OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study was to evaluate the microtensile bond strength (μTBS) of a composite resin to abraded or non-abraded bleached enamel after Er,Cr:YSGG laser irradiation and to observe the fracture patterns of the tested interfaces. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two hundred twenty-eight bovine incisors were sectioned, resulting in 228 enamel blocks (7 × 4 × 4 mm(3)) that were divided into 12 groups (n = 19) according to the factors "adhesion" after bleaching (immediate adhesion; after 14 days; and a control group with adhesion on unbleached teeth); enamel "abrasion" (with or without abrasion simulating cavity preparation); and "laser" (with or without Er,Cr:YSGG laser irradiation)...

OBJECTIVE: Reducing adverse effects in laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LCE) is important to avoid complications. After removal, the porta hepatis and gallbladder bed of liver were treated with pulse width modulated (PWM) red LED light with parameters λ = 625 ± 5 nm, full width at half maximum 17 nm, 76 Hz, duty cycle 23%, 15-30 mW/cm(2), and 0.9-1.8 J/cm(2). The changes of eight blood parameters were studied: red blood cell, hemoglobin, white blood cell, erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), bilirubin, aspartate transaminase (AST), alanine transaminase (ALT), and amylase...

OBJECTIVE: This in vitro study aimed to compare the bactericidal effect of two different laser delivery systems, a radial firing tip (RFT) and bare end fiber tip (BFT) used with the 940 nm diode laser on Enterococcus faecalis inoculated onto bovine radicular dentin. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 100 bovine dentin slices with a defined thickness of 500 and 1000 μm were prepared. They were assigned into four test groups together with untreated samples served as control for each slice thickness...

OBJECTIVE AND BACKGROUND: Tinnitus is an apparent sound, perceived in the ear with no stimulus. It has been described as a sound originating from the brain. It affects 17% of the general population. Etiological factors for tinnitus include temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ, TMD) and Costen's syndrome. The aim of treatment is to eliminate the tinnitus or at least decrease its apparent volume. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In total, 46 patients referred to our department with bilateral subjective tinnitus with TMDs were selected for this study...

OBJECTIVE AND BACKGROUND: The surgical removal of impacted third molars is one of the most common procedures performed by oral and maxillofacial surgeons. The purpose of this study is to determine whether either transcutaneous or intraoral low-level laser therapy (LLLT) reduces postoperative pain and assists in the healing of mandibular third molar extraction. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This randomized, placebo controlled, single-blind, split-mouth design study was conducted on 60 patients with full bony impacted similar position mandibular third molars bilaterally...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate in vivo, by histological and radiographic analysis, the response of apical tissues of rats' teeth with experimentally induced apical periodontitis, after one- and two-session endodontic treatment with and without photodynamic therapy (PDT). A microbiological analysis was also performed to verify bacterial reduction after each treatment. BACKGROUND DATA: Studies carried out in recent years highlighted the antibacterial potential of PDT when associated with conventional endodontic therapy in vitro...

OBJECTIVE: To assess if low-level laser therapy (LLLT) enhances the efficiency of orthodontic dental alignment. BACKGROUND: There is no evidence of the effect of LLLT on the orthodontic treatment time from randomized clinical trials. METHODS: Thirty-six subjects were included in this interventional pilot study and randomly assigned for treatment with fixed appliance and LLLT (test group) or with fixed appliance only (control group). A single monthly administration of LLLT was performed intraorally using a Diode laser (980 nm, 1 W, continuous wave, total energy density = 150 J/cm(2); Doctor Smile-Lambda Spa)...

OBJECTIVE: This study investigated whether patients with mild to moderately severe dementia or possible Alzheimer's disease (AD) with Mini-Mental State Exam (MMSE) Baseline scores of 10-24 would improve when treated with near-infrared photobiomodulation (PBM) therapy. BACKGROUND: Animal studies have presented the potential of PBM for AD. Dysregulation of the brain's default mode network (DMN) has been associated with AD, presenting the DMN as an identifiable target for PBM...

OBJECTIVE: Cerebral photobiomodulation (PBM) improves mood and cognition. Cerebral metabolic enhancement is a mechanism proposed to underlie PBM effects. No PBM studies to date have applied phosphorus magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((31)P MRS), which can be used to assess metabolic intermediates such as phosphocreatine (PCr) and adenosine triphosphate, the latter of which is elevated by PBM. Accordingly, we used 9.4 Tesla (31)P MRS to characterize effects of single and repeat cerebral PBM treatments on metabolism...

OBJECTIVE: Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is considered a promising adjunct to the currently available endodontic disinfection techniques leading to more effective reduction of intracanal bacteria. The present ex vivo study aimed to assess the antimicrobial effect of PDT using indocyanine green (ICG) as photosensitizer and a near-infrared (NIR) diode laser in root canals of human teeth infected with Enterococcus faecalis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ninety single-rooted teeth after chemomechanical preparation and sterilization were contaminated with an E...

OBJECTIVE: A study was established to objectively assess the effects of low-intensity electromagnetic and electric stimulation plus negative pressure on mature scars. BACKGROUND: Radiofrequency plus negative pressure therapy demonstrated a favorable reorganization and regeneration of the collagen and elastic fibers and was proposed for the treatment of cellulitis and skin stretch marks.

OBJECTIVE: Hydrocystomas (HCs) are rare, benign, skin adnexal cystic tumors that may be either eccrine or apocrine. BACKGROUND DATA: Apocrine-HCs are cystic lesions that arise from the apocrine secretory coil, whereas eccrine-HCs are retention cysts of the eccrine duct. The commonest site is around the eyes, on the ears, scalp, chest, shoulders, or feet; HCs of the oral cavity are very rare. METHODS: The case is reported of a 36 year-old man with a nodular lesion that was 7 × 5 mm in size on the labial commissure...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of laser and acid etching on the mineral content and photon interaction parameters of dental enamel in human teeth. BACKGROUND DATA: The composition of dental enamel may vary, especially at the surface, depending on the reactions that occur during dental treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Forty maxillary premolars were divided randomly into 2 groups of 20 teeth. In the first group, half of teeth crowns were etched by using 37% phosphoric acid; in the second group, half of teeth crowns were etched by using an erbium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Er:YAG) laser...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this literature review is to study the effect of photodynamic antimicrobial chemotherapy (PACT) on mono and multi-species cariogenic biofilms. METHODS: To this purpose, the database, PubMed, was searched using the descriptors, photodynamic therapy, antimicrobial photodynamic chemotherapy, and photoinactivation, associated with the mandatory presence of the word biofilm. A total of 98 references published from 2003 to 2016 were selected. Moreover, literature reviews (15), investigations that did not have biofilms related to dental caries (65), and those that did not have Streptococcus mutans count as an outcome (7) were excluded, yielding a final amount of 11 publications...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate Nd:YAG and CO2 laser effects in the prevention of demineralization in deeper layers of enamel via successive acid challenge cycles. BACKGROUND DATA: Lasers are promising in the prevention of enamel demineralization around the orthodontic brackets; however, there are very few studies that evaluate if the effects of treatment could be extended after successive acid challenge cycles due to permanent enamel structural alterations...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to determine the effects of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) on wound healing at free gingival graft (FGG) donor sites. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Forty patients requiring FGG were selected for this randomized, controlled, and double-blinded prospective clinical trial. The FGG donor sites were treated with LLLT and compared with an untreated control group. The Wound-Healing Index (WHI), tissue consistency, color match, and H2O2 bubbling test for the evaluation of complete wound epithelialization were recorded on the 3rd, 7th, 14th and 21st days...
