"A splendid light has dawned on me.."-Albert Einstein
The last 50 years have been explosive in terms of the new technologies in healthcare. Increased patient comfort and faster recovery has pushed the boundaries of health delivery systems. From diagnostics to rehabilitation, various sectors of health care come together to ensure comfort and complete recovery.
Dentistry has borne witness to some of the most beneficial changes in the last few decades- lasers being the most recent. With procedures like LANAP and Laser assisted surgeries and cavity cutting, it is evident that the future of dental care is Lasers.
Dr Kirpa Johar founded LDRR with the objectives of forming an independent, superior, scientifically based common platform to promote the exchange of ideas and information of dental laser concepts specific to practical needs and requirements of dentists world-wide.
LDRR is a non-profit co-operation. It has no commercial interest, nor is it bound to any industrial or commercial enterprise.
L.D.R.R across the batches have had dental surgeons from India and Internationally. We continue to work sincerely with a vision to make L.D.R.R based in Bangalore, India a global destination for dentists around the world seeking quality laser dental education.
Word From The Director
Laser Dentistry is the next phase of dental treatment that is fast gaining its much deserved popularity. Quick, versatile and accurate the lasers are fast replacing conventional forms of treatment. Lasers easily ablate and reshape oral soft tissues. In addition, lasers increase haemostasis through heat- induced coagulation and occlusion of arterioles, venules and capillaries. The patient is more comfortable and co-operative. The operative field is clean and isolated and asepsis is maintained. This in turn results in faster healing. It has been proven that the 1st week post operative healing is much faster in patients that have undergone laser treatment as opposed to those who received conventional treatment.
Periodontal procedures like gingivectomy, flap surgery and crown lengthening can be performed without incisions. The laser tip can be inserted into the depth of the pocket. The high-energy photons emitted by the laser generate heat that causes necrosis diseased tissue/ debris in addition to destroying the bacteria. Similar principle is at work when laser is used for root canal sterilisation after cleaning and shaping. Surgical extraction using laser requires minimal bone removal and results in lesser post-operative swelling. Other laser treatment options include bleaching, etching, laser-assisted tooth exposure (ortho, pedo), biopsy, cavity cutting and implants- in short laser can be an active part of your clinic. Also, laser equipment comes with different configurations to suit the dentist, which makes it easier to incorporate it into daily practice.
Laser can markedly improve conventional practice. Laser confers the affected tissue aseptic. Periodontic and Endodontic cases with questionable to poor prognosis show 80-90% resolution. Its non-invasive property asks for very little home care and diet alteration. The recovery is therefore rapid and there is minimal to no relapse. Bleaching results are long lasting- up to 3 years. Laser treatments usually cost up to 25% more than conventional treatment, with up to 80% higher success rates.
Every innovation in dental history has had an irrevocable impact on practice modality and treatment delivery. Laser is the next boom in the healthcare industry. Already an active part of general practice, it is the new standard in dentistry.

Laser Dentistry Research and Review was conceptualized with a view to spread awareness about and to explore the various avenues of laser assisted dentistry. Laser Dentistry has an immense potential for growth. Being in its nascent stages, access to information is limited and pertaining to a few journals. LDRR is suited to dental practitioners and students who wish to learn and share their experiences of laser assisted dental procedures. LDRR looks to amalgamate pools of dedicated professionals who wish to take their practice to the next level and redefine dentistry. Our goal is to strengthen relations with dental LASER societies, professional and scientific groups and laser manufacturers.
Laser dentistry Research and Review is a scientific community where members of the dental profession and those allied to the dental profession can interact, and actively engage together on various topics related to laser assisted dentistry.
