Abstract
In our research, the Er:YAG laser has demonstrated a wide range of clinical capabilities based on its various mechanisms of cutting. In this article, I will discuss three of those mechanisms, presenting supportive research studies to define these laser-tissue interactions. To illustrate the clinical significance of this basic research, I will present specific clinical results in dentistry, both hard and soft tissue, and ophthalmology.
