Laser dentistry

Diode lasers are often used in dentistry for different treatments such as soft tissue surgery, periodontal treatment, teeth whitening, canker ulcer treatments and to relieve acute pain from the jaw joints.

The lasers offer precise cutting, coagulation and disinfection with very minimal discomfort and quick healing times for patients.

Soft tissue surgery

Lasers are used to perform reshaping and contouring gum tissue during cosmetic procedures. Lasers are also used to treat gum hyper pigmentation, operculectomy around a partially erupted wisdom tooth, frenectomy, exposing unerupted tooth/teeth prior to orthodontic treatment and soft tissue biopsies.

Periodontal treatment

Lasers are used for people suffering from gum disease to remove bacteria and infected tissue from the gums during periodontal therapy, this helps in promoting gum health. They can also be used to treat gum problems surrounding the implants.

Ulcer treatment

Lasers have shown promising results in treating mouth ulcers. Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) has been used to promote faster healing, reduce pain, and decrease inflammation associated with ulcers. Lasers can help stimulate tissue repair and improve blood circulation in the affected area. However, more research is needed to fully understand the effectiveness of laser therapy for treating ulcers.

Temporomandibular disorders (TMD)

Lasers are being explored for their potential in treating temporomandibular disorders (TMD), which affect the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and surrounding tissues. While research is ongoing, lasers may offer benefits such as pain relief, reducing inflammation, and promoting tissue healing in the TMJ area. However, their precise role in TMD treatment is still being investigated, and they are not yet widely used as a primary treatment modality for this condition.

Teeth whitening

Lasers enhance teeth whitening to give quick and effective results.
