REVIEW: The TwinLight™ Concept in Dentistry
Ilay Maden, Ozge Erbil Maden, Zafer Kazak
Lasers are used both as assistive as well as completely independent evidence-based tools in practically every field of dentistry, especially in terms of a multi-wave concept. Each type of laser has a different wavelength, and each wavelength has a unique interaction with a specific body tissue that is being treated , with the main effects varying from ablation to decontamination and photobiomodulation. From following any of the available dental laser curricula, it becomes clear that the optimal result of a particular dental laser therapy is achieved when two wavelengths are included in the treatment protocol. In the text that follows, the most widely used applications of the TwinLightTM treatment concept in dentistry are reviewed.
