Comprehensive Review of Laser Soft Tissues Physics Infant Lip and Tongue Frenum Surgery

by Dr. Martin Kaplan, D.M.D.
  • Duration: 60 Mins
  • Credits: 1 CERP, 1 R-CERP
  • Learning Format: Webinar
  • Handout: No
  • Origin: GOLD Learning

There will be an explanation of the science of laser physics that is easily understandable as it applies to the selection of proper types of lasers. There currently are 3 main wavelengths that can be used for laser surgery. An explanation of how these wavelengths are applicable and how they determine outcomes for infant tissue interaction for laser surgery will be presented in a slide presentation and through videos. The physics of lasers will then be translated to clinical reality through the presentation of various clinical cases which will allow the group to better understand how they can interpret post-surgical results and how the various lasers do interact differently. The tissue healing process of the tissue with the laser wavelengths will also be reviewed and related to the active wound management methods that are suggested. There will be a review of assessment for how the provider of laser surgery selects the setting for his applications in surgery. Through the entire presentation, multiple slides will effectively clarify the mystery behind the true science of the laser surgeries which our patients are receiving.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Understand the difference between contact hot tip diode lasers and non-contact lasers
Objective 2: Understand the science of the healing processes that are different in each wavelength
Objective 3: Better interact with the providers of laser surgeries for their patients and how to anticipate the expected results
