What is Laser Dentistry?

Laser dentistry involves the use of specialized dental lasers that emit highly concentrated beams of light to treat various dental procedures, including gum surgeries, cavity treatment, teeth whitening, and gum reshaping. It allows for more accurate and efficient treatment.

Treatments Done Using Laser Dentistry:

  • Teeth Whitening
  • Treatment of Gum Diseases
  • Treatment of Tooth Decay
  • Treatment of Hypersensitivity

Types of Lasers Used For Treatment

  • Hard Tissue Lasers These are used for teeth and can cut through bones and water. They are used for detecting cavities, tooth sensitivity and preparation of teeth for dental fillings.
  • Soft Tissue Lasers – These can be absorbed by water and haemoglobin very easily and are used to cut soft tissues and seal the blood vessels which are cut through.They are used for reshaping gums, treating tongue movement,modifying the lengthening of crowns.

Benefits of Laser Dentistry

 Some of the benefits of Laser Dentistry includes:

  • It causes minimal pain and reduces a patient;s dependency on anaesthesia.
  • It removes anxiety and stress in patients who are scared about drilling or tissue removal.
  • Less bleeding and swelling occurs during soft tissue treatments.
  • Helps in cavity removal.
  • Reduces risk during treatments as they are incredibly precise techniques.
  • Lasers will sterilize gums lowering the chances of infection.

Some Important Things To Note:

  • Lasers cannot be used on teeth which already have fillings.
  • This technology can’t be used around old fillings , to remove defective crowns or to prepare teeth for insertion of a bridge.
  • Anaesthesia is required in most cases.
  • A patient should always wear special glasses to protect their eyes during the procedure.

What is the expected healing time after undergoing laser treatment?

If your dentist uses lasers into your treatment, you can expect a more positive post-operative experience compared to traditional tools like drills or scalpels. Laser dentistry offers a smoother process, minimizing the presence of open wounds and reducing irritation in your mouth. As a result, you should be able to resume your regular activities very soon after the treatment.
