Editorial: DGL and its role in evidence-based dentistry
Prof. Dr Norbert Gutknecht, Editor-in-Chief
In order to fulfill its claim to be a scientific-oriented, science-based dental society, the German Society for Laser Dentistry has chosen the motto “Evidence-based Dentistry” for this year’s annual congress. It is undisputable that laser application has not met the qualitative demands of evidence-based dentistry for many years. Instead, laser dentistry has developed from therapeutically useful and successful applications. In spite of this, already since it was founded, DGL has always aimed at supporting scientific-based laser applications in dentistry. This objective, the associated efforts and gradual successes have finally led to DGL being fully integrated within the German Society of Dental, Oral and Craniomandibular Sciences (DGZMK) which is the scientific umbrella organization of all dental societies...

Er:YAG laser in the bonding and debonding steps of orthodontic treatment
Prof. Carlo Fornaini, Italy
The Er:YAG laser was first proposed in 1990 by Hibst and Keller to ablate hard dental tissues. Today it is employed in conservative dentistry as an alternative to rotating instruments.1, 2 A study based on patient questionnaires demonstrated that, in term of satisfaction, Er:YAG dental treatment represents an effective technique that may improve patient cooperation and diminish fears associated with the dental office, particularly in pediatric patients.3 This is also a reason to suggest its application in the field of orthodontics, where cooperation and good relationships between the patient and operator are strictly necessary for full success of a treatment. In this paper we describe the utilisation of the Er:YAG laser in the bonding and debonding steps of orthodontic treatments...

A combined device for optimal soft tissue applications in laser dentistry
Hans J. Koort, Dr Michael Hopp, Germany & Prof. Dr D. Gabric Panduric, Croatia
The use of alternating electric current for bloodless interventions in the oral soft tissues has been established for nearly a century, first in the form of the electric knife (cauter), then later as radiofrequency devices. Laser devices were introduced in the 1980s as new, additional tools and they have strongly gained in importance today. One particular question often emerges: What are the similarities between diode lasers and radiofrequency generators and what makes them different? What is their value for dental applications?...

Dentures produced using 3-D printing versus -casting and milling
Redaktion
Non-precious metal alloys (NEM) are enjoying increased demand in dental technology. Additive manufacturing with laser melting ensures the uniformity and accuracy of ceramic-veneered, non-precious metal restorations created from dust and light. Are the traditional manufacturing processes of dental technicians, such as casting and milling, making a comeback? We spoke with Master Dental Technician Dieter Spitzer of Unicim, a manufacturer of dental restorations based in Berschis in the Swiss canton of St. Gallen.
