The use of hard tissue and soft tissue lasers in dental practice continues to evolve and improve. What began as a simple excisional device has transformed into a technology which can be used in every dental specialty. This informative and interactive experience will take you into the world of laser dentistry beyond gingivectomy and fibroma removal. Presentation topics will include techniques to enhance periodontal surgery, ailing and failing implants and predictable pain relief using various wavelengths.
