Surgical lasers are rapidly emerging as significant tool in oral surgery as well as in the proprosthetic and pro-implant procedures. Surgical lasers as CO2 (10600nm), Er:YAG (2940nm),
Er,Cr:YSGG (2790nm), or diode lasers (810-1064nm) are a necessity in soft-tissue oral surgery
and hard-tissue oral surgery due to higher comfort for patients, less inflammatory reactions and
faster healing time. Also need for training, change of the usual therapeutic protocols, higher costs
for patients represent a challenge for dental practitioners that are focused to work with modern
technology in dental medicine. Researchers focus on the risk-benefit ratios and viability of
specific laser applications in dental medicine to help practitioners to gain in-depth knowledge
and trust in surgical lasers.
