No one wants surgery. The prospect of undergoing a surgery, especially dental surgery, scares the bravest among us due to the conventional treatments
with scalpel and the bleeding and pain associated with it. Imagine a technique that can eliminate all the pain from surgeries.
Using laser, many of the surgeries and procedures can be painless, minimally invasive with minimal post-operative discomfort and excellent healing.
Patients require little or no anaesthesia for most of the laser procedures.
This technology is helping dentistry gain confidence of people and their popularity among patients
Benefits of Laser treatment
Laser has several advantages –
One, the procedures are performed using soft tissue may not require stitches. Little or no
anaesthesia is needed.
for most procedures.There is minimal bleeding as the high-energy light beam aids in the
clotting and helps in achieving haemostasis quickly.
The beam also sterilises the area being worked on, lowering risk of bacterial infection.
The precision lowers damage to the surrounding tissue with patients reporting faster wound healing and tissue regeneration and minimal
post-operative swelling, thus reducing the need for post-operative analgesics. Diode laser is safe to use with patients who have a pacemaker.
APPLICATION OF LASER DENTISTRY
Lasers represent an innovative and more precise technology for soft tissue applications,
bleaching and pain therapy.
Periodontal therapy (Soft tissue debridement, flap surgeries) Bleeding gums and gum recession are common signs of gum disease,
caused by the presence of bacteria and inflammation inside the gums.
Laser removes inflamed areas and infected tissue from inside the gums. Improved healing of the
gum tissue follows after treatment along with proper oral care.
