Use of lasers in periodontal bone defects - A case report with six years follow-up

Prof. Dr Aslan Yasar Gokbuget & Necla Aslı Kocak, Turkey

The use of lasers in periodontal treatment has been well documented over the past ten years. Lasers can be used for initial periodontal therapy and surgical procedures. When used in deep periodontal pockets with associated bone defects, not only does laser remove the diseased granulation tissue and associated bacteria, but it also promotes osteoclast and osteoblast activity, often resulting in bone regrowth. This usage becomes more complicated because the periodontium consists of both hard and soft tissues. The many lasers available, such as CO2, Nd:YAG and diode lasers, can be used in periodontics because of their excellent ablation and haemostatic characteristics...

Mucocele of the lip treated by using 980 nm diode laser

Dr Merita Bardhoshi, Prof. Dr Norbert Gutknecht, Dr Esat Bardhoshi, Dr Alketa Qafmolla, Dr Edit Xhajanka & Dr Neada Hysenaj, Albania & Germany

Mucoceles are defined as mucus-filled cavities that can appear in the oral cavity, paranasal sinuses or lacrimal sac. They are characterised by the accumulation of liquid or mucoidmaterial, giving rise to a rounded, well circumscribed transparent and bluish-colored lesion of variable size.1,3,5,7 The consistency is tipically soft and fluctuant in response to palpation. Mucoceles are painless and tend to relapse. Etiologically, most mucoceles are considered to be secondary to traumatic or obstructive disorders of the mainly minor salivary glands—the preferential location being the humid mucosa of the lower lip...

Pain reduction of recurrent aphthous stomatitis - Evaluation of class 2M diode laser as a home care device

Dr Maziar Mir, MSc, Dr Masoud Mojahedi, MSc, Dr Jan Tunér DDS, Dr Hassan Adalatkhah, MSc, Dr Amir Mansour Shirani, MSc & Dr Masoud Shabani, Germany & Iran

Recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) is a common condition, restricted to the mouth, and typically starts in childhood or adolescence as recurrent small, round or ovoid ulcers with circumscribed margins, erythematous haloes, and yellow or gray floors. RAS has three clinical types: minor, major and herpetiform ulcers. Ulcers with similar clinical features (aphthous-like ulcers) may be associated with systemic conditions such as Behçet syndrome, auto-inflammatory syndromes, gastrointestinal disease or immune defects such as HIV/AIDS.The etiology of recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) is not entirely clear. A genetic basis exists for some RAS...

Er:YAG laser and composite resin ablation

Carlo Fornaini, Italy

In 1954, Buonocore1 initiated a real revolution in dentistry by proposing the possibility of obtaining stronger adhesion between composite resin and enamel through an etching process using orthophosphoric acid. The practical application of his theory completely changed the rules of conservative dentistry, shifting from the concept of “extension for prevention”2 to that of “minimally invasive dentistry”3 and, subsequently it was applied, with several advantages, also in orthodontics4 and pediatric dentistry.5 Although such adhesive systems are largely employed in dentistry today, there are still some unsolved problems...

Interview: LaserCUSING: Laser melting with metals

Dr Florian Bechmann

If there’s one thing currently generating excitement in terms of production methods, it’s 3-D printers. At all the trade fairs, 3-D printers are the big attraction in the industry. Does this signal a departure from a form-based way of thinking in favor of the geometrical freedom of components produced using additive methods? Interested parties are already finding out whether it’s possible to print Lego blocks, or - more ambitiously - food items. With so much creativity out there, we wanted to explore what can be accomplished realistically using laser melting with metals in an industrial context. We spoke with Dr Florian Bechmann, Head of Development at Concept Laser, about the current state of technology, trends and options for the near future...
