligament and supporting bone. The course of periodontitis is characterised by intermittent exacerbations of the disease. Today, it is generally accepted that pathogenic bacterial plaque in the susceptible host triggers a complex inflammatory/immune response, which results in clinical inflammation and catabolic changes in the non-mineralised connective tissue and bone,1 followed by progressive tissue destruction and pocket formation...
A simple vision test based on the speckle effect
Prof. Dr Axel Donges, Germany
A non-accommodated, moving eye with no refractive error perceives a speckle pattern as stationary. If the speckle pattern moves with the motion of the head, the eye is long-sighted (hypermetropic); if it moves contrary to the motion, it is near-sighted (myopic)...
Periimplantitis and Er:YAG laser
Dr Carole Leconte, France
Periimplantitis is becoming increasingly prevalent (Fig. 1). Its aetiologies are varied and often connected. Among the existing treatments, the Erbium: YAG laser is possibly the least known, despite its numerous clinical advantages. Those include the removal of granulation tissue and tartar and the decontamination of the titanium while, at the same time, conserving healthy tissue and existing implant structures.
