Webinar Description:

Various treatment alternatives for peri-implantitis exist, but there is no consensus on which provides the optimum outcome, and significant positive treatment results to a high level of predictability have never been published with a large sample size. Dr. Schwarz presents the findings of his retrospective study examining the clinical outcomes of 222 patients (437 implants) with peri-implantitis treated with the LAPIP protocol in his practice, as published in the May/June 2020 issue of General Dentistry. He also explores his applications of this laser in his oral surgery practice including laser decontamination, biostimulation, TMJ applications, and more. Laser codes that he has used and production numbers will be shared as well.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review retrospective study results of laser periodontitis treatment using the Millennium Nd-YAG Laser and LAPIP protocol.
  • Characterize the radiographic and clinical findings of representative peri-implantitis cases treated with the LAPIP protocol.
  • Understand clinical applications of the Millennium Nd:YAG laser.
