What Can Lasers Do?
According to the Academy of Laser Dentistry (ALD), a laser works by emitting a highly concentrated beam of light energy powered by an activated medium, such as a container of carbon dioxide gas. The heat and light of the laser’s beam can be directed to kill bacteria or vaporise the water in oral tissues, allowing a dentist to remove highly specific areas of gingiva and other tissue. A powerful enough laser can also remove portions of bone.

Dental lasers can be used to help restore teeth, contour gingiva and perform other soft tissue procedures. What may be most appealing to dentists and their patients is that dental lasers allow treatment to be completed with a minimal amount of local anesthetic, and in some cases no anesthetic at all. This is an

in some cases no anesthetic at all. This is an amazing benefit to patients who may decline or avoid dental treatment due to a fear of needles. Furthermore, a dental laser can eliminate the need to use a high-speed handpiece for some procedures, thus making patients feel more at ease.

In addition to reducing and possibly eliminating the need for needles and drils, a dental laser may allow a general dentis to offer some treatments that might otherwise require a specialist referral. Examples include fibroma removal and frenectomies. With proper training, a laser may make it possible for an individual general dentist to provide these treatments in-office when he/she would not have before. However, always remember that all dental professionals should only provide treatments that they have received training on and are competent performing

The Advantages of Using Lasers in Dentistry
Like everything under the sun (or moon or stars or clouds), laser dentistry has its own pros and cons. One major pro is that patients may now avoid hearing the dreadful sound of the drill in some cases, as lasers in dentistry can now perform the traditional drill’s responsibilities.

Besides that, laser dentistry scores points with

patients and laser dentists in other ways, too.

Use of lasers in dentistry reduces the need for

local anesthesia and sedation dentistry. This is

because using a laser in dentistry may cause less

pain in some instances, so that anesthesia iso

longer a requirement.
