Laser Assisted Non-Surgical Treatments for Craniofacial Pain and Sleep Disordered Breathing presented by Angela Tenholder, DMD & Kim Ledermann, DDS, MS
As science and technology evolve to improve access to innovative approaches to patient care, the AACP community strives to encourage our members to explore treatment options for their patients. This presentation will allow the viewer to become familiar with several non-surgical laser assisted techniques currently available to address supporting patients suffering from craniofacial pain and sleep disordered breathing.
1. Understand the mechanism of action of using light-based energy to create changes in both functional and structural aspects of the craniofacial region
2. Create an awareness for the multiple clinical applications of these technologies and techniques
3. Learn about the different wavelengths of non-ionizing energy delivered by several of the laser delivery systems that are being utilized by providers from around the world to create therapeutic tissue and cellular level changes to improve sleep quality and reduce the severity of craniofacial pain
4. Become familiar with some of the specific techniques being utilized by our community of providers to improve quality of life for their patients
