Diode Lasers in Dentistry: One Day Course – Isle of Wight

Course Overview

Laser therapy can be a very useful tool to use as an adjunct to the management of pain, inflammation and infection. This type of treatment is referred to as photobiomodulation and given a little training it is a fairly short learning curve to add an indispensable daily aid to patient care in any clinical practice.

A diode laser is an effective analgesic, a powerful anti-inflammatory and it can be used to improve the quality of tissue repair and regeneration. Furthermore, it can be used to kill pathogens and, of course, it can also be used for surgery.
