All About Laser Dentistry - Methods and Results

A very interesting thing, that most people would have noticed during their visit to the clinic is the white light that is used on the teeth. This is laser light, which is used extensively over the last couple of decades in dentistry for a variety of treatments. The following are some procedures where laser is commonly used.

  1. Whitening teeth: In-office bleaching is done by applying the whitening agent on the tooth and activating it by laser light. This instant result is whiter teeth and a brighter smile.

  2. Caries: In some cases, laser light is used to remove the decayed portion of the tooth and shape the surrounding healthy tooth to receive the restorative material.

  3. Restorations: When composite resins are used to fill the space left by tooth decay, the decayed portion is removed and the enamel etched to improve adhesion. The composite material is then filled in the tooth space to achieve the desired shape and then light-cured.

  4. Veneers: Where a thin layer of the existing tooth is removed to provide a whiter tooth, then laser light is used. These chemicals are inactive and only become activated when exposed to laser light. In cases of both restorations and veneers, one big advantage is it gives sufficient working time for the dentist to shape the material to the desired form and then activate it.

  5. Gingivitis: Laser is also used in gum diseases where bacteria are removed and the gums are reshaped. Using laser on the root surfaces ensures better removal of the hardened calculus and promotes gum reattachment of the gums to the tooth surfaces.

  6. Root canal therapy: In the root spaces, if there was an infection, laser light can help remove the bacteria before filling up the root canal with gutta percha.

  7. Soft tissue biopsy or lesion removal: Biopsies of the lips, gums, and tongue can be done using laser light. If the lesions are too small and require removal, it can be done by laser, thereby avoiding the need for surgery

Results: In all the above procedures, the laser is more effective than the conventional method that it is replacing. Some advantages include:

  1. Less painful

  2. Anesthesia not required

  3. Avoids tooth drilling in some cases of very minor decay, so patient is at ease

  4. Reduces bleeding and swelling when dealing with soft tissues

  5. Reduces the amount of tooth removal during cavity preparation

Not all situations can be managed with a laser treatment though and conventional biopsies and drills will be required in some cases. As with all other dental situations, a detailed discussion with the dentist on the pros and cons and the patient condition will help make an informed decision.

I have pain in my jaw joint in front and below the ear from long time. May I know what is the problem? Why this happens?

I have pain in my jaw joint in front and below the ear from long time. May I know what is the problem? Why this happens?
Hi lybrate-user, There could be two reasons behind the pain you are experiencing. Either you have a decayed tooth (not necessarily visible with naked eye) since a long time which is causing non-specific pain in the jaw, radiating to the ear; or you you have a hyper-mobile joint (temporomandibular joint- which connects lower jaw to the skull). In case of a decayed tooth, it is ,quite likely that you may have to undergo an RCT. However, in case of a problem with the joint, you may be required to take some muscle relaxants and adopt an soft-diet regime for a few days, to give the joint some rest. Kindly consult me privately on Lybrate for more specific answers. Take care.

It could be because of the inflammation of your gums due to accumulation of tartar in your teeth. You need scaling.

Asking your doctor if an antiobiotic medicine can be taken is advisable as it can help in reducing the infection and swelling. It can also be taken after the treatment for faster healing.

I am having gene problem of tooth. My father and mother also have. I am facing cavity problem. What should I do?

MDS
Dentist, Lucknow
Hi, facing cavity issues with or without pain is not uncommon but labeling it to be genetic is quite premature unless genetic mapping of the disease has been done. It most often depends on the oral hygiene than genes. And if the tooth structure is genetically weak then there are ways to strengthen it or reinforce it. Cavities can always be restored unless and until u have lost whole of tooth crown by it. Kindly get your dental rehabilitation done as soon as possible. Thanks n healing regards

Sir. My father had a swelling on his left parotid gland a month ago. The doctor had a doubt that it might be a tumour and preferred a niddle test after his course of medications was over. Upon ultrasound scanning it was found that the gland was slightly enlarged. He took the medicines for 15 days and the disease was cured. Now he complains of having pain in his jaws since last week out of which the LEFT side seems to be more painful. As he had been consuming beetle nuts ,pan masala and alcohol for quite a long time, the doctor said that it is a oral submucous fibrosis and has prescribed him medicines for the same. He now worries that something might be associated with the parotid gland problem. Is their anything to worry.

Firstly parotid gland and sub mucus fibrosis are two different diseases. Parotid gland is affected by infection, tumor but not by OSMF. The pain and swelling on swelling on left side could be because of parotid gland infection. If you are still in doubt the next test can be MRI scan. As far as Sub mucus fibrosis, a progressive non painful condition caused by tobacco betel nut chewing with characteristic features of reduced mouth opening, burning sensation with spicy food. It’s a precancerous condition. The patient must lay off his habits, chillies spicy food and the medication has a limited role in curing the fibrous bands already formed. The surgical option is exercised when the disease is too severe. My advise is to rule out parotid gland disease first and stop all habits tobacco, alcohol, spicy fried boiling hot food and take medication for SMF.
