Utilizing the unique properties of Er:YAG and Nd:YAG lasers in daily practice can provide dentists a host of new treatment possibilities. Increase practice ROI with conservative and pain-free dentistry, superior endodontics, implantology, periodontics and less-invasive soft tissue surgery. Join Dr. Terry Alford to learn how laser dentistry can offer speed, precision and a wide-range of highly effective hard and soft-tissue treatments.

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

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 Er:YAG and Nd:YAG wavelengths.
