Soft and hard tissue regeneration has always been an ideal, yet elusive goal when treating periodontal and periimplant disease. This course will provide the attendee with a 12- step program to achieve laser-assisted periodontal osseous and soft tissue regeneration. This technique is also applicable to peri-implantitis treatment. Though lasers have been used in dentistry for over 30 years, and many laser companies have made many claims about regeneration of tissue, this protocol will be proven to work via case reviews and supported by a critical review of the peer-reviewed literature.
