Laser Dentistry

Non-invasive and precise

Laser dentistry is the use of lasers to treat a number of different dental conditions. This laser light produces a reaction when it hits tissue, allowing it to remove or shape the tissue. It is used in a variety of procedures. Laser dentistry is a convenient solution to many oral and dental problems, whether serious in nature or simply cosmetic. Laser dentistry is a minimally invasive option

Types of Dental Lasers

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved of a variety of hard and soft tissuelasers for use in the dental treatment of adults and children in Prisma Dentalwe use soft tissue laser, Epic Laser

Soft Tissue Lasers

The soft tissue lasers use a light wavelength that hemoglobin and water absorb easily. Hemoglobin is the molecule found in blood, which makes soft tissue lasers ideal for gum work. Some soft tissue lasers are diode lasers, which is a type of continuous-wave laser.

These lasers are ideal for cutting into soft tissue and sealing the exposed blood vessels at the same time. This is the reason you don’t bleed very much during laser dentistry and why healing is quicker after laser dentistry. Soft tissue lasers are great for cosmetic procedures because you can begin to see results right away. Soft tissue lasers are used for:

Soft Tissue (Gum) Procedures

  • Cold Sores: Low intensity dental lasers reduce pain associated with cold sores and minimize healing time.
  • Canker sore pain treatments
  • Gummy Smile: Dental lasers can reshape gum tissue to expose healthy tooth structure and improve the  appearance of a gummy smile. Smile Design
  • Treatment of Dental Sensitivity
  • Frenectomy are a simple procedure to release the restrictive tissue for greater movement and range of motion. (tissues that limit and guide the movement of the lip and tongue are known as frenums). Frenums can often be abnormally tight and can restrict proper movement and cause issues with eating, speaking, brushing and sleeping.
  • Teeth Whitening: Low intensity soft tissue dental lasers may be used to speed up the bleaching process associated with teeth whitening.
  • Pain therapy: Reducing and Managing oral and Maxillofacial pain,Migraines
  • Periodontal treatment: Gum disease, gum inflammation
  • Temporomandibular Joint Treatment: Dental lasers may be used to quickly reduce pain and inflammation of the temporomandibular jaw joint.
  • Crown Lengthening: Dental lasers can reshape gum tissue (soft tissue laser) and bone (hard tissue laser) to expose healthier tooth structure. Referred to as crown lengthening, such reshaping provides a stronger foundation for the placement of restorations.
  • Muscle Attachment (Frenula): A laser frenectomy is an ideal treatment option for children who are tongue tied (restricted or tight frenulum) and babies unable to breast feed adequately due to limited tongue movement. A laser frenectomy may also help to eliminate speech impediments.
  • Soft Tissue Folds (Epulis): Dental lasers may be used for the painless and suture-free removal of soft tissue folds often caused by ill-fitting dentures. 
  • Benign Tumors: Dental lasers may be used for the painless and suture-free removal of benign tumors from the gums, palate, sides of cheeks and lips.
  • Biopsies  
  • Nerve Regeneration: Photobiomodulation can be used to regenerate damaged nerves, blood vessels and scars.

Benefits of Laser Dentistry

Dr. Correa choose laser dentistry because of distinct benefits that make the procedures go more smoothly, and also reduce discomfort and healing time for patients.

  • Less post-operatory pain
  • Better post-operatory healing
  • Procedures performed using soft tissue dental laser may not require sutures(stitches)
  • Anesthesia may not be necessary
  • The laser will sterilize the gums, making infection less likely
  • Less damage to gums shortens the healing time
  • Patients lose less blood than traditional surgery. Minimizes bleeding because the high-energy light beam aids in the clotting (coagulation) of exposed blood vessels, thus inhibiting blood loss.
  • Wounds heal faster and tissues can be regenerated.
