LASER Treatment - (Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation), emits highly focused beams of light energy. This laser light interacts with tissue, enabling tissue removal or reshaping. The use of lasers can enhance the efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and patient comfort in dental treatments.
Laser dentistry offers several benefits compared to traditional dental techniques, including faster healing & tissue regeneration, more natural tooth structure preservation, reduced bleeding during and after treatment, decreased need for anaesthesia, fewer stitches or sutures, and a lower risk of bacterial infections. Laser dentistry is often a more comfortable experience for patients, as it is less invasive and causes minimal discomfort and pain.
Yes, it is particularly effective in procedures such as crown lengthening, which involves reshaping the gum and bone tissue to allow the proper placement of dental crowns. Laser technology can also be used for tooth reshaping, where the laser trims the dental enamel to create a more even smile and resize disproportionately large teeth. Cosmetic gum contouring is another treatment that utilises lasers to reshape the gums, improving the appearance of a gummy smile or crooked gum line.
Laser dentistry is generally suitable for a wide range of patients. However, the treatment plan will depend on individual factors and the dentist’s assessment. Certain medical conditions or medications may contraindicate the use of lasers. Disclose your complete medical history and existing conditions to your dentist before laser dental procedures. A qualified dentist will evaluate your specific needs and determine if laser dentistry is appropriate for you.
Laser dentistry can often provide efficient and time-saving treatment compared to traditional methods. The precise nature of lasers often allows for more conservative treatment, minimising the need for multiple appointments. However, the number of appointments required will vary depending on the specific procedure and the individual patient.
