Course Info


Diode lasers are a great adjunct to any restorative practice. Whether it’s utilized in cases where we have deep subgingival decay, used in crown and bridge, or as an adjunct in aesthetic dentistry, diodes have a place in the operatory. Join us as we gain an understanding of diode lasers and the science behind them and demonstrate in video format how the diode is an essential tool for every restorative dentist.

We will cover the following:

  • The science behind diode lasers
  • The deep subgingival box: sectional matrices and diodes the essential tools
  • Diodes in crown and bridge: I can’t live without them!
  • Diodes for routine surgical procedures: gingivectomies, frenectomies and more!
