Description:

Since 1990, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the use of 12 different wavelengths for use in dentistry. These various wavelengths create a world of difference in how lasers operate, and their usefulness in the oral cavity. During this two-day course, the use of lasers for specific procedures found in everyday general practice will be explored. Lectures on the first day will detail laser use in the following areas:

  • Non-Surgical, Surgical and Regenerative Periodontal Therapy
  • Surgical and Restorative Implantology
  • Fixed and Removable Prosthetics
  • Oral Medicine/Oral Surgery/Oral Pathology
  • Pediatric and Adolescent Operative Dentistry
  • Endodontics
  • Pedodontics/Orthodontics
  • Esthetic/Cosmetic Dentistry

On day two, participants will use lasers with various wavelengths to perform surgical procedures on in-vitro models (pig or lamb mandibles). Real time videos of routine laser procedures will be part of the in-depth discussion of specific instrument settings and techniques for laser surgical procedures. Attendees are expected to perform the following procedures on the models:

Gingivectomy
Biopsy
Frenectomy
Crown Lengthening
Initial Periodontal Pocket therapy
Aphthous Ulcer Treatment
Flap Procedure
Deepithelialization
And more…..

Special Note:

At the end of the second day, the Standard Proficiency Certification Exam, recognized by the Academy of Laser Dentistry (ALD), will be offered to course participants who successfully complete this course. The one-hour, proctored, paper exam has 75 multiple choice questions, and has a fee of $175 that must be paid directly to the ALD.
