For the last decade we have been applying the principles of Low level laser therapy and have broadened the concept for
practical use before and after treatment with surgical lasers. The purpose of this clinical presentation is to demonstrate
how this concept has improved treatment outcomes. Cases treated in our dental practice will be demonstrated with the
protocols used. A look at the science behind this concept will be examined in an effort to explain the results and to open
This is a clinical presentation demonstrating the efficacy of laser therapy in the treatment of patients
presenting with trauma to both the hard and soft tissue in the orofacial region. The use of laser therapy aids
the management of these cases where the patients often present with anxiety and a low pain threshold. The
outcomes in these cases indicate good patient acceptance of the treatment, enhanced repair and tissue
response suggesting that this form of treatment can be indicated for these patients. A combination of hard
and soft lasers are used for the comprehensive dental management and treatment of these cases. The lasers
used are a 810nm diode and an Er.CrYSGG.
This is a clinical presentation on the use of laser therapy in a private dental practice using a 810nm
diode. A wide range of conditions involving pain management, treatment and as an adjunct to
procedures to enhance patient comfort and experience.
This will include cases treated for TMD (Temporo mandibular dysfunction), apthous ulcers, angular chelitis, cold sores, gingival retraction, periodontal treatment and management of failing dental implants. The case presentation will include the protocols used and some long term reviews. The results have been very positive and will be shared to enable this form of treatment to be used more frequently and with confidence within dental practice.
