Imagine visiting your dentist for a surgical procedure, but going through it without any scalpels, needles and stitches. The laser treatment is a much more comfortable alternative to the traditional procedures as it requires less anesthesia. Also, the aftermath can be much more pleasant. Hospitals in India are known for their state-of-the art dentistry laser technologies. India has world’s top-rated laser dentists who have years of experience and knowledge dentistry which include general, cosmetic and restoration dentistry.
Lasers have been used in dentistry since 1990 and there are more than 40 uses for it. Initially lasers were very expensive, but now they have become much cheaper, and portable models have increased its versatility. Laser is an acronym for “Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation”. Lasers have long been the standard of care in medicine for many surgical and cosmetic procedures such as LASIK, wrinkle removal, hair removal etc., and thousands of dentists around the world have performed millions of procedures with less need for shots, anesthesia, drills and post-op numb lips.
How Do Lasers Work in Dentistry?
Lasers can be used as a safe and effective treatment for a wide range of dental procedures and are often used in conjunction with other dental instruments. All lasers work by delivering energy in the form of light. When used for surgical and dental procedures, the laser acts as a cutting instrument or a vaporizer of tissue that it comes in contact with.
When used for “curing” a filling, the laser helps to strengthen the bond between the filling and the tooth. When used in teeth-whitening procedures, the laser acts as a heat source and enhances the effect of tooth-bleaching agents. Lasers are also used to remove decay within a tooth, to reshape gums and remove bacteria during root canal procedures, to remove a small piece of tissue (biopsy) so that it can be examined for cancer, to remove lesions in the mouth.
The application of lasers in dentistry opens the door for dentists to perform a wide variety of dental procedures they otherwise may not be capable of performing. Read more about “Laser Dentistry Procedures”
