In recent years, laser dentistry has replaced many traditional dental procedures, making the treatments more accurate and less painful. This new approach in dentistry uses a light beam projected by a dental laser. Dental lasers can be used to perform a wide variety of treatments, including soft tissue remodeling and removal.
- Acceleration of healing and tissue regeneration
- Better preservation of the natural tooth
- Reduced bleeding during and after treatment
- Reduced need for anesthesia
- Reduced need for suture and number of sutures
- Reduced risk of bacterial infections after procedures
- Preparation of the teeth - Before the arrival of laser dentistry, a drill was needed to prepare the tooth for a filling. Lasers can now completely eliminate the need for drilling and anesthesia. Lasers also kill oral bacteria around the surgical site successfully.
- Soft tissue remodeling - Dental lasers can dissolve soft tissue to better expose the natural tooth (crown elongation), reshape soft tissue to make "too long" smiles more attractive, and remove excess soft tissue caused by wearing a soft tooth. dental prosthesis.
- Frénectomy - Lasers can improve speech and eating habits of babies, children and adults by loosening the tongue.
- Ablation of tumor - When benign tumors have formed in the soft tissues of the mouth, a dental laser can completely eliminate them without causing pain.
- Whitening - Lasers can greatly accelerate the teeth whitening process by increasing the activity of the particles contained in the peroxide bleach solution.
- Biopsy - Lasers are sometimes used to perform soft tissue biopsy in suspect areas. This biopsy can be performed quickly and with great precision.
