“Treating Snoring/SleepDisordered Breathing and  Intraoral Facial Aesthetics with Lasers”

Part 2

This course is for all dental practitioners and team members to learn about the applications of lasers for the following applications:

  • Sleep disordered breathing (including screening) whereby the soft palate and uvula are bathed with laser energy which tightens the collagen and opens up the airway without cutting or surgery.
  • Screening for TOT’s (tethered oral tissues) and the relationship to sleep disorders
  • Laser therapies for TOT’s and Sleep Disordered Breathing (snoring, sleep apnea and more)
  • Non-surgical laser applications in improving sports performance and nasal breathing
  • Applications in facial Aesthetics within the scope of dental practice
  • Facial Rejuvenation – “Turn Back the Clock of Facial Aging”
  • Wrinkle reduction and prevention – bathing the inside of the cheek in laser energy tightening the collagen so the outside of the cheek looks smooth
  • Laser lip enhancement – the inside of the lip is bathed in laser energy creating new collagen and making lips look fuller.

Please note that the SBD, wrinkle reduction and lip enhancement will require a touch up every 12-18 months and all three procedures are reversible and within a dentist’s license since they are treating the intra oral cavity. 

Clinical cases and treatment planning will be discussed.
