Laser dentistry potentially offers a more comfortable treatment option for a number of dental
procedures involving hard or soft tissue compared to drills and other non-laser tools.
Laser Therapy is used in a variety of procedures, including:
- treating hypersensitivity
- treating tooth decay
- treating gum disease
- teeth whitening
How are laser treatments performed?
The two main types of procedures used for laser therapy are hard tissue and soft tissue
procedures. Hard tissue refers to the teeth, and soft tissue refers to the gums.
Common hard tissue procedures include:
- Cavity detection. Finding evidence of tooth decay early by finding evidence of
- Tooth preparations and dental fillings. Local anaesthesia and traditional drills are often not needed with laser treatments. Lasers can kill bacteria in a cavity, which can aid in the long-term health of a tooth.
- Treating tooth sensitivity. Tubules on the tooth’s root can be sealed for the teeth that have sensitivity to hot and cold.
Common soft tissue procedures include:
- Treating a “gummy smile.” Lasers are used to reshape gum tissue associated with “gummy smile,” in which the gums’ length covers much of the tooth.
- Crown lengthening. This procedure reshapes both gum tissue and bone for healthier tooth structure, which helps with placing restorations on the teeth.
- Removing soft tissue folds. Lasers can remove soft tissue folds from ill-fitting
dentures without pain or sutures.
