Diode laser types are currently the smallest and most inexpensive laser units, which are distinguished by a wide range of indications. Those will be offered with wavelength in the infrared light (805 – 1,064 nm). There are no significant differences in clinical application and outcomes. Indications are evaluated in minor surgery and particularly in endodontology and periodontology to decontaminate efficiently pockets, root canals and also contaminated dentin. More are the preparation of impressions by troughing the sulcus in crown and bridge work, uncover of implants with soft tissue management and the therapy of periimplantitis. In addition, laser assisted bleaching. There are newest diode lasers in the blue light spectrum. Clinical outcomes are presented, especially good outcomes in cutting capacity. Studies and research will be published short term.
The range of indications is nearly the same, which we find with diodes in infrared light. The advantage od the Nd:YAG (1,064 nm) is the lower thermal impact into the tissue. Ultra short pulses with high power peaks combined with a low frequency of 5 – 40 Hz reduce the general thermal loading of the tissue. The price of this laser is situated in the medium range.
These are the only wave lengths (2,940 and 2,780 nm), which enable the dentist to condition or prepare and ablate tooth structures (enamel and dentin) and bone. In cavity preparation, a very well-conditioned dentinal surface impresses, which supports adhesive procedures. And the laser assisted preparation is characterized as a low pain treatment. In addition this laser offers a wide indication range in soft tissue application. In these processes the lower coagulation capacity must be considered. The Erbium types are situated in the higher price segment.
The CO2-laser (10.600 nm) is a laser from the early beginning. Mainly, this type is drafted for soft tissue surgery. It stands out due to extraordinary cut capacity, caused by its absorption qualities in soft tissue. And the outcomes in coagulation are absolutely supportive. Many studies are available about the suitability to uncover implants, soft tissue management and treatment of Periimplantitis. The application in super pulsed mode guarantees a gentle treatment. Primary this laser is a unit for oral, maxillo-facial surgeons or implantologists. CO2-laser is situated in the medium price segment.
