Lasers - A Current Perspective

Lasers are the only technology with widespread application in routine and advanced dental procedures since the development of the air turbine, however the dental profession is often sceptical if this technology is safe and effective. This presentation shows how Lasers have been a part of our daily practice for over 20 years, and can no longer be ignored as it is one of the most advanced and patient friendly tool a dentist is likely to own. This interactive presentation will encourage thought provoking elements, clinical case studies and will highlight the benefit of using a laser for both the practitioner and the patient. Along with scientific background to optimise patient care, safety and most importantly taking your clinical skills to the next level!

Learning objectives:

  • What laser wavelengths mean
  • How to choose a laser
  • What can it do for my practice
  • Laser education and regulations
  • Improve treatment outcomes with reduced complications

Pain Management and Mechanism for Pain Relief in Everyday Dental and Medical Practices


Oral pathology and conditions of the oro facial complex affects most of the population at some time during their lifetime associated with pain.

Inhibitory effects of lasers on nerves, including nociceptors, has been clearly delineated in experimental models and provides a mechanism for clinically observed analgesia. This includes nociceptive pain of surgery and trauma as well as in neuropathic pain conditions such as trigeminal and post-herpetic neuralgia.

The anti-inflammatory effects of laser irradiation are now well documented and suppression of neurogenic inflammation is a component of this.

Chronic pain states with tonic nociceptive input and central sensitization, LLLT suppresses input in peripheral nerve terminals (skin and mucus membranes), resulting in down regulation of the nociceptive pathways of the pain “matrix”, i.e. spinal cord and cortex.
