Laser dentistry can be used to treat:
  1. Tooth decay.
  2. Gum disease.
  3. Impacted wisdom teeth.
  4. Sensitive teeth.
  5. Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD).

Laser Assisted Flap Surgery

Including the treatment of periodontal disease, dental lasers in today’s world are more focused and targeted for specific issues. Periodontists in particular have found that removing diseased tissue with lasers rather than a scalpel can be more comfortable for dental patients. That’s partly because a laser actually seals the tissue it cuts, rather than leaving a wound that requires stitches, there are no incisions separating the gum tissue from the underlying bone so that it is considered minimally invasive.

As this technology is safe and does not lead to local or systemic uneventful issues, thus it is used for medically compromised patients. Especially for patients who are diabetic as laser itself is bactericidal and involves less bleeding. It is also indicated for renal failure patients as it is bactericidal and painless, so need for postoperative drugs are not necessary.

It is helpful in treating children and old individuals with many other systemic problems like diabetes, hypertension and also good for other patients who are anxious about injections or suturing.

Root Canal - Laser assisted Treatment

One of the most common dental procedures performed is root canal. We have good experience in laser assisted root canal sterilization and almost all root canal treatments at our hospital are laser assisted.

Lasers can be of great assistance in root canal procedures. Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation (LASER) therapy makes use of light beams to remove or modify soft and hard tissues in the mouth.

Lasers essentially emit intense focused light energy, the particular properties of which can interact with biologic tissues. Lasers can now be used to open the surface of a tooth to access the root canal, remove diseased tissue, clean, disinfect and shape the canal, and fill it.

The use of lasers in assisting root canal disinfection is more promising than in root canal preparation. Lasers can be used to remove the dental pulp and organic debris, and to even modify (shape and clean) the dentinal walls of the root canals. Once preparation is complete and the root canal is sealed, the laser may be used to soften and mold the sealant for the root canal system.

Teeth Bleaching

Laser teeth Bleaching is one of the most common ways to solve the problem of discolored teeth. This procedure has become popular because it is safe and it will not cause damage to the patient's gums or the structure of the tooth. Because people are not able to do this procedure within their own homes, they must turn to their dentists. At this point, their dentist will check which type of whitening procedure is most appropriate for them.

At the beginning of the procedure, the patient has a rubber dam placed inside their mouth so their gums receive protection. Then, a layer of bleaching gel is applied to their teeth that contain natural pH levels. The next step is the gel for the laser, and which causes the mineral accelerant held within it to activate. This causes the whitening gel to transform into oxygen. At this point it covers the tooth's enamel and enables the whitening gel to become penetrated into the tooth's lower levels so teeth whiten. With laser whitening, it is possible for teeth to look up to between five to six shades brighter. The purpose of the laser is to speed up the process of whitening through its interaction with the gel that causes the whitening to occur. It typically takes about one hour for the procedure.

Laser Gum contouring

Laser gum contouring is a cosmetic treatment that is used to remove excess gum tissue and to correct the gum line. Laser gum contouring helps make teeth look more proportionate and the gum line even. The laser gum contouring procedure is relatively painless. An anesthetic is applied to the gums to numb them during the procedure prior to treatment. The dental laser is then applied to the gums, excess tissue is removed, and the gum line is finely shaped. The dental lasers cauterize as they cut, reducing bleeding and the likelihood of infection, as well as leading to a faster recovery time.

Recovery can last a few days to a week or two, during which time mild soreness of the gums may be expected. During recovery, it is necessary to take special care to not irritate the gums. Switch to a soft bristled toothbrush and use light pressure while your gums heal. Also, avoid eating hard, crunchy foods, like corn chips, and foods with small seeds or kernels that may get stuck between the gums and teeth, as all of these may irritate the gums and lead to infection.

Laser Depigmentation

The darkness of gums is due to excessive melanin pigmentation.

In this treatment the superficial pigmented layer of gums is removed and naturally replaced by healthy pink gums in few days. Due to latest development in Dentistry, there are better options where you can get this treatment done with use of lasers also.

This is especially effective for people, whose dark color gums are visible when they smile thus spoiling the appearance of the face, making them conscious while speaking.

Role of lasers

A dental laser can reduce the production of melanin in the gingival tissue to target and ablate the melanocytes. Among the various techniques used for gingival depigmentation, laser offer a promising therapeutic option since, it is simple, painless and predictable. Laser has been recognized as the most effective and reliable technique having many advantages over scalpel technique as it is relatively blood less and painless surgical technique.

Laser Desensitization

Dentinal hypersensitivity

Sensitive teeth can really make a difference in your lifestyle and take the pleasure out of enjoying ice cream, cold beverages and certain treats. Tooth sensitivity is manifested when taking cold or hot drinks and foods, exposing teeth to cold air, in case of damaged nerves or various oral diseases.

Role of Lasers

Dental laser treatment can be used to treat that annoying sensitive spot. Just a few minutes with a laser waved over that sensitive area will diminish or eliminate that source of discomfort for a couple of years in most cases. The effects are immediate, and no anesthesia is necessary. When applied to the dentin and pulp the laser suppresses the potential of the nerve fibres by eliminating the tubules. It is felt that laser treatment reduces sensitivity by coagulation of protein without altering the surface of the dentin. Laser desensitization can give an immediate relief from sensitive teeth and can be done without any anaesthesia.

Low-level laser therapy

Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is a newly developing technique in dentistry, although it has been used among medical, dental, physiotherapy, and veterinary professions in some parts of the world for decades. LLLT can provide tremendous therapeutic benefits to patients, such as accelerated wound healing and pain relief.
