Laser dentistry is a treatment in which an instrument called the laser emits a highly focused, high-energy beam of light with different wavelengths that produce different effects in different tissues, such as on the gums or the hard tooth substance, but also metallic structures such as a dental implant.
The light rays are absorbed by the tissue and are then used in the form of heat to cut tissue, reduce the germs in the treatment area and stop bleeding.
When treating severe periodontal disease, the traditional method requires surgery to open the gums to remove the stones hidden deep in the periodontal pocket. The laser can directly vaporize stones and eliminate bacteria and bacterial toxins. Therefore, laser treatment can not only eliminate the pain of traditional surgery but also helps recover faster. Today’s laser technology has brought a new stage to dental treatment, making dental treatment faster, cleaner, and more acceptable.
For hard tissues, laser treatment has lower noise and less vibration, and most importantly, it reduces the patient’s pain-often without anesthetics; postoperative discomfort is greatly reduced.
For soft tissues, the laser provides bleeding-free cutting, complete disinfection, and faster healing.
