Abstract
This study is a preliminary evaluation of the effectivenes of laser-based surgery of maxillary and mandibular bone in dogs. Current methods of gingivial surgery in dogs require the use of general anaesthesia.1, 2 The proposed methods of laser surgery can be performed on conscious dogs, which substantially reduces the associated risks. Two choices of lasers, Nd:YAG and a 930 nm semiconductor lasers were evaluated. The former is already widely used in human laser surgery, while the latter provides an opportunity of decreasing the size of the optical setup. The results obtained from the simulations warrant further experiments with the evaluated wavelengths and animal tissue samples.
