What is Laser Dentistry?

Laser dentistry uses focused light beams to perform dental procedures with high precision. The lasers can be used to shape or remove tissue; making them a versatile tool in both soft tissue & hard tissue procedures. This technology has been a game-changer in dental treatments, providing a less invasive alternative to many traditional techniques.

Common Laser Dentistry Treatments

Cavity Detection & Fillings:
Lasers can detect early signs of cavities; allowing for prompt treatment. They are also used to remove decayed parts of the tooth efficiently & prepare the surrounding enamel for the filling.

Gum Disease Treatment:
Laser technology is highly effective in treating periodontal disease. It helps remove infected tissue and bacteria from the gums, promoting faster healing and reducing discomfort.

Teeth Whitening:
Lasers accelerate the teeth whitening process by activating the bleaching agents; resulting in a brighter smile in less time.

Biopsies and Lesion Removal:
Lasers can be used to perform biopsies or remove lesions from the mouth with minimal discomfort & a faster healing time.

For patients with a tongue-tie or lip-tie; laser frenectomy is a quick & effective treatment option that reduces recovery time and discomfort.

Benefits of Laser Dentistry

Minimised Pain and Discomfort:
Laser dentistry procedures are generally less painful than traditional methods; often reducing the need for anesthesia.

Precision & Accuracy:
The precision of lasers allows for more accurate targeting of diseased tissue, preserving more of the healthy surrounding tissue.

Reduced Risk of Infection:
The laser’s high-energy beam sterilises the area, thus reducing the risk of bacterial infections post-procedure.

Faster Healing and Recovery:
Laser treatments promote faster healing and tissue regeneration, resulting in shorter recovery times for patients.

Less Bleeding and Swelling:
The laser cauterises as it cuts, reducing bleeding and swelling during and after the procedure.
