This one day course summarises the state of the art in several major areas of investigation for laser use in clinical practice, providing an evidence-based approach for contemporary laser dentistry. The following topics will be addressed:

  • Implant applications including enhanced integration, and biofilm removal from implant surfaces with complex surface textures.
  • Periodontal applications including detection of calculus and determination of endpoints for periodontal debridement, as well as root surface debridement.
  • Endodontic applications including detection of treatment endpoints and rapid debridement of the root canal system using laser agitated fluids.
  • Aesthetic applications of lasers including treatment of severe forms of developmental and acquired discolouration of teeth, and altering soft and hard tissue profiles to improve the aesthetics of teeth.
  • Orthodontic applications including bracket removal, and exposure of unerupted teeth.
  • Restorative applications including selective removal of infected dentine during cavity preparation.
  • Non-thermal applications of lasers including using lasers to achieve analgesia and block transmission of painful stimuli, and relax muscle spasms.
