What is laser dentistry?
Laser dentistry is an advanced dental technique that utilises focused light beams (lasers) to perform various dental procedures. The laser serves as a precise cutting tool or a vaporiser of tissue, allowing our dentists to perform treatments with precision. Lasers used in dentistry have different wavelengths, making them suitable for specific applications.
How does laser dentistry work?
Our laser device emits a concentrated beam of light energy that interacts with the targeted tissue. The intensity and duration of the laser pulse can be controlled by our dentist, providing greater flexibility during procedures. Depending on the treatment, the laser can either remove decayed tissue, reshape gums, or activate a bleaching agent for teeth whitening.
Why do we use lasers?
One of the key advantages of laser dentistry is its ability to minimise bleeding and swelling during procedures, as the high-energy light beam promotes blood clotting and sterilises the treatment area, reducing the risk of infection. This means that your treatment should be less invasive and even safer.
What is laser dentistry used to treat?
Laser dentistry can treat a wide range of dental conditions, including cavity detection and dental fillings. The lasers can detect cavities at an early stage, often before they are visible to the naked eye. For filling cavities, lasers can also precisely remove the decayed part of the tooth, preserving more of the healthy tooth structure. What’s more, they can also be used for gum disease treatment. Lasers are highly effective in treating gum disease because they remove infected tissue and bacteria from the gums, promoting gum reattachment and encouraging the healing process. Furthermore, for patients with “gummy” smiles or uneven gum lines, lasers can gently reshape the gum tissue, improving the smile aesthetics. With so many different ways to use lasers, it is a great idea to book a consultation to find out how we can use them to treat you and the kids!
The benefits of laser dentistry
Laser dentistry reduces the need for incisions and sutures, leading to faster healing and minimal discomfort. The gentle and quiet nature of laser treatments often helps anxious patients feel more at ease during dental procedures. Furthermore, lasers precisely target the affected area, preserving more of the surrounding healthy tissue. With less trauma to the tissues, healing time is significantly reduced compared to traditional methods. The laser uses energy to sterilise the area that is being treated, which minimises the risk of infection. Laser dentistry promotes blood clotting, leading to minimal bleeding and swelling during and after procedures.
