Advantage of using laser Technology
- It does not require stitches
- Even anaesthesia is not required in particular treatments
- With the use of high-energy beam, the blood is clotted of the exposed blood vessels, resulting in a minimal loss of blood.
- The high-energy beam also sterilises the area, resulting in a minimised bacterial infections.
Tissue damage is minimized along with faster healing of wounds.
Types of Dental Lasers
Hard tissue Lasers are used to cut the bone and tissues with extreme precision while minimizing pain and bleeding. Such lasers are often used during composite bonding and also repairing of dental fillings that have worn down through time. They can be used in procedures like cavity detector, dental fillings and also for the treatment of tooth sensitivity.
Soft Tissue lasers are used for periodontal treatment as it can kill the bacteria and restricts its growth. Apart from that it also aids in re-growth of tissues. These lasers can be used in crown lengthening, reshaping gum tissues, frenectomy and Epulis procedures.
