Optimizing periodontal, restorative and implant therapy with a 1064 laser

Robert Horowitz DDS

Implant and periodontal therapy made more predictable with a small, portable laser.

Learning objectives:

  • Simplification of frenectomy to reduce muscle pull with a laser;
  • How to perform soft tissue crown lengthening with a laser;
  • Root planing enhanced with subgingival sterilization and deepithelialization using a 1064 laser;
  • Implant uncovering – no bleeding, no pain, no loss of keratinized tissue.

Robert Horowitz DDS

Dr. Robert A. Horowitz graduated from Columbia University School of Dental and Oral Surgery in 1982 having concentrated in periodontics and fixed prosthodontics.  After completion of a one-year general practice residency, Dr. Horowitz finished a 2 year specialty training program in periodontics at New York University and the Manhattan VA Hospital.  He began placing dental implants after taking implant surgery courses nationally and internationally in 1985.  In 1996, Dr. Horowitz completed a 2 year fellowship program in Implant Surgery at New York University concentrating in bone grafting procedures.  As a Clinical Assistant Professor in Periodontology and Implant Dentistry at New York University, he teaches and conducts research in bone grafting. Dr. Horowitz also teaches in the Department of Oral Surgery and conducts research in the Departments of Biomaterials and Biomimetics and Oral Diagnosis.   Dr. Horowitz has lectured and published nationally and internationally.  He has also performed research in bone grafting, extraction socket augmentation and the placement of dental implants in areas of limited available bone.  Current research includes prospective, multi-center, international studies on a number of bone replacement materials, periodontal regenerative materials, minimally invasive surgical techniques, guided surgery and implant surfaces/designs.

Dr. Horowitz is currently conducting research on bone graft materials and growth factors for use in periodontology, extraction socket therapy and implant dentistry.  Some of the growth factors increase the speed and predictability of new bone attaching to the root surface in a periodontal lesion.  Other growth factors improve the ingrowth of vital bone in the area of a recent tooth extraction or in the part of the jaw where a significant amount of bone has been lost due to periodontal disease, trauma or prior extractions.
Dr. Horowitz is available to lectures to national and international groups on many topics related to Increasing Case Acceptance Through Digital Technology and Predictable Bone Regeneration.  Some of these topics include predictable methods to maintain bone after teeth are extracted and new periodontal regenerative processes to maintain and improve the bone levels around teeth with bone loss.  Dr. Horowitz can demonstrate the uses of dental implants to replace one or more teeth with fixed crown – type restorations or the use of implants as anchors to help improve the stability of removable bridges or dentures.
