Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Laser surgery is widely reported in the literature for the management of both non-invasive and invasive procedures. The possibility to adapt it for the resolution of different types of pathologies allows surgeons and clinicians to work in a clean surgery field, to reduce post-operative complications, and to have complete pain control.

Lasers in surgery are commonly employed in different applications, such as the surgical excision of soft tissue growths, surgical biopsy, gingivectomy, and the coagulation of vascular lesions.

Lasers such as diode, KTP, neodymium, and YAG have proven surgical benefits for oral surgery as they are associated with rarer complications, low-to-absent intra-operative bleeding, faster tissue healing, reduced post-operative pain and edema, and higher patient acceptance.

This Special Issue aims to collect a broad collection of high-quality studies in the field of lasers in surgery in order to demonstrate its advantages and possible innovative uses.

In this Special Issue, original research articles, case reports, and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following: the use of lasers in dentistry, oral surgery, and oral pathology.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.
