Laser – Tissue interaction and its application in clinical dentistry

Authors:
Parker S.

Int J. Laser Dent. 2011;1(1):1-8.

International Journal Laser Dentistry

The word “Laser” is a generic for the many examples of instruments that deliver specific electromagnetic (photonic) energy. The clinician may choose one of many laser wavelengths to achieve adjunctive therapy; the success of a given laser treatment will depend upon the predictability of the interaction of photonic energy with target tissue. This paper serves to present theoretical and practical aspects of laser-tissue interaction, drawing upon evidence-based published investigation.

Introduction, history of lasers and light production

Authors:
Parker S.

Br. Dental Journal. 2007;202:(1)21-31.

British Dental Journal

The word laser conjures in the mind’s eye many aspects of what might be described as ‘modern’ life. The words ‘powerful’,‘precise’ and ‘innovative’ complement our conception of the world in terms of technology, whereas patients often associatethe words ‘magical’ and ‘lightening quick’ with the use of lasers in medical practice. The purpose of this series of articles isto explore the history and development of lasers, the integration of lasers into clinical dentistry and the safeguards as totheir regulated use.
