Introduction to Laser Dentistry

Course description: Lasers have been a part of the dental armamentarium for over a quarter of a century. The important question facing the modern dentist is: "Are dental lasers worth the hype or are they just expensive tools that do what I already do with my handpiece and scalpel?" This course will show the advantages of lasers for both the practitioner and the patient. It will give the dentist the information needed to make a financially and clinically sound decision regarding implementing lasers into their practice. All major dental laser wavelengths will be presented and the advantages and disadvantages of each will be discussed. Clinical cases will be presented to show the role of lasers in every discipline of dentistry.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the basic science behind lasers and tissue interactions; distinguish between the many dental laser wavelengths and their advantages and limitations.

  • Recognize the laser's role in minimally invasive dentistry and identify laser procedures across all dental disciplines.
