One Day Diode Lasers
in Dentistry Course
One Day Conference
Laser therapy can be a very useful tool to use as an adjunct to the management of pain, inflammation and infection.
This type of treatment is referred to as photobiomodulation and given a little training it is a fairly short learning curve to add an indispensable daily aid to patient care in any clinical practice.
A diode laser is an effective analgesic, a powerful anti-inflammatory and it can be used to improve the quality of tissue repair and regeneration.
Furthermore, it can be used to kill pathogens and, of course, it can also be used for surgery.
Photobiomodulation therapy: accelerated healing, reduce pain and swelling, treat aphthous and herpetic ulceration, lichen planus, management of TMD, earlier and enhanced osseous-integration with implants, accelerated orthodontic tooth movement & the management of trauma including nerve damage.
Soft tissue surgery: gingivectomy, gingivoplasty, frenectomy and frenotomy, vestibuloplasty, operculectomy, troughing, depigmentation, arrest of haemorrhage
Periodontal management: bacterial reduction and periodontal therapy for early to moderate chronic adult periodontitis
Endodontics: bacterial reduction, activation of irrigants, decontamination of sinus tracts
Desensitization, prevention of caries & management protocols
……and more! Optimum settings for initiation, how to check and calibrate your laser etc.
