Overview

18:00 - 19:00 GMT 

The dental laser was introduced in 1989 and has since been used for various soft and hard tissue surgical procedures. These ablative effects are based on well-understood high-power laser-biological tissue interactions termed photothermal (PTT) responses. Tremendous progress in biophotonics technologies has improved clinical outcomes, reduced costs, and broadened its applications. Concurrent progress in the biological basis of light-activated molecular pathways has also enabled the development of two discrete non-surgical approaches namely, photodynamic therapy (PDT) and Photobiomodulation (PBM) therapy.

Dr Praveen Arany, Associate Professor in Oral Biology at the University at Buffalo, New York, will attempt to outline the salient features and differences of PTT, PDT vs PBM therapy while emphasizing the recent advances in individual applications on the basis of mechanistic biological interactions. 

Aim of the webinar:

The objective of this seminar is to provide an overview of laser applications in clinical dentistry based on the light-biological interaction and anticipated therapeutic clinical outcomes.

Intended learning outcomes:

  • To outline the surgical and non-surgical clinical applications of lasers in dentistry
  • To emphasize the recent advances in our understanding of individual approach
  • To provide current recommendations for practical clinical use of lasers in clinical dentistry.
