Dr. Edward Lynch (Dental) co-authored "Pain, Inflammation and Infection: A Daily Challenge in Every Clinical Practice; Role for Lasers?" that appears in the June issue of EC Dental Science. The study’s findings indicated that a diode laser is an effective analgesic, a powerful anti-inflammatory, that can be used to improve the quality of tissue repair and regeneration, kill pathogens, and can also be used during surgery. The collaborative work involved faculty members from UNLV School of Dental Medicine; the department of surgical sciences and integrated diagnostics at University of Genoa, Italy; and the department of bucco maxillo-facial prosthetic reconstruction at University of Sao Paulo, Brazil.
