Infant Laser Frenectomy. Myths and Physics of Surgical and Dental Lasers
A good surgical laser for cutting soft tissue must be able to efficiently vaporize soft tissue, while at the same time efficiently coagulating surgical margins. Not all laser wavelengths are suitable to comply with both requirements.
How deep does the laser cut? How deep do different laser wavelengths and pulse settings coagulate? Different settings deliver different laser-tissue effects, which must be efficiently managed and controlled by properly trained and knowledgeable surgeons. This course focuses on the practical aspects of soft tissue laser surgery, as well as on the fundamental processes involved in the laser-tissue interaction and helps attendees learn how deep the laser beam cuts and how deep the coagulation and hemostasis extend into the surgical margins. Our hands-on participation lab is designed to be second to none in training attendees on what surgical lasers can do safely and efficiently.
