ALD PBM Symposium


Photobiomodulation: The New Secret Weapon for Patient Care

View Schedule here.

Laser energy has many applications for oral health management including local and systemic influences. These range from post-operative wound healing decreasing reliance on opioid medications to anti-inflammatory effects both centered around photobiomodulation (PBM). Photodynamic therapy (PDT) can have dramatic effects on managing microbial disease of the oral cavity without initiating antibiotic resistance. Presentations include the following topics:
  • Pain control after surgery.
  • Improved healing of implants and grafts.
  • Treating dry socket.
  • Eliminating the use of opioids.
  • Nerve regeneration.
  • Treating facial pain and TMD pain.
  • Treating soft tissue lesions such as cold sores and aphthous ulcers.
  • Preventing and/or treating mucositis.
  • Laser devices; freestanding and using surgical diode laser devices for PBM will also be discussed.
Educational Objectives:
  • Understand the science and dosage parameters of PBM
  • Recognize what dental procedures can be successfully carried out with PBM
  • Learn how to manage pain for your patients with PBM
  • Learn what devices can be used for PBM in a dental practice
