Since 1990, the U.S. Food and Drug administration has approved the use of seven different wavelengths for dental use. These different wavelengths create a world of difference in how the lasers operate, and their usefulness in the oral cavity.
The lectures on both days will detail laser use in the following subject matters:
- Surgical and non-surgical periodontal therapy
- Fixed and removable prosthetics
- Oral medicine / oral surgery / oral pathology
- Pediatric and adolescent operative dentistry
- Endodontics Practice management / marketing
The workshops will give each participant a hands-on experience with the various wavelengths by performing surgical procedures on pig jaws. 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.
