Microsurgical Laser Therapy (MLT) in oral surgery | In the field of oral surgery, the term microsurgery applies to surgical procedures performed with the aid of magnification system like medical loupes or dental microscope, adapted instruments and sutures material. The dental microscope, as a highly sophisticated system of lenses, allows binocular viewing at magnification of approximately 4x to 39x (Extra300, *brand hidden*, Germany). In oral surgery, magnification recommended for surgeons range from 2.5x to 20x. In periodontal surgery, magnification of 4x to 5x for medical loupes and 10x to 20x for the dental microscope appears to be ideal. The dental microscope guarantees an ergonomic working posture, optimal, coaxial lighting of the operation region and quite freely selectable magnification levels. In many surgical specialties, such as neurosurgery, urology, plastic and eye surgery, treatment outcomes were significantly improved by applying minimally invasive technique. Studies covering wound healing of extra-oral operation sites have demonstrated that epithelization of a wound closed micro surgically was completed within 24 hours. Minimal tissue trauma caused by a micro-surgical incision and suture technique with primary wound closure results in reduced cell necrosis and, consequently, faster healing than with macro-surgical approach.
