Wavelengths

Prof. Norbert Gutknecht

As sunlight consists of different wavelengths and can only in this composition of wavelengths serve the vital biological requirements, future-oriented laser users have to learn that, although the application of a wavelength is important and good, the same wavelength cannot fulfil all biological and therapeutic demands. Based on this insight, the future of laser dentistry will be associated with the combination of specific wavelengths.

Preventive approach in paediatric dentistry using Er:YAG laser

Ani Belcheva, Maria Shindova & Georgi Tomov, Bulgaria

Modern dentistry has focused on preventive methods and conservative techniques to apply less-invasive procedures to tooth structure.1 Awareness towards the importance of preserving tooth tissue combined with a patient-friendly approach is becoming self-evident. It has been shown that operative dental treatment often leads to an increasing scale of more surgical and invasive treatments. Whenever possible, tissue should be preserved, and invasive treatment should be kept to a minimum. The best way to ensure maximum life for the natural tooth is to respect the healthy tissue and protect it from being damaged by using minimally-invasive techniques in restorative dentistry.2 ...

Laser-assisted osseointegration with a diode laser in Type I implant placement

Dr Maziar Mir, Prof. Norbert Gutknecht, Dr Masoud Mojahedi, Dr Jan Tunér, Prof. Ramin Mosharraf & Dr Masoud Shabani, Germany, Sweden & Iran

Implant placement is conventionally performed after healing of the extraction socket. However, with this method, undesirable outcomes can occur owing to the substantial period that elapses before clinicians can continue treatment, for example a reduction in bone level and the collapse of soft tissue. These unwanted results can compromise aesthetics in the anterior region significantly. Therefore, immediate (Type I) implant placement can be a golden opportunity to preserve the aesthetics. Fear of failure, especially in the case of an infected socket, is the greatest barrier to selecting Type I implant placement.1–5...

Treatment of mucocele with the Er:YAG laserA case report

Foteini Papanastasopoulou, Greece

Mucocele is a mucosal swelling due to a rupture of a salivary gland duct and accumulation of mucin in the surrounding soft tissue. It is a common lesion of the oral mucosa in children and young adults and often caused by local trauma. The size of the mucocele can range from 1 mm to a few centimetres and is asymptomatic. The most common area of appearance is the lower lip. Some mucoceles heal spontaneously after rupture. However, chronic lesions are treated by local surgical excision, cryotherapy and laser surgery...

Wellenlängen

Prof. Dr Norbert Gutknecht

So wie das Sonnenlicht aus den unterschiedlichsten Wellenlängen besteht und auch nur in dieser Zusammensetzung unterschiedlicher Wellenlängen die vitalen biologischen Anforderungen bedienen kann, so müssen auch zukunftsorientierte Laseranwender verstehen lernen, dass die Anwendung einer Wellenlänge zwar sehr wichtig und gut sein kann, dieselbe Länge aber nicht alle biologischen und therapeutischen Anforderungen erfüllt. Die Laserzahnheilkunde der Zukunft wird deshalb mit der gezielten Kombination von Wellenlängen assoziiert sein.
