The general advantages of laser surgery, such as decreased bleeding, dry surgical field, reduced post-operative pain and less edema, have led to a continuous interest in laser applications for bone cutting as well as soft tissue procedures in a minimally invasive surgical approach.
When combined with the use of the latest generation of implant materials and the development of bone expansion techniques, this unique new treatment paradigm for implantology has led to a simplification of the full implant procedure and enhanced methodologies for the treatment of peri-implantitis.

Hard-tissue surgical procedures such as bone block harvesting, implant bed osteotomy, sinus lift with crestal or lateral approach, immediate post-extractional implants, or implant recovery, are far less invasive when using a modern technique.  In most cases, these complex surgical procedures can be completed with no flap or sutures and less or no use of drill and rotary instruments.

This course focuses on a new procedure which has been created without the use of any rotary instruments.  This procedure, which uses a dual wavelength approach focused on the Er,Cr:YSGG and diode wavelengths, can lead to immediate impressioning, better healing and quicker loading conditions. Comparisons with conventional surgical tools like piezo electric have shown a better and quicker post-operative result. In soft tissues, pathological incisions, excisions, implant discovery, and other surgical treatments can be conducted without anesthetic and no sutures required, with excellent good three-dimensional control. The procedure incorporates a second wavelength with deep absorption in the tissues will permit better issues in immediate post-extractive infected sites. This course will determine how the use of Er,Cr:YSGG laser and diode laser allows a minimally approach of all these procedures and a better and quicker post-operative success profile.

Learning objectives:

  • Gain a greater understanding of minimally invasive approaches to dental implants.
  • Compare and contrast available treatment options for treating and placing implants.
  • Learn the fundamentals of using lasers in oral implantology to achieve better and quicker post-operative success profiles.
  • Learn which laser wavelengths are safe to use around the ailing or failing implant, including biomaterials and surface coatings.
  • View case presentations of actual laser-treated implant procedures.
