Laser: Unconventional Management for Soft & Hard Tissue
Hands-on course
08 May 2014, 09:00 - 18:00 Dubai, UAE Area of interest: General Dentistry

Course Description

Starting from focusing on what is light, we will see what is happening in laser-assisted applications in Endodontics and Periodontics. Moreover, we will analyze the reason why we need different wavelengths depending on the soft tissue and hard tissue treatments and besides why the use of laser in Implantology is becoming more and more common. We will also see how the laser works in the field of Biostimulation. In a few words, we will deal with new generation laser devices. Today we use the laser in dentistry also for 3D scanning for the CAD/CAM and milling systems, another one for troughing - this is the perfect resolution in new dentistry - not conventional.
