The CO2 Laser and it's Application in Modern Clinical Oral Surgery

Description:
Co2 Laser is a simple and versatile tool which can replace the knife for majority of minor oral surgical procedures which can be done on the chair side under local anaesthesia. The advantage of Co2 laser is a fact that it creates a bloodless, painless and heals with minimal scarring. Most common applications which include frenctomies, exposure of impacted teeth, pre-orthodontic exposure of canines, Excision of small fibromas, papillomas, warts and mucoceoles. Small hemangiomas and lymphangiomas can also be excised with minimal blood loss. This presentation gives the viewer an overview of the co2 laser and its application in various clinical scenarios. The safety aspect of using laser for the patient, operator and dental surgery assistants is also demonstrated.

Thanks Professor for this great presentation

karim chaddad - (11/10/2014 6:27 PM)

thank you for this great presentation; Dr. Girish, have you had the chance to use lasers to treat peri implantitis; do you recommend any specific laser ? i believe it should be in the SELT category; i know they are a lot of controversies and would like to get your opinion on the subject ; thank you again for this review and all the information needed to implement lasers in our daily practice

What is the Role of Blood and its Proteins in Regenerative Therapy? Bioengineering and Technological Applications
In the blood stream, we have plasmatic proteins and proteins that are released upon platelet activation. These proteins, at certain concentration, play an important function in orchestrating complex events that occur to achieve tissue regeneration like chemiotaxis, angiogenesis, cellular proliferation and differentiation. The optimized use of these bioactive clues would offer several advantages and applications in surgery.

Surgical & Prosthodontic Team Approach: Bone Reconstruction with Fibula Graft, Case Report
Patients with benign tumors can and should be reconstructed immediately after removal of the tumor, if possible. In this brief presentation, Dr. Doñas shows a case where the surgical and prosthodontic team work together from the start and how it can impact the overall outcome for the patient and how certain prosthetic treatment modalities & issues can be including as a part of the surgical plan.

Is There One or More Reasons to Optimize the PRF & PRP Protocols? Future Trends in Dentistry, Orthopedics and Facial Aesthetics
The “Advanced” PRF (A-PRF) and “Injectable” PRF (I-PRF) protocols were designed with this new concept. Indications are numerous in all medical fields where we need regeneration: bone, cartilage, skin etc... However, the use of growth factors is not a guarantee of long term stability, as they are active only at the beginning of the process. Numerous rules of tissue engineering have to be applied to maintain the regenerated bone through an adequate blood supply: this lecture is an enlightenment on the biological and mechanical conditions for long term stability of the bone: “grafted bone” or “bone around implants”.

The Interdisciplinary Software Platform. The Key For Modern Digital Dentistry
The starting point of a facially driven interdisciplinary dental treatment plan is "The Smile Frame". A few crucial photos and steps will come together to create the ultimate template you need to communicate to your dental team, colleagues, and the patient to ultimately increase case acceptance and create the most aesthetic and functional method of rehabilitation to your patient. We will discuss how this paradigm shift of regular analog dentistry has shifted to this modern digital world and the benefits it provides. The protocol proposed will improve the diagnosis, communication and predictability of esthetic rehabilitation, from simple implant or restorative cases to complex cases, combining perio, ortho, and othognathic surgery. Emphasis will be given to the utilization of digital tools to enhance and facilitate the Dentist/Technician interaction and communication with the patient.

Next Generation Biomaterials for Bone and Periodontal Regeneration - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Next Generation Biomaterials for Bone and Periodontal Regeneration - Part 1 of 2
New and innovative biomaterials are being discovered or created in laboratories at an unprecedented rate, but many entirely unknown to practicing clinicians. This course addresses this gap in knowledge by summarizing some of the groundbreaking research performed to date on this topic and provides case examples of these biomaterials at work. The course begins with a review of the biologic background and applications of bone grafting materials utilized in dentistry. Thereafter, new and exciting updates on Platelet Rich Fibrin, Emdogain/Osteogain, Tetranite and Vitamin D deficiency are discussed with respect to their ability to promote either bone or periodontal regeneration.

Chu's Aesthetic Guages: Crown Lengthening
The Crown Lengthening Gauge has the Biologic Periogauge (BLPG) tip on one end and the Papilla tip on the opposite end. The BLPG tip is used to achieve the propermid-facial clinical crown and biologic crown (osseous crest to incisal edge position) length during surgical crown lengthening procedures. The Papilla tip follows the use of the BLPG tip to establish the correct aesthetic position of the interdental papilla fromthe incisal edge before the flap is closed and sutured.

Elements and Utilization of Suturing Needles

Elements and Utilization of Suturing Needles
The primary components of every suturing needle include the attachment end, body, and point. Traditional complications caused by threading have been eliminated by the advent of needles that are permanently attached to the suturing material. The suturing procedure is further simplified by the attached and press-fitted end of the needle (swaged) that enables the clinician to draw it through the tissue with less trauma.
