Course Description

Confused about which dental laser may be right for your practice?  Sort the truth from the hype!  A laser’s wavelength is fundamental to tissue interaction, dictating its functionality and how it can be used in the oral cavity. This in turn determines the versatility of the device and its corresponding return on investment. This program will demonstrate the capabilities and advantages of implementing dental laser technology  with a specific focus on implant dentistry including the importance of wavelength selection, technical capabilities and limitations and techniques for using laser technology in general dentistry and specifically as an adjunct to implant surgery. 

What You Will Learn:

 

  • Fundamentals of Laser Tissue Interaction & the Importance of WAVELENGTH

  • How lasers can save time, reduce stress & make difficult implant cases easier

  • Surgical Implantology

  • Laser Periimplantitis and Perimucositis treatment

  • Additional procedures you can perform including general surgeries, laser periodontal surgery and therapy, & and cosmetic/aesthetic procedures

Plus....Practical Considerations for Implementation

  • Educating & Motivating Staff and Educating Your Patients

  • Marketing the VALUE & Benefits of Dental Laser Technology

  • Return On Investment & Total Cost of Ownership

And....The Latest Innovations in Laser Dentistry

  • Minimally Invasive Office Based Snoring Treatments

  • Facial Aesthetics; a Passive Income Opportunity

The hands-on segment of the program will give participants an opportunity to experience the functionality of lasers performing surgical procedures on in-vitro models. Live demonstration and video guiding the clinical simulation will incorporate the relevance of settings and technique for optimized clinical outcomes.  This interactive experience will also facilitate an open dialogue between participants and one on one with the instructor, comprising clinical & practical considerations for the successful implementation of dental laser technology. Attendees will have the opportunity to perform various clinical procedures, including;

  1. Different Techniques; for incision/excision, coagulation, disinfection & healing

  2. Techniques for implant laser procedures including immediate placement, uncovering, incisions and periiimplantitis treatment

  3. Operative Dentistry Including; tissue troughing, fibroma/biopsy, gingivectomy, frenectomy, vestibuloplasty, aphthous ulcers, periodontal therapy, surgical flap procedures, de-epithelialization & more!

  4. Laser safety considerations, settings, care, sterilization protocols & system maintenance

Course Objectives

AT the conclusion of the course the participant will;

  • Be familiar with the wavelengths used in dentistry today and their corresponding tissue interaction, capabilities and limitations, and   

  • Become familiar with the importance of wavelength selection and learn which dental laser technologies can be incorporated as adjunctive modalities to simplify implant surgical procedures and minimize post operative complications, and

  • Understand the specific technologies, techniques and benefits of  incorporating lasers in the treatment of periimplantitis and perimucositis, and

  • Understand which wavelengths of laser can be used adjunctively for periodontal therapy & surgery and minimally invasive snoring treatments, and

  • Understand the total cost of ownership of dental laser technology and return on investment considerations, and

  • Be able to incorporate this knowledge into a basis for determining which laser wavelength is most appropriate for their practice.
