HELBO Laser – Essential in Oral Surgery & Periimplantitis Management
The increase in multi-drug resistant bacteria calls for a novel approach in tackling infections. The use of systemic antibiotics for localised oral infections is now frowned upon and no longer encouraged.

Diode low-level-laser therapies such as HELBO antimicrobial therapy (aPDT) in adjunctive interventions as support to mechanical curettage are becoming widely accepted in periodontic and endodontic procedures. In oral surgery and implantology, they are important in the prevention of complications, assurance of safe osseointegration, soft tissue preservation and the management of microbial-related peri-implantitis. We will briefly touch on these use-cases in my presentation.
