From surgery to physiotherapy, from trauma to aesthetic medicine, lasers are emerging in various medical processes. How is it used in the dental field?
From 7th to 9th November experts from around the world, doctors, surgeons, physiotherapists, physicists, engineers and biologists met in Florence for the 32nd edition of the World Congress of the International Academy of Laser Medicine and Surgery. It was an opportunity to take stock of current knowledge in the use of laser and biophotons in medicine, to compare and present the results of their research. The fields of application are many and have grown over time, involving dental care.
The fields of application of laser therapy range from surgery to the orthopaedic and physiotherapy field such as the treatment of trauma or sports injuries, up to the many uses in regenerative medicine and in the aesthetic one and in particular in the treatment of skin diseases. Also for dental surgery, many applications are bringing a revolution with respect to traditional techniques.
