Laser use in hygiene procedures

I will be recently graduating here in three weeks and wanted to know the real world applications of laser use in hygiene. I know we can do laser decontamination, curettage, whitening, and such. I want to know about LANAP and laser guided tissue regeneration. Is this something we can get training on and use in Oregon?

Not sure about your state, but I do know the LANAP and the regeneration is a surgical procedure. Hygienist can only provide non surgical periodontal therapies.

I’m in Oregon and use laser but strictly for decontamination and curettage. The rest is not allowed for hygienists here.
