What is Laser Dentistry?

Laser dentistry involves using low-beam energy to perform a range of dental treatments: cavity removal, periodontal treatment, ulcer treatment, and whitening. The lasers used in dentistry are specifically designed for oral tissue, allowing dentists to precisely target and treat specific areas within the mouth. 

How is laser dentistry used?

  • Gum Disease Treatment: Dental lasers are highly effective in treating gum disease, also known as periodontal disease. The laser can remove infected tissue and bacteria, promoting gum reattachment to the teeth and facilitating the healing process.
  • Cavity Removal: Lasers can efficiently remove decayed portions of teeth, preparing the affected area for dental fillings. The targeted approach minimizes damage to healthy enamel, preserving the tooth's integrity.

  • Teeth Whitening: Laser-assisted teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic procedure. The laser activates a bleaching agent applied to the teeth, accelerating the whitening process and delivering impressive results.

  • Biopsies and Lesion Removal: Lasers are used for painless and quick soft tissue biopsies, allowing dentists to diagnose oral abnormalities. They are also effective in removing benign lesions or tissue overgrowth

Laser dentistry has revolutionized the dental field, offering numerous advantages for both patients and dentists. With its minimally invasive nature, enhanced precision, and accelerated healing, laser technology has made dental procedures more comfortable, efficient, and effective.
