DESCRIPTION: In the
field of dentistry, research has been directed toward the potential
of Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT/Cold Laser/Photobiomodulation) to
reduce the healing time of oral surgery, improve anesthesia and
analgesia, treat TMD conditions, improve implant osseointegration
WHY SHOULD YOU KNOW ABOUT
PHOTOBIOMODULATION? Now more than ever, dental practices
rely on the latest advancements in technology to improve their
patient outcomes. These same technologies should be a win-win for
the dental practice and the patient. During these trying times
Photobiomodulation is the ticket to improve ROI through overall
patient satisfaction. It is a practice builder.
Photobiomodulation (also known as Low Level Laser Therapy) is a
technology that has existed for 50 years supported by science and
research. You will wonder how you have practiced without
implementing Photobiomodulation in your dental practice to
Of over 400 dental clinicians we
surveyed, nearly 87% had zero to little knowledge of low level
laser therapy/photobiomodulation (PBMT) or
technology, despite numerous studies and
citations providing clinical evidence that PBMT can reduce
inflammation, quicken healing times, reduce the need for local
anesthetic, analgesics, and opioids, provide relief and hasten the
healing of herpetic lesions, improve TMD symptoms and neuralgias,
improve osseointegration in implant cases, move teeth faster with
less discomfort, reduce the incidence of dry socket, and many more
evidence based applications.
WHO IS GMA LASER EDUCATION? This
1 hour presentation is an ongoing panel discussion with
Photobiomodulation Experts and Educators, Dr. Gerry Ross, Dr. Mel
Burchman, and Dr. Arun Darbar, Co-Founders, GMA Laser Education.
They will each talk about their own experience with PBMT and how it
changed the way they practice dentistry forever. Learn how
LLLT/PBMT can benefit your own dental practice. Their discussion
will be followed by Q & A "Ask The Experts". This is an
interactive discussion to provide you with an introduction to
Photobiomodulation's benefits. GMA Laser Education co-founders are
current and prior Presidents of the Academy of Laser Dentistry and
North America Association of Photobiomodulation. They are
Academy of Laser Dentistry Recognized Trainers.
