Hard dental tissues laser welding: a new help for fractured teeth? A preliminary ex vivo study.

Hard dental tissues laser welding: a new help for fractured teeth? A preliminary ex vivo study. Laser Ther. 2018 Jun 30;27(2):105-110 Authors: Fornaini C, Merigo E, Poli F, Rocca JP, Selleri S, Lagori G, Cucinotta A Abstract Background and Aim: An important surgical goal is to provide a first intention wound healing without trauma produced by sutures and for this aim in the past several methods have been tested. The aim of this ex vivo preliminary study was to demonstrate the capacity of a 1070 nm pulsed fiber laser to treat the dental fractures by enamel and dentine melting with the apposition of hydroxyapatite nanoparticles as filler. Methods: Out of thirty freshly-extracted human third molars, decay-free, twenty-four cylinders of 5 mm thickness were obtained to perform the test.The device used was a 1070 nm Yb-doped pulsed fiber laser: this source has a maximum average output power of 20 W and a fixed pulse duration of 100 ns, while the repetition rate ranges from 20 kHz to 100 kHz. The samples were divided in three groups (a, b, c) of eight teeth and each specimen, with the two portions strictly placed side by side, was put inside the box and irradiated three times, the first and the second at 30 kW and the last at 10 kW peak power (average powers of 60 and 20 W).The repetition rate was maintained at 20 kHz for all the tests as well as the speed of the beam at 10 mm/sec.The samples of the group a were irradiated without apposition, in the group b ...

Authors: Sikora M, Včev A, Siber S, Vučićević Boras V, Rotim Ž, Matijević M Abstract The aim of this clinical study was to compare low-level laser therapy (LLLT) switched on and switched off in the treatment of burning mouth syndrome (BMS). BMS is a debilitating condition for patients and highly demanding for physicians, characterized by burning symptoms in the oral cavity. Despite extensive research, so far only cognitive behavioral therapy and clonazepam have been proven successful for its treatment in randomized controlled trials. Forty-four patients with BMS were randomly assigned to the study laser group...

AbstractLaser therapy could amplify the oral wound healing process by stimulating cell regeneration after injury, attenuating pain, and modulating the immune system. The purpose of this systematic review was to evaluate whether the application of laser therapy improved alveolar healing after tooth extractions. Eight electronic databases were screened: MedLine (PubMed), The Cochrane Library, Web of Science, Scopus, Lilacs, Ibecs, Scielo, and BBO. Three reviewers independently assessed the title and abstracts of potentially relevant studies. Only clinical trials and animal experiments that evaluated the wound healing effect ...

AbstractWhen conservative treatments fail, hip osteoarthritis (OA), a chronic degenerative disease characterized by cartilage wear, progressive joint deformity, and loss of function, can result in the need for a total hip arthroplasty (THA). Surgical procedures induced tissue trauma and incite an immune response. Photobiomodulation therapy (PBMt) using low-level laser therapy (LLLT) and/or light-emitting diode therapy (LEDT) has proven effective in tissue repair by modulating the inflammatory process and promoting pain relief. Therefore, the aim of this study was to analyze the immediate effect of PBMt on inflammation and ...

SummaryTechnical advances in recent years have led to new dermatologic laser systems, light sources, and treatment concepts. Commonly used wavelengths – generated today with LED‐based devices – allow for the combination of various tissue effects and are associated with improved outcomes. Laser hair removal has become more efficient with the use of diode lasers that emit multiple wavelengths simultaneously. In the near future, novel LED‐bas ed lasers will also be introduced for the treatment of vascular lesions. Here, too, the combination of different wavelengths promises to be beneficial. Picosecond lasers ...

Authors: Sun X, Liu X, Lu N, Yao S, Xu X, Niu L Abstract Short-term curative effect and safety of propranolol combined with laser in the treatment of infantile hemangiomas was studied, so as to provide reference for clinical treatment. A total of 100 cases of infantile hemangiomas admitted to the Affiliated Hospital of Jining Medical University from October 2014 to June 2016 were selected into this study. According to the random number table method, they were divided into the control group and the observation group, with 50 cases in each group. The infant patients in the control group were treated with laser alone,...
