Starting from manipulating of the laser device, adjusting the parameters and how to initiate the tip of diode lasers, participants will learn how to perform a desired treatment with minimum parameters without causing damage to the tissues.

In this course, we will highlight the physics of Lasers, adjustable laser parameters and laser safety. We will give you an idea about different wavelengths that used in dentistry.

The Course will be discussing different applications of diode lasers and Erbium Lasers in dentistry in soft and hard tissues as laser assisted teeth bleaching, teeth cavity, bone interaction , gingivectomy, gingival depigmentations and applications of diode lasers in decontamination of root canal.


Lasers are used in soft and hard tissues treatment and can be classified to various types of laser used in treatment like diode lasers with various wavelengths 635, 810, 940,980, Nd: YAG (1064nm), CO2 (10600, 9600, 9300 nm), Er: YAG (2940nm) and Er, Cr: YSGG (2780nm). One of the most popular lasers that used in dentistry are diode lasers with their different wavelengths, It is important to know the role of diode lasers in dentistry and their dental applications Dental Diode Lasers applications are a lot as gingivectomy, oral depigmentation, frenectomy, tongue tie, treatment of dentinal hypersensitivity and bleaching. On other wise diode lasers has a great effect in endodontics and periodontology, so I will assess and appraise the effect of diode lasers in dental applications. Finally the candidates will have a strong knowledge and background about dental dental lasers, and how to achieve the proper treatment with minimum parameters without causing damage to the tissues.

Learning Objectives:

  • Classifications of Dental Lasers
  • Advantages of uses of Laser in dentistry.
  • Laser Safety Precautions that you have to know during Laser applications.
  • Important of goggles and optical density.
  • Understanding how dental lasers interact with soft tissues.
  • To know different applications of lasers in oral surgery: gingivectomy, excisions of Fibroma, operclutomy, tongue tie, frenectomy ,treatment of hemangioma.
  • Efficiency of lasers in decontamination of Endodontics canals.
  • Different protocols that used in decontaminations.
  • Effect of lasers in disinfection of pockets
  • Laser assisted teeth bleaching.
  • Gingival Depigmentation.
  • Treatment of Dentinal Hypersensitivity
  • Laser assisted sulcus conditioning.
  • Co -relation between the lasers and hard tissues.
  • Laser assisted cavity preparation.
  • Remove of Laminate veneers
  • Applications of Photobiomodulation in Dentistry, Treatment of herpes simples, apthous ulcers and Accelerate wound healing.
