Laser Applications in Periodontics and Implantology

This presentation will allow clinicians to see what we can offer to patients when we utilize the latest technological advances that are available to clinicians.

The loss of periodontium to inflammatory periodontal disease is commonly noted in the form of infrabony and furcation defects. The optimal treatment for such defects is to regenerate the lost structures to the maximum degree rather than the resective treatment that is predictable and applicable for shallower defects.  For peri-implantitis, we also notice inflammation in supporting tissue structure as well as destruction of supporting bone.  The evolution of scientific knowledge regarding periodontal disease treatment in combination with the availability of new devices such as dental laser have encouraged clinicians to select therapeutics that are promoted to be predictable and efficacious. This presentation will allow clinicians to see what we can offer to patients when we utilize the latest technological advances that are available to clinicians.

Learning objectives:

  • To understand the effect of dental laser in treatment of periodontal disease and peri-implant disease
  • To understand the importance of consistent periodontal maintenance procedures
