Th108 - Utilize Today’s Dental Lasers in Managing Periodontal/Soft Tissue Conditions in the Dental Practice: A Workshop
Time: 12 - 3 PM
Type: Participation    Handouts: Yes
Dentist Fee: $345.00  Other Fee: $345.00

Give the practice a boost by harnessing laser technology. The attendee

how to choose the right laser and apply simple techniques that result
in precision, controlled bleeding, accelerated healing, reduced postoperative
issues and shorter procedure times. Procedures include
non-surgical periodontics, frenectomy, gingivectomy, restorative
troughing, biopsy, fibroma removal and implant uncovering. Also,
TMD bio-stimulation will be presented considering coding and patient
acceptance. Attendees will experience direct hands-on activity with
various lasers on a variety of models including the hog jaw.

With periodontal diseases being considered as inflammatory over infection, discovery and treatment enters a new era. We now have systems to determine a patient’s risk at chairside and coordinate with the AAP Classification of Periodontal and Implant disease. . Be exposed to salivary diagnositcs to measure inflammatory messengers. Balance patient’s oral hygiene from microbial to anti-inflammatory with diet (probiotics/nutraceuticals), and stress as variables in controlling disease. Minimally invasive techniques will be reviewed including laser light energy and photobiomodulation.
