Laser Dentistry


dental970b10153040_292871340837756_1715989176_nLasers, have  brought about a big revolution in the field of surgical dentistry.

Imagine a visit to a dentist for a surgical procedure, but going through it without any scalpels, needles and stitches!!

The diode dental laser allows us to treat many soft tissue procedures, previously only treatable by traditional periodontal surgery.

Unlike a surgical procedure, laser treatments are less invasive and yet achieve the same results.

The laser treatment is a much more comfortable alternative to the traditional procedures as it requires less anesthesia. Also, the aftermath can be much more pleasant. Following a laser soft tissue treatment, the patient exhibits no discomfort.

-Less bleeding

-no stitches

-less swelling

-painless

– faster healing,

All these make this an excellent alternative for all those who shiver under the scalpel!!!

So now you can have treatments done for periodontal (gum) disease, gum lifts, gum reconstruction and various minor surgeries without fear.

Laser Dentistry is a precise and effective way to perform many dental procedures. If you consider yourself somewhat of an anxious dental patient and are seeking extreme safety and comfort, you should consider looking for EXCLUSIVE LASER CENTRE AT AKSHAY DENTAL CARE.

laser is being extensively used in the following in our clinical PRACTICE:

Sterilization of the root canal

Lasers have been coming on strong in the dental field and I believe they hold great promise as equipment and applications evolve.

frenectomy

A frenectomy is a surgical procedure that removes or loosens a band of muscle tissue that is connected to the lip, cheek or floor of the mouth. It is usually performed under local anesthetic with uneventful healing.

Gingival Depigmentation

Gingival melanin pigmentation occurs in all races of mankind. Although clinical melanin pigmentation does neither present itself as a medical problem nor a disease entity, it is a major esthetic concern for many people, especially Asians. Esthetic gingival depigmentation procedures can be performed in such patients with excellent results. This case series presents a split mouth de-epithelization procedure using popular surgical techniques such as scalpel, bur abrasion or electrosurgery. These techniques were successfully used to treat gingival hyperpigmentation.

Pocket Disinfection

Laser Pocket Disinfection is a full mouth disinfection procedure which can be performed during your scaling and root planing visit, or during your regular recall visit using our newest Periolase NDYAG Laser. This laser has been proven to be sixteen times more effective than other types of dental lasers. It not only destroys the bacteria that live within periodontal pockets, but also reaches bacteria up to 6mm into the surrounding gum tissues. The result is an overall improvement in the quality of the gingival tissues thus decreasing the reoccurrence of the disease. L.P.D. takes only about ten minutes and can be performed without local anesthesia by the dental hygienist.

Operculectomy Opercula_Operculectmies-524x585

The flap of tissue that covers a partially erupted tooth is called the operculum. A partially erupted tooth can be more prone to decay and gum disease. It also causes inflammation of the gums and infections to the adjacent tissues.In order to proceed with the treatment of a partially erupted tooth, the operculum on the tooth should be removed by surgery; this surgery is called the operculectomy. Typically, operculectomy is performed for the treatment of a partially erupted wisdom tooth.

Gingival enlargementcrownlengthening4

Gingival hyperplasia becomes a relatively frequent pathogenic condition during orthodontic treatment. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of diode laser gingivectomy as an adjunct to nonsurgical periodontal treatment in the management of gingival hyperplasia in orthodontic patients. Materials and Methods: Thirty eight orthodontic patients with gingival enlargement due to fixed appliances were divided randomly into two groups. The test group received diode laser gingivectomy as an adjunct to nonsurgical periodontal treatment.

BIOSTIMULATION WITH DENTAL LASER:

biostimulation means use of low level laser energy.

In dentistry biostimulation can be used for :

1.Treatment of recurrent aphthous stomatitis and traumatic ulcers
2.Reduction of oral edema
3.Post-operative analgesia following periodontic, oral surgery, and endodontic procedures
4.Treatment of recurrent intraoral and labial herpes
5.Management of inflammatory conditions such as erosive lichen planus
