Plaque, tooth decay, and gum disease are dental issues that can result in several health issues. However, dental treatment for these conditions can be invasive and painful.
Laser in dentistry provides an alternative solution for dental patients who want the best care possible without having to endure painful or invasive procedures like cavity fillings or root canals.
LASER stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. With a high-powered dental laser that releases laser light energy, your dentist can remove infected tissues with minimal discomfort and pain. Traditional dental procedures involve manually extracting tissues using scalpels. Laser dentistry allows you to avoid more invasive procedures that may require general anaesthesia or lengthy recovery periods.

All lasers work by delivering laser energy in the form of light. Lasers are used for cutting and vaporising tissues they come into contact with in laser dentistry.
Depending on the form of treatment, dentists use hard tissue or soft tissue lasers. If the treatment requires it, some will use both types of laser. Hard tissue lasers have the ability to pierce through tooth structure. The wavelengths of their light are absorbed by the combination of water and minerals in teeth. These lasers are commonly used to prepare or shape teeth for dental bonding, replace worn-down dental fillings, and remove some tooth structure. Lasers used for soft tissue use light wavelengths that hemoglobin and water can easily absorb. Soft tissue lasers are ideal for gum treatments since hemoglobin is found in red blood cells. They are perfect for cutting soft tissue while also sealing any exposed blood vessels. This is why you don’t bleed as much when you have laser dentistry and why you recuperate faster afterwards.
Dentists use laser dentistry because of the distinct oral health care benefits it provides:
- Laser dentistry is minimally invasive and relatively painless.
- Soft tissue lasers could decrease the need for sutures.
- A laser promotes the clotting of blood in soft tissues, so bleeding is minimised.
- Some laser procedures do not require anaesthesia.
- The laser beam sterilises the area, reducing the risk of bacterial infections.
- It may cause less damage to the gums, teeth, and surrounding tissues.
- Healing time is faster after a laser procedure.
- Dental anxiety in anxious patients is reduced.
Laser dentistry poses relatively few risks. The correct wavelength or power level can prevent tissue damage. However, finding a qualified health practitioner is crucial. Potential risks and complications of dental lasers include:
- Hard lasers can sometimes cause tooth pulp damage.
- There is a risk of gum injury.
- Laser root canals can cause pulp damage.
