Versatility of a Superpulsed Diode Laser in Oral Surgery: A Clinical Report

Maiorana, Carlo / Salina, Sergio

Purpose: A superpulsed diode laser (Claros; Elexxion) was used for different surgical procedures using various operative parameters.The possibility of reaching the target tissue with lower power than and equivalent efficacy of the conventional diode laser was clinically tested. Materials and Methods: After setting local anaesthesia (Ecocain 1:100000), the superpulsed diode laser was used on patients to uncover impacted teeth, remove epulis, and treat intraoral hemangioma. No antibiotics were administrated and chlorhexidine rinses were prescribed for one week, twice a day, before surgery. Results: In all cases, slight carbonization was observed. The postoperative healing ensued without inflamation or complications. Conclusion: The use of a superpulsed diode laser allows the surgeon to operate using high energy and very short pulse duration (milliseconds). This allows the best control of incision depth and reduces the thermal damage to the target tissue.
