Low Level Laser Therapy and Antibacterial Photodynamic Therapy workshop
This two-hour in-depth workshop is an opportunity to discuss the use of lasers in dentistry including the photodynamic therapy, Helbo.
Professionals leading the course
This workshop will cover the following topics:
- Details on the use of lasers in dentistry
- Literature review
- Practical applications and benefits
There will be a HELBO® demonstration as part of the workshop – the perfect opportunity to see the therapy for yourself and ask questions.
The HELBO®-Therapy, is a clinically proven photodynamic procedure, which combats bacterial infections in the oral cavity. Many users have been employing this therapy for a number of years and value it highly.
The HELBO®-Therapy reduces infection-causing pathogenic bacteria by over 99 % and completely without side-effects. The procedure has been scientifically researched and documented in a variety of indications for more than 12 years.
How does Helbo work?
The microorganisms are first stained (HELBO®Blue Photosensitizer) and finally exposed under the HELBO® TheraLite Laser®, a non-thermally acting laser. The laser light forms highly reactive singlet oxygen which leads to lipid oxidation of the bacteria’s membrane, thus destroying pathogenic bacteria in the shortest possible time-frame. The procedure is both pain and side-effect free, and in many cases eliminates the need for invasive measures which patients are less willing to accept.
Over 70 publications document evidence in support of this therapy. Now, in addition to this, the DVK has issued a recommendation for the reimbursement of treatments for biofilm-associated infections of the oral cavity (periodontology, periimplantitis therapy), if certain conditions are fulfilled. The HELBO®Therapy procedure has fulfilled these criteria for a long time and has gained full approval in conjunction with the evidence supporting the effectiveness of this therapy.
