Title: The diode laser in modern treatment concepts- some case reports


According to current evidence, several dental lasers can be used to improve our treatment results.
In dental practice a decrease in caries prevalence is obvious whereas patients’ motivation of optimizing their aesthetic oral condition increases obviously. Dependent on the loss of tooth substance, different treatment concepts can be applied to improve the oral situation of our patients. With regard to a high-end aesthetic result, the author presents his definition of a modern dentistry using the diode laser. Some case reports illustrate the exemplary use of the diode. The author proposes that the diode is not only for the oral surgery in general but also a good tool to preserve healthy soft tissue architecture. Several advantages are illustrated.
