Laser-Assisted Dentistry

Often thought to be used in the treatment of eye diseases, laser treatment is commonly used by digital dentists. This treatment method is also referred to as a laser-assisted dental treatment.

What is laser-assisted dental treatment?

Laser-assisted dental treatment is the use of laser in addition to the existing dentistry tools to improve the quality of the treatments performed while improving oral and dental health. In other words, a more robust treatment may be obtained by using laser in some part of the treatment, not during the whole treatment process.

What are the areas of use for laser-assisted dental treatment?

Although “laser teeth whitening” is the first thing that comes to mind when it comes to laser-assisted dental treatments, the laser method is actually used in many different treatments by prosthetic dentists. Treatments using laser-assisted dental treatment are as follows:

  • Pink Aesthetic: Laser is used to balance gum levels.
  • Laser Tooth Bleaching Treatment: It is used to obtain brighter teeth by bleaching the tooth color.
  • Digital Smile Design: Laser treatment can be used in many stages of aesthetic smile treatment.
  • Root Channel Treatment: To reduce problems that may occur during channel operations and to perform a more appropriate treatment process.
  • Filling Treatment: Laser-assisted dental treatment is used to easily select and clean decayed tissues.
  • Laser-assisted dental treatment can also be used to treat diseases such as herpes and aphtous ulcers.
  • Laser dental treatment can be used to reduce post-procedure pain and edema in the extraction of embedded teeth such as wisdom teeth.

What are the advantages of laser-assisted dental treatment?

Laser-assisted dental treatment’s benefits, which range from aphtous ulcer treatment to aesthetic smile design, can be listed as follows:

  • Minimizes the rate of bleeding during oral and dental treatments.
  • Speeds up the healing process after surgical procedures performed on teeth and gums.
  • Reduces the severity of edema and pain and helps the recovery process to be more comfortable.
  • Inadvertent loss of dental tissue, which is healthy in traditional dentistry methods, is prevented and only the decayed parts are destroyed.
  • Provides precise disinfection prior to implant operation. This eliminates the risk of damage to the bone tissue of the teeth in conventional methods.
  • Anesthesia is not needed as it does not cause ache, pressure or pain caused by conventional dentistry tools. Of course, the amount of anesthesia deemed appropriate by the digital dentist during laser dental treatment can be applied.
  • It can help overcome this fear in children and adults with a dental phobia. It can also prevent new traumas from occurring because it is a painless method.
