The use of laser in dentistry has become a main therapeutic option thanks to its qualities and therapeutic benefits. The laser favorably optimizes the conventional treatment and offers better results; however, few practitioners use it. At Khelil’s Dental Center, we have this modern technology that has revolutionized the field of dentistry. The laser gives us the advantage of providing precise, efficient and painless care to our patients.
It is a technology that uses a light beam projected by a dental laser. The wavelength indicates the absorption of laser radiation in dental tissue (soft tissue and hard tissue). The laser is applied very precisely to the area to be treated, it delivers pulses of energy in the form of a small, highly concentrated beam of light in a continuous manner. The laser is a useful device for the treatment of these tissues, it is less invasive and promotes good healing after the operation. The laser works on soft tissue by making incisions in these tissues and sealing off the blood vessels in the area, which minimizes bleeding during the procedure. The laser eliminates all bacteria present on the treated area.
This innovative technology treats several dental problems, including:
Decays treatment, the laser can be used for caries treatment and prepare the tooth to receive the filling.
Gingival treatment, the laser can perform Gingivoplasty and Gingivectomy by reshaping the gum tissue, it gives a more uniform appearance to the smile. It also helps to treat gingivitis and periodontitis which develop by the proliferation of bacteria on soft tissues. It kills all of these bacteria and reduces tissue inflammation.
Treatment of ulcers, the laser can treat mouth ulcers with little post-operative pain. Ulcers can be painful and unpleasant.
Teeth whitening, the laser can speed up the tooth whitening procedure, it increases the activity of the particles in the whitening gel.
Biopsy, the laser can be used to take a soft tissue biopsy by removing a small piece for examination.
