Editorial: Laser on the rise

Prof. Dr Norbert Gutknecht

After years of stagnation, all signs point to a significant revival of the laser market. This became obvious during this year’s DGL Congress, as visitor numbers have doubled compared to last year’s event and scientific contributions covered a broad spectre of topics and various wavelengths. For instance, wavelengths of 450 nm were rediscovered, which 20 years ago featured argon lasers exclusively and today is represented by modern diode-laser technology. The field of CO2 lasers (1,060 nm), which has been dominating the laser market in the previous years, was not only revived but it has “mutated”: A new CO2 wavelength of 9,300 nm was introduced, which is now applied in dentistry for the first time...

Laser phototherapy - an expansion of dental medicine

Jan Tunér, Sweden

Laser phototherapy has been used in dentistry for several decades. From an initial attitude of incredulity, there is an increasing awareness of the usefulness of this treatment option. Many indications are now recognised, such as reduction of inflammation, pain and oedema. Having the known basic mechanisms in the cellular energy transport system in mind, the wide variation of suggested applications no longer seems illogical. This article will not linger on what is already known and accepted, but rather make an effort to look ahead onto the most recent discoveries. Laser phototherapy (LPT) has been seen as a suitable intervention when some sort of pathology is present in tissue...

Denture Stomatitis: Treatment with Diode Laser

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

Denture stomatitis (DS) is one of the most common oral lesions in patients who wear a complete or partial removable denture. Very few cases regarding the treatment of denture stomatitis lesions by laser are reported in the literature. We present a case of treatment of DS without the use of any pharmaceutical aids...

A multidisciplinary approach with Er,Cr:YSGG - Aesthetic management of hard and soft tissues

Dr Christina Boutsiouki & Dr. Dimitris Strakas, Germany, Greece

The use of an Er,Cr:YSGG laser system in every day practice is beyond doubt a very helpful tool in the hands of a trained practitioner. It can be used safely both for hard and soft tissue treatments, with minimal or no use of anaesthesia, and complex cases with many different treatments can be treated in less time. Therefore patients enjoy the benefit of timesaving and pain-free treatments...

SIROLaser Blue - Three wavelenghts with one single device

Marlene Hartinger, Germany

The use of laser in dentistry has steadily grown over the past decades as lasers have repeatedly proven to be powerful surgical tools for both hard and soft tissue applications. There is no discipline in dentistry that does not benefit from the advantages of laser therapy. Among dental lasers currently available, diode lasers have become particularly popular due to their compact size, versatility and relatively affordable pricing...

Infection control in an era of emerging infectious diseases

Eve Cuny, USA

More than three decades have passed since the emergence of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) as a global pandemic. More than any other infection, it is possible to single out HIV as the primary stimulus for changing infection control practices in dentistry. Prior to the mid-1980s, it was uncommon for dentists and allied professionals to wear gloves during routine dental procedures. Many dental clinics did not use heat sterilisation, and disinfection of surfaces was limited to a cursory wipe with an alcohol-soaked gauze sponge. This was despite our knowledge that hepatitis B virus (HBV) had been spread in clusters in the offices and clinics of infected dentists and that dentists were clearly at occupational risk for acquiring HBV.

Laser treatment of sleep apnoea and snoring

Dr Andreas Klug, Germany

It has become common knowledge that lasers of different wavelengths can trigger varying reactions in tissues which are only reactive at a distinct wavelength. In addition, the intensity of those reactions at each special wavelength can be modified by changing the physical parameters of those monochromatic laser waves...

24th International Annual Congress of the DGLAll on the same wavelength

Lisa Meißner & Claudia Jahn, Germany

On 27 and 28 November, experts and members of the DGL (German Society for Laser Dentistry e.V.) met at the 24th International Annual Congress in Berlin, the vibrant capital of Germany. In cooperation with the scientific leaders of the DGL, LASER START UP was held as a parallel event of the congress. Here, beginners and professionals alike were given opportunities to inform themselves about modern lasers and ways to integrate them to the various treatment methods of their dental practice. In addition, an overview on all relevant products and companies was given...

The future today: Ultrashort pulsed laser - Die Zukunft in der Gegenwart: Ultrakurzpulslaser

Dr Anton Kasenbacher

As this year’s DGL Annual Congress has just been concluded and with the New Year lying ahead of us, author Dr Anton Kasenbacher gives another insight in future-oriented laser dentistry, focusing on the high versatility of ultrashort pulsed lasers.Zwischen dem gerade erfolgreich abgeschlossenen Jahreskongress der DGL und dem Beginn des neuen Jahres gibt Autor Dr. med. dent. Anton Kasenbacher in der letzten Ausgabe der laser dieses Jahres einen kleinen Ausblick in die Laserzahnmedizin der Zukunft, die bereits heute mit den versatilen Ultrakurzpunktlasern Realität geworden ist.

Editorial: Laser im Aufwind

Prof. Dr. Norbert Gutknecht

Nach Jahren der Stagnation stehen die Anzeichen auf eine deutliche Wiederbelebung des Lasermarktes besonders gut. Der gerade abgelaufene DGL-Kongress konnte diese Entwicklung sehr deutlich widerspiegeln. Die Zahl der Besucher hat sich mehr als verdoppelt und die wissenschaftlichen Beiträge erstrecken sich über ein sehr breites, schon seit Langem nicht mehr dagewesenes Spektrum an Vorträgen zu den unterschiedlichsten Wellenlängen. So wurde zum Beispiel nach ca. 20 Jahren erstmals wieder der Wellenlängenbereich um 450 nm entdeckt, der früher durch die Argonlaser abgedeckt wurde und heute durch eine moderne Diodenlasertechnologie dargestellt wird. Auch im Bereich der früher sehr dominant vertretenen CO2-Laser (10.600 nm) wurde nicht nur eine Neubelebung, sondern auch eine „Mutation“ der CO2-Wellenlänge vorgestellt, des erstmals in der Zahnheilkunde eingesetzten 9.300-nm-CO2-Lasers.
