Use of high-power lasers in pediatric dental surgeries: case reports.

Gen Dent 2022 May-Jun;70(3):56-59

The use of high-power diode laser technology follows the principles of minimally invasive dentistry. Laser technology is used frequently in pediatric dentistry, especially in surgical procedures, because this approach favors hemostasis, eliminates the use of sutures, improves healing, minimizes treatment time, reduces the sensation of pressure and vibration experienced by the patient, and creates more comfortable postoperative conditions. This article describes the use of high-power diode lasers to perform 3 minor oral surgical procedures--biopsy, lingual frenectomy, and operculectomy--in 2 children. Read More

Metastasis in the mandible involving gingiva: An intriguing case with a perplexing pathology.

J Oral Maxillofac Pathol 2021 Jan-Apr;25(1):203. Epub 2021 May 14.

Department of Oral Surgery, Government Dental College, Raipur, Chhattisgarh, India.

Oral metastasis, although rare, tends to involve jawbones, particularly the posterior region of the mandible, and involvement of oral soft tissues, even when less likely, is most often seen on the gingiva and tongue. Clinically, the soft-tissue masses tend to mimic pyogenic granuloma, peripheral giant cell granuloma or an epulis and thus are difficult to diagnose and identify. The jaw bone is preferred by prostate carcinoma as a metastatic target. Read More
