Hilton Wilmington/Christiana - Newark, DE

Ready to enter the laser world?

Or have an "unused" laser in the closet?

Lasers offer a very safe and effective alternative for a wide range of soft tissue dental procedures especially facilitating quality restorative dentistry. Advantages include: increased precision, controlled bleeding, accelerated healing, reduced post-operative issues, shorter procedure time, less pain, greater case acceptance and a more relaxed experience for the patient.

Roll up the sleeves (see live demonstrations) and explore diodes to all tissue lasers with procedures as frenectomy, biopsy, aphthous ulcers, gingivectomy for restorative access and troughing. Lasers create value added revenue for periodontics with non surgical periodontal care.

Learning Objectives

  • Review various laser wavelength therapies with attention to 5 of the most common easy effective procedures.
  • Understand indications for using laser in crown lengthening and pre-orthodontic procedures including esthetics and frenectomy
  • Differentiate laser technologies for periodontal indications (surgical and non-surgical) including laser bacterial reduction and curettage.
  • Develop techniques for incorporating laser into a dental practice considering patient acceptance, third party coding
