Dental College, Bengaluru, Karnataka, India Abstract Introduction: The purpose of this study was to assess the clinical usefulness of carbon dioxide (CO 2) laser as a surgical modality in the excision of oral leukoplakia.

The laser diodes gave a significant contribution to improving the surgical treatment of tumors of the oral cavity, in fact during the surgery reduce bleeding and surgical time, and while in the process of healing by reduce swelling and post-operative pain and better results appearance without scarring Cited by: 8.

The carbon dioxide laser is the most frequently used in head and neck tumor removal. Transoral Laser Microsurgery Advantage Minimally invasive surgical techniques, such as transoral laser microsurgery or robotic surgery for head and neck cancer excision, allow tumor removal through the mouth, thus avoiding an open technique that is associated.

The use of the carbon dioxide laser for the removal of soft tissue Carbon dioxide laser surgery in the oral cavity book in the oral cavity is presented.

The laser was used to remove numerous benign lesions and growths, for incisional and excisional biopsies, and for the removal of microinvasive and macroinvasive by: The use of laser carbon dioxide (CO2) in the treatment of these lesions presents many advantages over conventional surgery including surgical technique without direct contact with tissue, without.

The purpose of this study is to clinically evaluate carbon dioxide (CO 2) laser treatment for leukoplakia of the tongue. Methods We examined 38 lesions in 35 patients of lingual leukoplakia who underwent CO 2 laser treatment with using Lugol staining at our department over a year period, i.e., from to Cited by: 3.

With the emergence of the Pulsed Dye Laser (PDL) and Potassium Titanyl Phosphate (KTP) laser, new applications of lasers in laryngeal surgery continue to evolve. These lasers have been shown not only to perform angiolysis but also to affect connective tissue and the extracellular matrix.

A retrospective medical record review was done of 51 consecutive patients with 56 biopsy-proven squamous cell carcinomas of the oral cavity and oropharynx treated for cure by one of the authors (H.H.D.) using the carbon dioxide laser via microdirect by: Complete excision of oral potentially malignant lesions (OPMLs) could result in improved and earlier detection of more severe grades of oral epithelial dysplasia and/or frank malignancy.

Transoral microsurgical carbon dioxide laser techniques allow for resection of Cited by: 1. Oral Surgeons, Dr. Frank Hoffman and Dr. John McLaughlin, practice at Carbon Oral Surgery Associates in Lehighton Pennsylvania, and offer the following oral surgery procedures and services to patients in Carbon County and the surrounding areas.

Carbon Dioxide Laser— nm Although the carbon dioxide laser traditionally has been used at nm wavelength and only for soft tissue surgery, another variant of this laser at nm ( μm) also is now being used in dentistry owing to its purported ability to work on both hard and soft tissue.

Lasers in oral and maxillofacial surgery 1. Lasers in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Colin Hopper UCLH Head and Neck Centre 2. Introduction LASER is an acronym of light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation.

Coherent, narrow low-divergence beam Monochromatic 3. General Surgery Soft tissue oral surgeries by CO 2 laser A CO2 laser significantly facilitates oral soft tissue surgery. Because it coagulates blood vessels, the laser creates a Learn to use CO 2 laser for repair of oral-facial clefts The CO2 laser allowed for operating in a highly vascular area with virtually no bleeding for this 6-week-old.

Rhys Evans PH, Frame JW, Brandrick J: A review of carbon dioxide laser surgery in the oral cavity and pharynx.

J Laryngol OtolSmith CJ: Oral cancer and precancer: background, epidemiology and aetiology. Br Dent JPreoperatively, all patients received thorough oral cavity examination at the outpatient department.

Written informed consent was signed by every patient before sur-gical intervention. Some of the patients received carbon dioxide (CO 2) laser surgery after an incisional biopsy for OL while some underwent laser excision directly.

TheAuthor: Shih‐Wei Yang, Shih‐Wei Yang, Yun‐Shien Lee, Yun‐Shien Lee, Liang‐Che Chang, Liang‐Che Chang, Cheng‐. Carbon dioxide laser have been used in a variety of soft tissue surgical procedures, including excision of malignant and leukoplakic lesions in the oral cavity.

Using high power laser has some advantages like less pain, swelling, prevention of metastasis, edema, less bleeding (dry surgery) and infection (4).

The use of the CO2 laser in the management of oral dysplastic lesions has become a more common practice.

Very few studies have evaluated recurrence, residual disease malignant transformation, and overall outcome in patients undergoing such a procedure.

In this prospective study, a total of oral dysplastic lesions from 77 consecutive patients were treated with the CO2 laser.

Carbon dioxide laser resurfacing is yet another tool in our treatment options, which include Retin-A® products, vitamin C lotion, alpha hydroxy acids, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, collagen or fat augmentation, and botulinum toxin for decreasing facial lines and scars.

The CO 2 laser has a decided advantage in removing tumors of the oral cavity. This advantage is related to its ability to perform accurate hemostatic surgery, while at the same time sterilizing the operative area.

During the past 4 years, patients have been treated with the CO 2 laser (Sharplan ) at our hospital. A variety of benign oral lesions, malignant tumors, vascular tumors.

98, Issue. 12, p. The Journal of Laryngology & Otology, Vol. 98, Issue. 12, p. Surgical removal of the papillae by using electrodesiccation, carbon dioxide laser, or even scissors is the treatment of last resort when less complicated therapies prove ineffective.

A punch. Coupling of the carbon dioxide laser to the operating microscope was the harbinger of a surgical technique — transoral laser microsurgery (TLM). 5 The first series of 57 oral cancer transoral laser resections was reported by Strong and Jako 4 followed by a further United States report on outcomes for transoral laser resection for OSCC by Panje et al.

Use of the carbon dioxide laser in the Management of premalignant lesions of the oral Mucosa* - Volume 98 Issue 12 - J. Frame, A. Das Gupta, G. Dalton, P. Rhys EvansCited by: Our experience demonstrate that the use of the Carbon dioxide Laser in treating oral soft-tissue pathology presents advantages over conventional techniques and local discomfort and pain are the most common complaints after Laser surgery.

The Carbon dioxide Laser does not offer any enhanced cure-rate for oral pathology, but rather it is a. The laser devices most commonly used in oral soft tissues surgery are the diode (– nm), the potassium titanyl phosphate (KTP, nm), the carbon dioxide laser (CO 2, nm), the neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG, nm), and the erbium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Er:YAG nm).

Laser excision of early selected cancers of the oral cavity and pharynx is a well accepted and reported treatment. Postoperative radiation therapy is employed in patients with unfavorable pathologic findings and in patients expected to have a high recurrence and metastatic rate.The carbon dioxide laser (CO 2 laser) was one of the earliest gas lasers to be developed.

It was invented by Kumar Patel of Bell Labs inand is still one of the most useful. Carbon dioxide lasers are the highest-power continuous wave lasers that are currently available. They are also quite efficient: the ratio of output power to pump power can be as large as 20%.

The carbon dioxide laser vaporisation was performed on the gingival mucosa with effective and quick results and without any complications or significant symptoms after the treatment.

We conclude that a carbon dioxide laser could be a useful, effective, and safe instrument to treat the aesthetic complications caused by oral smoker melanosis.
