Perfect Timing- The Expanding Roll of Laser Assisted Hygiene

  • Discover laser applications that optimize clinical results.
  • Understand thermal disinfection and the expanding adjunct use of laser in treating gingivitis and periodontitis infection, decreasing systemic levels of inflammation, and the role it plays by improving a patient’s medical risk profile of susceptibility.
  • Learn the important role Laser Bacterial Reduction (LBR) provides to mitigate aerosol bio-contaminates in in the hygiene operatory.

The explosion of new scientific evidence regarding infection, inflammation, and the role it plays in a patient’s over-all health has created expanded opportunities for dentistry to rethink and improve the treatment we offer our patient’s. The diode laser is a tremendous asset for the Dental Hygienist to jump-start change in the eyes of the patients. Addressing disinfection with a laser enables hygienists to adopt a different approach regarding the patients’ newfound concerns about bacteria and viruses. It is the healing benefit of lasers through disinfection, reduction of inflammation, and the elimination of bleeding that speaks to the true value of laser implementation. Join in as we increase patient periodontal treatment acceptance by communicating the therapeutic value of laser assisted hygiene in support of their overall health.

The 3 Minute Connection: How Digital Scanning Improves Patient Health Outcomes

More than 90% of patients who can visualize their oral conditions are better prepared to make health-related decisions, explore treatment, and discuss payment options. Digital health scans help the average person grasp the importance of their dental health and help patients make decisions easier to understand. Visualizing oral health connects oral health to overall patient health, which improves health outcomes, case acceptance, patient retention, and referrals.

Learning Objectives

  • Improve patient health outcomes through visualization of their oral condition.
  • Create understanding with patients on how oral inflammation caused by pathogens induces a systemic increase in inflammatory markers.
  • Visually encourage case acceptance, and increase patient rapport and referrals
  • Create efficiencies with workflow utilizing digital scans
