ABSTRACT

Dental Laser became an important tool in the Dental clinic with multipurpose and wide range of applications.

With the challenges that the dentists are facing in their daily practice specially in Perio & Oral surgery asking for a more simple, better outcome, minimal invasive and less traumatic techniques and tools which the laser may give an effective assisting tool to the dentist for such procedures.

Perio treatments and gingival or oral surgeries using these lasers have been scientifically evaluated in more depth and last but not least many FDA clearances have been achieved for different dental procedures. Thus, there is a need to re-think decision making for either non-, micro- or minimum-invasive treatment options at various applications to reduce the side effects of the conventional techniques.

Laser Assisted Perio and Oral Surgery course is designed to teach periodontal laser applications in an intensive hands on workshop environment( bovine head) beyond the basics of dental lasers.

Course content will include various laser therapies with attention to -both the perio-restorative, perio-pathology and various surgical uses. Anecdotal and scientific resources from crown lengthening procedures to the treatment of periodontitis will be investigated. Cases demonstrating success will be explored along with clear contraindications. The applications of the Er,Cr,YSGG and the diode lasers in the Perio and Oral Surgery cases with the techniques and parameters will be explained in details using both HD photography and videos.
