Laser Dentistry

A dental laser is a type of laser designed specifically for use in oral surgery or dentistry. Lasers have been used in dentistry since 1994 to treat a number of dental problems. Laser Dentistry is used as an effective and safe treatment for a wide range of dental procedures. They are also often used in conjunction with other dental instruments.

Laser dentistry includes the treatment of the following dental problems:

  • Tooth decay:Lasers are used to remove decay within a tooth and prepares the surrounding enamel for the filling. They are also used to cure or harden a filling.
  • Gum disease:Lasers are also used during root canal procedures to reshape gums and remove bacteria.
  • Biopsy or lesion removal.Lasers can be used to remove a small piece of tissue called a biopsy so that it can be examined for cancer. They are also used to remove lesions in the mouth and reduce the discomfort of cold sores and canker.
  • Teeth whitening: They are used to speed up the in-office teeth whitening procedures. The peroxide bleaching solution, applied to the tooth surface, is activated by laser energy, thereby speeding up the whitening process.
  • Other dental procedures:
    • Lasers help to manage gum tissue during impressions for crowns or other procedures.
    • They also remove overgrown tissues which are caused by certain medications.
    • They help to treat infections in root canal.

How do the lasers work in dentistry?

The lasers work by delivering energy in the form of light. The laser acts as a cutting instrument or a vaporizer of tissue that it comes in contact with when used for surgical and dental procedures. When the lasers are used for curing a filling, it helps to strengthen the bond between the tooth and the filling. During teeth-whitening procedures, the laser acts as a heat source and helps to enhance the effect of tooth-bleaching agents.

Benefits of Laser Dentistry
