Workshop Title:

The use of diode lasers in Clinical Dentistry

Date:

Thursday 8th November 2018

Price:

1000 EGP

About the Workshop:

To most dentists, diode laser means a dental laser. A laser that is used for burning soft tissue. In fact, diode lasers are lasers which are produced by semiconductor diodes. The range of laser wavelengths produced by diode lasers range from 445nm to 980nm. There is a wide spectrum of clinical applications with the use of diode light and diode laser. They can be integrated in daily clinical dentistry. The applications are limitless.

Workshop Objectives:

The participants should have an understanding of Laser wavelengths in diode lasers; their differences in tissue interaction and synergy in daily clinical applications.

Workshop Outline:

What is diode laser and laser safety?
Clinical application:
Caries diagnosis
