ENDODONTICS - FULL DAY TRACK

Er,Cr:YSGG Laser-Assisted Endodontics -Present and Future

Laser-assisted endodontics is now emerging as one of the most efficacious treatment modalities available in the management of the complexities of the apical third of root canal systems.  Successful integration of lasers into endodontic protocols requires not only a grasp of advanced endodontic principles but also an understanding of the advantages and limitations of lasers themselves.  This full-day workshop will review basic and advanced laser applications in endodontics and underscore their role in the management of more complex cases. (Sponsored by Biolase)

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will be able to discuss biofilms in apical periodontitis and the limitations of current treatment protocols in complex root canal systems.
  • Appreciate the benefits the laser provides for apical cleansing, specifically in the management of refractory disease.
  • Understand how lasers work and the role of lasers in Radial Apical Cleansing – a new protocol for the management of the apical third of the root.
  • Comprehend that laser-assisted endodontics is not just about disinfection, but also plays a critical role in the management of other endodontic complications.
