Enhancing Dental Care with Laser Technology


You may have come across the term “Laser Dentistry,” which involves using laser technology to address various dental concerns affecting both soft and hard tissues. This innovative approach has truly transformed the dental experience, offering a level of precision and comfort that was previously unheard of.

Here at Maeoris Dental, we understand the importance of providing our patients with the best possible care. That’s why we’ve invested in cutting-edge laser equipment to ensure your comfort and satisfaction throughout your treatment journey.

In this blog, we want to take the time to explore the different types of lasers used in dentistry, how they’re applied depending on the type of tissue being treated, and what you can expect during your laser procedure. We also want to highlight the many benefits that laser dentistry can offer.

Tailored treatments for hard and soft tissues

Laser Dentistry on Soft Tissues

You may already have some familiarity with the typical procedures associated with laser dentistry, such as teeth whitening, addressing hypersensitivity, and repairing tooth damage. It’s important to note that treatments can vary depending on the type of tissue being targeted, whether it’s hard or soft tissue.

When it comes to hard tissues like teeth, lasers are primarily utilised for tasks such as cutting through bone or extracting a portion of a tooth for other procedures or removal purposes. They can also be instrumental in managing tooth sensitivity and detecting cavities.

On the other hand, lasers used on soft tissues serve a different purpose. They work to seal blood vessels and can be employed in modifying crowns, reshaping gums, and even assisting in limited gum treatments.

Understanding these distinctions can help you feel more informed and prepared for any dental procedures involving laser technology. 

LASER in dentistry: Advancements and applications

Laser technology, an acronym for ‘Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation,’ made its debut in dentistry back in 1960. Over the past two decades, extensive research has been conducted, significantly enhancing the efficiency and precision of dental treatments.

Today, several prominent types of lasers are utilised:

Carbon dioxide Laser: This laser’s high affinity to water allows for rapid soft tissue removal, expediting procedures.

Erbium Laser: With its two distinct wavelengths, this laser proves versatile, addressing both hard and soft tissues effectively.

Diode Laser: Unique for its wavelengths absorbed by tissue pigment, such as melanin and hemoglobin, providing tailored treatment options.

These advancements underscore our commitment to delivering state-of-the-art dental care, ensuring our patients benefit from the latest technologies for optimal treatment outcomes.

Preparing for your Laser Treatment: What to expect 

We’re here to guide you through the process of preparing for a laser treatment and what you can anticipate during and after the procedure. Once your dentist has identified the issue and carefully determined the best course of treatment for your condition, here’s what you can expect:

Reduced Bleeding: Laser treatments typically result in less bleeding compared to other dental procedures, promoting a smoother recovery process.

Minimal Discomfort: During and after the treatment, you can expect minimal to no pain or discomfort, enhancing your overall experience and comfort.

Drill-Free Procedure: Unlike traditional methods, laser treatments do not involve drilling, contributing to a gentler approach to dental care.

Lower Risk of Infection: Post-treatment, the likelihood of developing an infection is significantly reduced, providing peace of mind and promoting a faster recovery.

Minimal Swelling: You’re unlikely to experience significant swelling following your laser treatment, allowing you to return to your daily activities with minimal disruption.

At our practice, your well-being and comfort are our top priorities. We’re dedicated to providing you with a positive and stress-free experience, ensuring that you feel supported every step of the way.
