Ask your dentist questions about the extent of his or her laser education and training. Make sure that your dentist has participated in educational courses and received training by the manufacturer. Many dental schools, dental associations, and the Academy of Laser Dentistry (ALD) offer dental laser education. The ALD is the profession’s independent source for current dental laser education and credentialing.
They are much quieter than a dental drill, with no whining or vibration.
They are very precise, so there is minimal impact on oral tissues.
They are gentle and generally painless and often require little or no anesthesia.
They can minimize bleeding and swelling and speed healing time.
They reduce the risk of infection by decontaminating the affected areas.
The use of oral lasers can be considered a panacea for the treatment of caries, periodontal disease, dentin hypersensitivity, and various oral mucosal diseases, not only cutting the hard tissues of the teeth quickly and efficiently but also trimming the soft tissues of the oral cavity while achieving a good hemostatic and sealing effect. For caries, the laser can remove decayed hard tissues in a minimally invasive manner; for periodontal disease, the laser can inhibit bacteria and sterilization, remove plaque, calculus, and diseased bone; for dentin hypersensitivity, the laser can seal exposed dentin tubules, block nerve conduction and reduce pain; for oral mucosal disease, the laser can promote wound healing, reduce scarring and remove soft tissue pigmentation, etc.
It not only is "the fastest knife", is "the most gentle knife" the principle of the laser is guided by a ceramic tube laser beam parallel to the surface, but the photon energy is also absorbed by the target group of light - dictating backwardness, rapidly improve the temperature of the organization, under the high temperature, the cell organization internal and external heat gasification of water molecules, leading to the separation of biological tissue, to achieve the effect of fast cutting. Even with this rapid cutting ability, but less bleeding, good sealing, painless and comfortable, so it is the "most gentle knife"!
Most people can use the laser, especially special people such as children, the elderly, women during pregnancy, or patients with dental phobias! If you have poor pain tolerance and low surgical acceptance, laser treatment may be preferred.
The blue dental laser in non-contact mode allows for clean cuts and reduces bleeding in adjacent tissue. Studies have shown that the blue laser diode laser at a wavelength of 450 nm produces efficient tissue vaporization with little thermal damage to adjacent tissue.
The laser allows dentists to treat patients with very little pain, reducing the need for local anesthetics or even eliminating the need for anesthetics altogether. The gentle procedure, which usually does not require post-operative sutures, reduces wound pain and scar formation. Bleeding and swelling can also be avoided after surgery.
Yes, it does. There are basic and advanced training courses, as well as certifications that demonstrate a wide knowledge of skills including theory, safety and laser dentistry technique.
