Lasers have been used for many years in oral surgery and implant dentistry. In some indications, laser treatment has become state of the art as compared to conventional techniques. This article is a comprehensive review of new laser applications in oral surgery and implant dentistry. One of the most interesting developments over the last years was the introduction of the 9.6-μm CO2 laser. It has been shown in the recent literature that the use of this new device can preserve tissue with almost… Expand
Uses of Laser in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Because of their many advantages, lasers have become indispensable in OMS as a modality for soft tissue surgery. Based on manufacturer estimates, approximately 10% to 20% of all oral andExpand

  • 2010
The erbium-doped yttrium aluminium garnet (Er:YAG) laser has emerged as a possible alternative to conventional methods of bone ablation because of its wavelength of 2.94 μm, which coincides with theExpand
Using of Diode Laser (940 nm) in Orofacial Region
TLDR
Diode laser (940 nm) can be used in oral and facial soft tissue surgery because of easy application, better coagulation, no need for suturing, less swelling and pain, as well as for its capability for treatment of physiologic gingival pigmentation. Expand
In vitro biological outcome of laser application for modification or processing of titanium dental implants
TLDR
It seems that laser radiation plays a vital role in cell response to dental implants; however, it is necessary to accomplish more studies using different laser types and parameters on various cells to offer a more conclusive result. Expand
Different laser wavelengths comparison in the second-stage implant surgery: an ex vivo study
TLDR
This ex vivo study showed that laser utilization with the recommended parameters gives no risks of dangerous thermal elevation to the tissues and implants. Expand
DIODE LASER APPLICATION IN SOFT TISSUE ORAL SURGERY (CASE REPORT)
TLDR
The diode laser can be used as a modality for oral soft tissue surgery and provides relatively bloodless surgical and post surgical courses with minimal swelling and scarring. Expand
Diode laser application in soft tissue oral surgery.
TLDR
The diode laser can be used as a modality for oral soft tissue surgery and provides relatively bloodless surgical and post surgical courses with minimal swelling and scarring. Expand
The application of diode laser in the treatment of oral soft tissues lesions. A literature review
TLDR
The diode laser can be used with very good results for the removal of lesions in soft tissues, being used in small exophytic lesions due to their easy application, adequate coagulation, no need to suture and the slightest inflammation and pain. Expand
The diode laser as an electrosurgery replacement
In 2008, Dr. Gordon Christensen wrote an article in JADA comparing the soft tissue cutting abilities of diode lasers to those of electrosurgery (radiosurgery) units.1 In comparing these twoExpand
Low energy KTP laser in oral soft tissues surgery: A 52 patients clinical study
TLDR
KTP laser with low parameters permits to perform oral surgery with good pain control and good wound healing and a greater number of clinical cases are however necessary to confirm the result obtained. Expand

New aspects of lasers in oral and craniomaxillofacial surgery
TLDR
Intraoperatively used photodynamic therapy or peri-implant care of ailing implants with the CO2 laser seems to be more of value than conventional methods, however, further studies are required to assess standard protocols. Expand

TLDR
Although the Er:YAG has been approved for hard tissue use in the United States and currently is being used in general dentistry, it is still not yet practical or proven for large-volume osseous or extraction surgery, in which the greatest opportunity for innovation and clinical use exists. Expand
Peri-implant care of ailing implants with the carbon dioxide laser.
TLDR
The hypothesis that peri-implant defects can be treated successfully by laser decontamination without damaging the surrounding tissues in the dog model is supported and further investigations will be required to determine the clinical efficacy of the treatment. Expand
[Tissue damage and regeneration after laser surgery using different scanning systems].
TLDR
Compared to the defocused laser ablation, both scanning systems seem to have benefits within these parameters, but the Silktouch scanner clinically showed a homogeneous ablation rate with less carbonization than the Swiftlase scanner. Expand
Surface properties of endosseous dental implants after NdYAG and CO2 laser treatment at various energies.
TLDR
This study supports that CO(2) laser treatment appears more useful than NdYAG laser treatment and CO( 2) laser does not damage titanium implant surface, which should be of value when uncovering submerged implants and treating peri-implantitis. Expand
Effects of diode and Nd:YAG laser irradiation on titanium discs: a scanning electron microscope examination.
TLDR
It was concluded that the diode laser (980 nm) does not damage titanium surfaces, which should be of value when uncovering submerged implants and treating peri-implantitis. Expand
Clinical evaluation of an Er:YAG laser for nonsurgical treatment of peri-implantitis: a pilot study.
TLDR
It was concluded that at 6 months following treatment both therapies led to significant improvements of the investigated clinical parameters, and ERL resulted in a statistically significant higher reduction of BOP than C. Expand
Conventional Versus Laser‐Assisted Therapy of Periimplantitis: A Five‐Year Comparative Study
TLDR
It is thought that integrating diode laser light decontamination in the approved treatment schemes for periimplantitis and parodontitis contributes considerably to the success of this therapy. Expand
Lethal photosensitization, autogenous bone, and e-PTFE membrane for the treatment of peri-implantitis: preliminary results.
TLDR
The short-term results of this study corroborate the efficacy of the applied treatment method in prolonging the service time of dental implants involved with peri-implantitis. Expand
Influence of different treatment approaches on non-submerged and submerged healing of ligature induced peri-implantitis lesions: an experimental study in dogs.
TLDR
It was concluded that (i) OS improved the outcome of treatment in comparison with CNS and (ii) ERL seemed to be more suitable to promote re-osseointegration than PCM and VUS. Expand
