The first part will describe the history and development of lasers in dentistry, the characteristics and structure of lasers as well as their principles of operation. A description of the different types of lasers used today in dentistry will be presented in the first part. The second part will describe the interaction of lasers with biological tissues and their effect on the soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity as well as on the dental pulp. Laser safety in the dental practice will also be discussed. The third part will focus on clinical applications of Lasers in Dentistry pits and fissures sealing, dentin desensitization, cavity preparations, composite curing, surgical procedures and tooth whitening.
