Laser Dentistry

So precise so accurate (no bleeding, no infection, no wounds)

Most issues laser dentistry treats are related to the gums. Some of these include:

  • Canker sore, herpetic and aphthous ulcer of oral mucosa
  • Treating root canal infections.
  • Treating gum disease.
  • Gingival troughing for crown preparation.
  • Biopsies
  • Exposing wisdom teeth.
  • vestibuloplasty
  • flap preparations
  • frenectomy
  • hemostasis

Removing benign oral tumours. Dentists choose laser dentistry because of distinct benefits that make the procedures go more smoothly, and also reduce discomfort and healing time for patients.

  • Patients are less likely to require sutures
  • Anaesthesia may not be necessary
  • The laser will sterilize the gums, making infection less likely
  • Less damage to gums shortens the healing time
  • Patients lose less blood than traditional surgery

Lasers deliver energy and heat in the form of light, and their uses in dentistry range from cleaning to removing tooth decay. A dental laser can also cut or eliminate tissue, such as gum tissue, when focused upon it. This works because infrared light is easily absorbed by water, and gum tissue consists largely of water. Therefore, a dentist or an oral surgeon might use lasers when altering a patient’s gum line.

Dentists can also use lasers to treat gum disease, because the concentrated heat generated by them is able to kill bacteria. In other situations, lasers help create brighter smiles. The tooth-bleaching chemicals used to whiten teeth are even more potent when exposed to the heat from a dental laser. Similarly, that heat can harden and “cure” a new filling that has been placed.

Many different types of lasers can now be found in dentists’ offices, including short-pulsed erbium: yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Er:YAG) lasers for gum resurfacing, carbon dioxide lasers for oral surgery and Argon lasers for curing fillings.

 

The Types of Lasers Used in Dentistry

The two main types of lasers dentists use during laser procedures are hard tissue and soft tissue lasers. Each laser uses a different wavelength that makes it appropriate for cutting into that specific type of tissue. This works because each kind of tissue absorbs wavelengths of light in different ways. By altering the light’s wavelength (and sometimes pulse) scientists have figured out how to craft lasers with light wavelengths compatible with the tissues in your mouth.

Hard Tissue Lasers
A hard tissue laser is used primarily for your teeth. The wavelength of one of these lasers cuts through both water and bone, specifically the calcium phosphate that’s in your bones and your teeth. These lasers can very accurately cut into your teeth, removing small amounts for shaping purposes or in preparation for procedures. Hard tissue lasers are used for:

  • Detecting cavities.
  • Dealing with tooth sensitivity.
  • Preparing teeth for dental fillings.

Soft Tissue Lasers

The soft tissue lasers use a light wavelength that hemoglobin and water absorb easily. Hemoglobin is the molecule found in blood, which makes soft tissue lasers ideal for gum work. Some soft tissue lasers are diode lasers, which is a type of continuous-wave laser.
These lasers are ideal for cutting into soft tissue and sealing the exposed blood vessels at the same time. This is the reason you don’t bleed very much during laser dentistry and why healing is quicker after laser dentistry. Soft tissue lasers are great for cosmetic procedures because you can begin to see results right away. Soft tissue lasers are used for:

Lengthening crowns.

  • Dealing with restricted tongue movement.
  • Reshaping the gums to create a more pleasing smile.
  • Removing folds in oral soft tissues caused by dentures.

Whether you’re having laser gum surgery or hard tissue work, expect an easier procedure and a shorter recovery time. Laser dentistry is a convenient solution to many oral and dental problems, whether serious in nature or simply cosmetic.
