Lasers In Dentistry! What Do I Need To Know?

Lasers In Dentistry! What Do I Need To Know?

When one hears the word lasers, the first thing that comes to mind is Star Wars. If only dentistry was as exciting as Star Wars! So now that we all agree on that, let’s see how lasers are changing dentistry and what we have to look forward to in the future. It’s actually some pretty cool stuff, even if you would probably rather be watching Star Wars.

There are several different types of lasers currently in use in dental clinics today.

Soft Tissue Lasers (Diode):

This is the typical laser you’ll see in a general dental clinic and is also the least expensive costing 1-4 lakh INR. It is only used for cutting soft tissue (ex. gum tissue). This type of laser doesn’t actually use the laser tip to cut tissue. It has a glass fiber than transmits the laser pulse which is charred and then heated up by the laser pulses. It is this heated glass tip that actually does the cutting. It isn’t as efficient in cutting tissue as say a scalpel would be but it makes up for that in the fact that there is little to no bleeding afterwards and the tissue heals beautifully. There are a couple of good applications for this type of laser:

  • Frenectomies (for example with tongue ties or a frenum between your top front teeth that contributes to the teeth wanting to spread apart)
  • Removing a small amount of gum tissue around a tooth before taking an impression for a crown
  • Stopping bleeding
  • Reduction in symptoms for cold sores and ulcers
  • Crown lengthening procedures for exposing tooth structure for crowns
  • Teeth Whitening procedures

Combined Hard and Soft Tissue Lasers (Carbon Dioxide, Neodymium Yttrium Aluminum Garnet aka Nd: YAG, and Er:YAG):

These types of lasers are the more cutting edge side of lasers in dentistry. They have the ability to cut both hard and soft tissue as well as some restorative materials. They can cut teeth, bone, and tissue. Each type has a slightly different application and usefulness. These lasers are also currently very expensive costing upwards of 35 lakh INR in some cases. This has limited their adoption significantly. One of the biggest benefits to these types of lasers is that the amount of anesthetic needed to numb a tooth is much more limited and in some cases not needed at all due to laser pulses effects on the nerve. Some current procedures that are performed with these types of lasers include:

  • Frenectomies – as explained above
  • Gingivectomies  – Excess gum tissue is removed for a better esthetic look
  • Laser assisted new attachment protocol (LANAP) – Periodontist’s often perform this procedure in which the laser is used to clean the pockets around teeth and in many cases it can help to regrow bone around teeth, which was previously impossible
  • Biopsies – Suspicious areas can be easily removed with a laser for evaluation by a pathologist.
  • Crown lengthening surgery – Bone is removed around a tooth to allow more space for a crown to be fitted to a tooth.
  • Preparation of teeth for cavities – These lasers can be used to remove decay and prepare teeth for fillings. It actually cuts the decayed area more readily due to the increased water content of those areas. It can’t cut amalgam or porcelain but does cut tooth structure and composite filling material.

As you must have gauged by now, the lasers find a versatile use in the realm of dentistry. They truly adhere to the "No Cut, No Stitch, No Blood" protocol, thus alleviating the fear of the patient. Next time you visit your dentist, just sneak around and ask for the lasers, if any and their utilities in dentistry. Good and upcoming dental clinics keep their technological standards at par with the international community by incorporating dental lasers in their practices. Give it a shot, at least once!

You are suffering from submucous fibrosis. You will need to take steroids to reduce the fibrous lesions and start some mouth exercise to improve your mouth opening.

Is Drinking the water in the morning, before brush or after brush? Which is better ? I heard that drinking water after brush cause chemical reaction in our stomach which is there in toothpaste manufacture! I think before brushing the teeth , drinking water is good for health that clears the stomach and loose the motion! Which is better before or after.

You may try warm water rinses with salt added. Avoid any spiced foods till healing occurs. And show your dentist once, he shall be able to help you better by doing a thorough examination and also prescribe analgesics for pain control.

everyone doesn't have pearl white teeth. your teeth color matches your skin colour. you can go for scaling and polishing followed by bleaching for more whiter teeth. avoid harsh brushing. it will make your teeth look more yellow by eroding the whiter enamel n expound the yellower dentin.

Dear lybrate-user, you have bleeding gums due to accumulation of food debris, which is a result of inadequate maintenance of oral hygiene. I suggest that you get thorough professional cleaning/scaling done from a dentist, and use antibacterial mouthwashes thereafter. You should also clean your tongue twice daily with a tongue cleaner. Following all these measures will solve your problem. Hope that helps.

Hello. When brushing twice a day and flossing doesn't help improve your yellow teeth, it's time to consider other options. Teeth become yellow due to stains – both deep and surface-level – as well as other causes that sometimes aren't under our control. Although coffee and cigarettes leave stains on your teeth over time, thin tooth enamel also makes teeth look yellow. Tooth enamel is the hard, white surface of your teeth, and underneath it is a pale brown substance called dentin. Thick enamel looks white, but thin enamel allows dentin tones to show through, making teeth look yellow from the outside. Enamel naturally wears thin as people age, but acids from foods and drinks such as sour candies, oranges and soda also thin the enamel by eroding its surface. Saliva neutralizes acid and washes it away, but people suffering from dry mouth miss out on this protective effect. Other causes of yellow teeth include antibiotic use or excessive fluoride intake in young children, which can cause yellow-stained adult teeth later. Treatments for certain conditions can also affect tooth color. For example, head and neck radiation and chemotherapy can cause teeth discoloration. In addition, certain infections in pregnant mothers can cause tooth discoloration in the infant by affecting enamel development. Certain medication, mouth rinses can also causes yellow staining. Preventing Yellow Teeth: Avoiding smoking, coffee and soda helps prevent yellow teeth, or you can get into the habit of drinking those darker beverages through a straw. Drink milk or plain water after eating or drinking something acidic to help reduce the acid's eroding effect. Brushing and flossing also help, and avoiding snacks between meals allows your saliva to dilute the acids in your mouth too. Using over-the-counter whitening agents will also helps. Discolorations are generally responsive to bleaching procedures.
