CE 1: Diode Laser Soft-Tissue Surgery: Advancements Aimed at Consistent Cutting, Implant Clinical Oucomes Georgios E. Romanos, DDS, PhD, Prof Dr med dent
This article provides an update on new developments in diode laser soft-tissue surgery based on current understanding of laser-tissue interactions. As technology continues to impact dentistry, clinicians should keep in mind that the use of technological tools does more than simply benefit them in performing complicated tasks: above all, the benefit is for the patient. In addition to making dentistry more efficient, advances in technology are helping provide patients with greater comfort and more natural-looking, highly durable outcomes.

CE 2: Postextraction Maintenance of the Alveolar Ridge: Rationale and Review Garima Agarwal, MDS; Raison Thomas, MDS; Dhoom Mehta, MDS
This article describes current procedures for postextraction maintenance of the alveolar ridge. The concept of socket preservation can be contemplated for enhancing the predictability and success of prostheses. In the future, it may be possible to place tooth buds in sockets to regrow teeth or place a cellular scaffold in the socket to maintain the bone.
