MDDS Presents: HANDS-ON Take Your Practice to the Next Level with the Benefits of Erbium Lasers-TO BE RESCHEDULED

November 23, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

HANDS-ON Take Your Practice to the Next Level with the Benefits of Erbium Lasers
Presented by Dr. Terry Alford

This course will be rescheduled in Spring 2020. Date coming soon. If you have questions, please call (303) 488-9700, ext. 3267.

Utilizing the unique properties of erbium lasers in daily practice provides dentists a host of new treatment possibilities. From conservative and pain-free dentistry, superior endodontics and implantology to periodontics and less-invasive soft tissue surgery, lasers offer speed and precision, while simultaneously allowing for a wide-range of highly effective hard and soft-tissue treatments.

Through detailed lecture and hands-on exercises, learn to perform:
• Frenectomies (with both Erbium Yag and Nd:Yag)
• Fibroma and hemangioma removal
• Herpetic lesion treatment
• Restorative dentistry procedures, including anesthesia-free cavity preparations
• Enhanced endodontic treatment with laser-activated irrigation
• Laser-assisted new attachment procedures with true regeneration including treatment of peri-implantitis involving no risk of heat or damage to the implant
• Improved tooth extraction, while preserving bone and offering superior socket debridement for immediate implant placement
• Airway enhancement procedures to increase oxygen intake, decrease the amplitude of snoring reduce the effects of sleep apnea

Discover how you can integrate these dual-wavelength laser treatments into your practice to improve the quality of care for your patients. Gain valuable information on laser-tissue interactions/benefits, proper case selection and effectively implementing the laser into your practice.

Note: The hands-on training will be conducted using the Fotona Lightwalker laser which offers both Erbium and Nd:Yag wavelengths.
