The Simplified Use of Diode Lasers in Restorative Dentistry

Diode lasers are the perfect adjunct to any restorative dental practice. Proper use of a diode laser requires understanding of the science and some basic tips to minimize the learning curve. Join us as we make you a laser expert in a day so that you can immediately incorporate diodes into your practice.

During this portion of the program practitioners will understand:

  • The basics of laser science as it relates to clinical practice
  • Direct restorative dentistry with adjunctive use of a diode laser
  • Indirect restorative dentistry with adjunctive use of a diode laser
  • The proper use of the diode laser in dental hygiene!
  • Photobiomodulation: Why would I want to do this in my practice?

Direct Esthetic Dentistry: New Materials and Techniques for Imperceptible Anterior Restorations

For many years, esthetics in operative dentistry has been taught as something more artistic than scientific. Often, many dentists are left feeling that there’s a lack of information that might help planning and executing cases with reliability, predictability and, why not, serenity. What this course proposes is to change the concept that esthetics is purely artistic and empiric.

Nowadays it is possible to work with an emphasis in esthetic procedures in an ethical way, keeping in mind the patient’s whole oral health, and having predictable results sustained by scientific evidence, always under the precepts of minimally invasive dentistry. It is important to understand the patient’s complaints, and also know the techniques and materials that we currently have available.

Regarding any esthetic rehabilitation, we must always focus on the minimally invasive dentistry. For the dentist that aspires to advanced esthetic procedures with dental composites, it is paramount to know properties of both composite and tooth; more specifically, their mechanical and optical properties. This knowledge affects not only the immediate behavior of the material, but also the reliability of a long-lasting restoration. Furthermore, only by knowing the composite will we be able identify which materials would be able to reproduce even the smallest anatomical and optical details of the natural tooth.

Learning Objectives:

  • Master a new perspective for the placement of anterior composites
  • Discuss a different clinical approach to make color matching easy
  • Review changes in adhesion and light curing—new keys for shortand long-term success
  • Reduce clinical stress by improving case predictability
  • Learn how to simplify composite layering techniques
  • The benefits of lasers in esthetic dentistry
