Dental traumas are frequent in children. They can be complex events and sometimes real emergencies. Since
very little attention is devoted to this topic in the international literature and there are no well-coded laser guidelines for these
specific clinical events, our aim is to consider and present those situations in which laser-assisted therapy can offer new
treatment possibilities. The authors' aim is to stimulate more extensive scientific research in this area, which might not only
increase the use of these technologies, but also improve outcomes and reduce complications connected to dental trauma,
particularly in children. Furthermore, laser-assisted therapies drastically reduce the need for analgesics and anti-
inflammatory medications compared with conventional procedures.
Using laser equipment to obtain
anaesthesia is another challenge, while the use of low power setting for desensitising tissue and to obtain anaesthesia is
also an open field.
