LASER stands for “light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation.” It is basically an instrument that emits the appearance of a narrow and concentrated radiation beam. In laser dentistry, high-quality beams can provide higher accuracy and more safety than anaesthetics and drilling. The beams impact when they hit tissues, helping to eliminate or make the tissues more shaped.

Why is laser dentistry prefered?

Lasers are skilled at making incisions and eliminating tissue. The primary goal of lasers is to enhance dentists’ visibility, give greater access to the area, and eliminate drilling, which results in bleeding.

The cold lasers can relieve discomfort, reduce inflammation, and speed wound healing. Ablative-surgical lasers can treat oral mucosal diseases.

Laser dentistry is used in the following Treatments.

Tooth Decay

The laser can stop tooth decay and help restore the enamel with a dental filling.

Gum Disease

To help shape gums and eliminate the growth of bacteria through the root canal procedure. They’re a well-known method to treat periodontal diseases and oral infections.

Remove Lesions

Lasers can provide relief from mouth ulcers by extracting the amount of dead tissue.

Teeth Whitening

Professionally whitening your teeth Laser beams generate an appropriate amount of heat that speeds up and boosts the effectiveness of bleaching substances.

Detecting Cavities

To identify and eliminate tooth decay early by spotting indications of tooth decay.

Treating Tooth Sensitivity

One of the major benefits of this therapy is its application to hypersensitivity. Lasers can encase the troublesome tubules, which can eliminate the sensitivity.

Pre-Surgical Preparation

Thanks to this technology, it is no longer necessary for anaesthesia or drilling. Additionally, they kill the cavity infection while placing caps or fillings.

Correcting A Gummy Smile

To take out excess tissue with precision to lengthen crowns or let loose, tight muscles. They can improve visibility and accessibility while shaping gums.

Crown Lengthening

This technology allows for lengthening crowns to improve aesthetics or chewing purposes for teeth with short and long lengths.

Repair Soft Tissues

Lasers can be used to remove and fix soft tissue problems and congenital anomalies.

Curing Tongue Frenulum Attachment

Laser frenectomy is a treatment for an engorged frenulum(lower portion of the tongue). It is especially helpful for children with troublesome teeth, which can hinder speech or nursing.

Advantages of Laser Dentistry

A few of the advantages that lasers could bring to improve the outcomes of patients during our routine practice are:

Less pain means less anxiety.

Lasers have been proven to offer a kind of analgesia that can reduce the requirement of local anaesthesia during procedures that are not invasive and also for surgical procedures using lasers. This may reduce anxiety for patients, particularly children who feel uncomfortable with drilling their teeth.

Minimally painful treatment

Even after using anaesthesia topical or injection into the gums, the heat and vibration generated by the drilling process may cause pain. Laser dentistry doesn’t create the same pain and can even reduce the requirement for anaesthesia in some instances.

Precision

Laser technology utilises a focused beam of light aimed at hard tissue, or hard tissue, exactly where the cut is required to be made. When taking out the tooth cavity to prepare for a filling, lasers can precisely remove only the portion decayed from the tooth while keeping the majority of the healthy portion intact.

Controls and minimises bleeding.

Research has proven that lasers targeting soft tissues cut and coagulate by sealing blood vessels simultaneously. This is very beneficial, particularly for patients on anticoagulant drugs. This means that it is not necessary to use sutures since the wound heals through a second intention.

Bactericidal effect

Laser beams can penetrate the periodontal pocket, eliminating bacteria that cause the illness and reducing the likelihood of infection and post-operative complications following surgical laser procedures.

The reduction of the neuropathic pain

Numerous studies have shown that photobiomodulation (low-level treatment with lasers) can reduce the pain of neuropathic patients who had Third molar surgeries, implants, and root canal therapies.
