Program Track: Treatment of Periodontal Diseases and Peri-Implant Diseases

Dental lasers have been incorporated into both non-surgical and surgical periodontal treatment modalities, and it is important to understand that lasers with varying wavelengths exert different levels of tissue penetration determined by degree of absorption. Although the latest AAP consensus paper reported a modest additional benefit in probing depth reduction and clinical attachment level gain compared to conventional non-surgical treatments, a significant amount of conflicting evidence exists regarding the efficacy of laser-assisted periodontal therapy.

Educational Objectives:

  • Gain knowledge on different types of dental lasers and their specific indications and contraindications.
  • Review clinical applications of dental lasers in periodontics and dental implantology.
  • Discover novel and innovative clinical protocols with the dental laser.
