Types of Dental Lasers

Variety of hard tissue lasers and soft tissue lasers are available in dentistry

HARD TISSUE LASER

These type of lasers have wavelength that can be easily absorbed by hydroxyapatite (present in bone and teeth) ,making them more effective for cutting tooth structure . These can precisely cut tooth structure in small amount for shaping process and also for tooth preparations.

USES

Cavity detection- lasers helps to detect caries by reading off byproducts of decay.
Tooth preparation – these can kill and remove bacteria present in the decayed part , thereby eliminating the need of drills and long treatment time. Also lasers can remove caries present beneath the filled part without removing the restoration.
Teeth sensitivity – lasers prevent sensitivity by sealing dentinal tubules that are responsible for hot and cold sensitivity.
Apicoetomy – this procedure is carried out to save the natural tooth by remove root end part of the infected tooth hence , reducing discomfort and recovery period.
Root canal treatment : lasers can remove all the microbes that traditional chemicals fail to remove hence , providing best treatment results.
In pediatric root canal treatment or pulpectomy . Here the laser beam can reach the peri apex or apex of the tooth to remove infection which conventional treatment fails to.
To aid in bleeching or tooth whitening process.
Can help in ridge preparation for placement of complete denture or full teeth set.
SOFT TISSUE LASERS

Soft tissue lasers produce wavelengths that can be easily absorbed by haemoglobin and water. Nd:YAG lasers used in periodontal therapy can effectively kill bacteria and also helps in healing of tissues. CO2 laser used in dentistry can remove tissue in a faster rate and also reduce adjacent tissue damage.

Moreover these act by sealing blood vessels and nerve endings thereby reducing post operative pain. This makes lasers special as they make the procedure comfortable for patients.
