Benefits of Laser Dentistry:

One of the major benefits of laser dentistry is that it is virtually painless. Unlike traditional dental procedures that require anesthesia to numb the target area or drilling and cutting, laser dentistry is minimally invasive and doesn’t require any incisions. This ensures that our patients enjoy a lot more comfortable and stress-free experience while receiving the dental care they need.
As mentioned earlier, another advantage of laser dentistry is its precision. The laser targets specific areas of your mouth and performs the procedure with incredible accuracy. This minimizes the risk and complications associated with the procedure and ensures that the patient receives the best possible dental care and services.

Types of Laser Dentistry:

There are several types of laser dentistry each with unique benefits and applications that include:

  • Hard tissue laser: Lasers are used to perform various procedures on the hard tissues of your mouth such as bone and teeth. Cavity preparation, old fillings removal, or tooth preparation has become easy for hard tissue laser.
  • Soft tissue laser: These lasers are used to perform various procedures on soft tissues such as teeth, gums, and cheeks. They are often used for gum shaping or recontouring, gum disease treatment, and gum surgery. Such lasers are also used for treating cold sores and canker sores that are quite painful. The laser deadens the nerve endings in this area and provides instant pain relief. Moreover, laser works on biostimulation therapy thereby helping in faster healing by increasing collagen formation.
    The laser can even reduce the frequency of cold sore and canker sores and can even help in avoiding future breakouts.
  • Diode laser: These are commonly used for teeth whitening procedures. The lasers are used for a wide range of soft tissue procedures including gum disease treatment, and gum contouring as well.
  • Carbon dioxide laser: These are used for hard and soft tissue procedures including cavity preparation for fillings and restoration. Although they can be used for gum contouring and oral surgery as well. The laser is often useful for more complex procedures that require greater control and precision.
  • Zoom Whitening: One of the most effective and time-efficient teeth whitening treatments is zoom whitening. By using blue zoom light and bleaching chemicals, the technology helps to penetrate the enamel to break down stains. For Zoom whitening, there will be a teeth cleaning session beforehand. It’s important to remove plaque buildup over your teeth’ surface to ensure better results.

Cost of Laser Dentistry

The cost of dentistry can vary depending on several factors, including the location of the dental practice, the complexity of the procedure, and the dental clinic’s available equipment. In general, laser dentistry may cost more than traditional dental procedures due to the advanced technology and expertise required to perform the treatment.
The cost of laser gum surgery may range from $500 to $1200 depending on the extent of treatment required. Similarly, when it comes to laser teeth whitening, the cost may range from $300 to $500 based on the type of laser used and the number of sessions required. For Zoom teeth whitening, the cost may start from around $450.

What is the photobiomodulation process?

Photobiomodulation is a non-invasive therapy that uses low-level laser light or light-emitting diode to stimulate cellular function in the body. It can be used in dentistry for a variety of applications including pain management, reducing inflammation, and promoting tissue repair and regeneration.
Our experts are skilled to use PBM therapy for postoperative pain and swelling management such as extraction and implant placement.
Aside from this, for treating oral ulcers and managing temporomandibular joint disorders photobiomodulation therapy is useful.

Are lasers painful?

Laser dentistry is generally not painful; however, it can cause a slight sensation of heat during the procedure. However, the level of discomfort can depend on the type of laser being used, the specific dental procedure, and based on the individual’s tolerance level. If you have any concerns regarding pain or discomfort, it’s always best to discuss your concerns with your dentist or healthcare provider.

Are lasers safe?

Yes, lasers are considered safe in dentistry when used by a trained and experienced dental professional. Lasers can be used to precisely target and remove decayed and damaged tissue without harming the surrounding one. Also, you will get the benefits of lesser bleeding, lesser swelling, reduced risk of infection, and can promote faster healing.
