The clinical utility of lasers in implant dentistry
This talk is an exploration, overview and whistle stop tour of the utility of dental lasers (specifically a diode laser and an erbium laser) in implantology, including bed preparation, site preparation, second stage recovery, management of infection, soft tissue manipulation, and therapeutic applications. Comparisons are drawn with conventional and newer technologies.
