Current knowledge of this disorder that has profound relevance to specialists in Oral and Maxillo-Facial Surgery, Oral Medicine and Radiology is reviewed.
Early surgical laser-assisted management of bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaws (BRONJ): a retrospective analysis of 101 treated sites with long-term follow-up.
The percentage of success obtained with a combined approach based on medical therapy, surgical (including laser-assisted) therapy, and LLLT (G4) is significantly higher than the percentage of improvement obtained in G1, G2, and G3.
Nd:YAG laser biostimulation in the treatment of bisphosphonate-associated osteonecrosis of the jaw: clinical experience in 28 cases.
Results achieved indicate that laser therapy has potential to improve management of BON, and clinical variables such as severity of symptoms, presence of pus, and closure of mucosal flaps before and after therapy were evaluated.
Nd:YAG laser versus traditional scalpel. A preliminary histological analysis of specimens from the human oral mucosa
If the thermal changes induced by the Nd:YAG laser may affect the histopathological diagnosis and the evaluation of the resection margins is established, the quality of incision was better and the width of overall tissue injuries was less in the specimens obtained with higher frequency and lower power.
Odontogenic myxofibroma: A concise review of the literature with emphasis on the surgical approach
MF is an extremely rare tumor and no agreement exists on the causes of its development and the choice of treatment should depend on variables such as localization, presence of a primary or of a recurrent lesion, age, general medical conditions and aesthetic needs of the patient.
Medication-Related Osteonecrosis of the Jaw Around Dental Implants: Implant Surgery-Triggered or Implant Presence-Triggered Osteonecrosis?
Data confirms that not only surgical insertion of dental implants is a potential risk factor for the development of osteonecrosis but also the presence itself of the implant into the bone can be associated with this disease.
Motor-evoked potentials in masseter muscle by electrical and magnetic stimulation in intact alert man.
Different laser wavelengths comparison in the second-stage implant surgery: an ex vivo study
This ex vivo study showed that laser utilization with the recommended parameters gives no risks of dangerous thermal elevation to the tissues and implants.
Intra-oral laser welding: an in vitro evaluation of thermal increase
It is shown that thermal increases in pulp chamber, sulcus, root and bone were biologically compatible and that intra-oral laser welding, at the parameters used in this work, seems to be harmless to the biological structures close to the welding and thermally affected zones.
The Effect of Age, Gender, and Insertion Site on Marginal Bone Loss around Endosseous Implants: Results from a 3-Year Trial with Premium Implant System
Bone levels were assessed on orthopantomography immediately after surgery and after 36 months and marginal bone loss (MBL) was calculated from their difference, consistent with the available literature.
