    Current use and future perspectives of diagnostic and therapeutic lasers in oral medicine
    Several diagnostic and therapeutic methods are based on the optical properties of lasers. In therapeutic applications, laser light is absorbed in a specific manner, whereas light is scattered, reflected, or transmitted from different structures. Improvements in laser technology allow new procedures and broaden the scope of applications for both diagnosis and therapy. The focus of laser application in Oral Medicine diagnosis should be early detection of oral squamous cell carcinoma. Novel modalities for the detection of oral malignancy are urgently needed, while others must be continuously impro-ved. Optical coherence tomography and laser-induced fluorescence spectroscopy are currently being studied. In addition ...
