Laser treatment – painless treatment

laser treatment

Pain reduced or painless

Numerous treatments can now be carried out almost painlessly with state-of-the-art equipment that was previously associated with inconvenience:

  • caries diagnosis
  • gentle surgery
  • Sterilization of root canals / endodontics
  • Sterilization of periodontal pockets during periodontitis treatment
  • Aphthous and herpetic therapy
  • and much more.

The laser belongs .

. to the biggest technical innovations of dentistry in recent years.

What advantages does a dental laser offer??

What gives the laser an advantage over conventional treatment methods is its contact, vibration and painless handling.

This small but subtle difference in operation allows minimally invasive procedures and makes the treatment more comfortable for the patients.

With state-of-the-art equipment, painless or painless treatments can be performed that were previously associated with discomfort:

  • caries diagnosis
  • gentle surgery
  • Sterilization of root canals / endodontics
  • Sterilization of periodontal pockets during periodontitis treatment
  • Aphthous and herpetic therapy
  • and much more.

laser therapy

The dental laser therapy (laser stands for "Light Amplification by Stimulated emission of Radiation") has found its way into many areas of dentistry.

Lasering uses a bundled high-energy light that has different effects on different types of tissue. The light of the laser is characteristically monochromatic (waves of exactly the same length, frequency and energy), coherent (all waves are in the same phase) and parallel

This results in a radiation with a very high energy density, which concentrates in a confined space and therapeutically for the removal of hard tissue (bone, tooth substance), for cutting in soft tissue (eg gums), as well as for germ reduction in the tissue (disinfection or sterilization of the Tissue, for example in root or gum treatment) can be used.

The mode of action of the laser results in its use in:

  • Conservative dentistry for germ reduction and caries removal
  • Surgery for coagulating (hemostatic) incision and bone removal
  • Endodontics for root canal sterilization and root tip resection (surgical removal of the root tip)
  • implantology for the treatment of peri-implantitis (inflammation of the implant environment)
  • Periodontal therapy for germ reduction and laser-assisted open curettage (relief of tooth surfaces of calculus in the periodontal pocket and removal of inflammatory tissue)
  • aesthetic dentistry for laser-assisted bleaching (laser whitening, whitening teeth)

We use the laser in the following areas

Root canal treatment (endodontics)

The inflamed or dead tissue in the root canals is interspersed with a variety of bacteria, these bacteria lead in the area around the root tip to inflammation. During treatment, the laser penetrates deeply into the side canals and reduces the germ count there by up to 90%. This significantly increases the chance of getting the tooth.

Surgery and implantology

In surgery, the laser is almost bleeding-free cuts possible and the tissue then healed according to experience almost scar-free. The treatment is also much less painful. Abraded bone is immediately sterilized and usually heals without complications. Painful swelling after surgery is reduced to a minimum.

For the treatment of inflammation on implants (peri-implantitis), experience has shown that the laser therapy can be used to expose the implant without bleeding and scarring and to completely cure the implant.

Gum treatment (periodontics)

Similar to root canal treatment, the removal of bacteria in the diseased periodontal pocket plays a crucial role in the healing process. The laser beam sterilizes the bag after previous mechanical cleaning and thus optimizes the treatment result.

filling treatment

With the laser, only diseased hard tooth substance (caries) can be selectively removed. Adjacent areas are not heated, but at the same time sterilized – this experience causes little pain and ensures that no bacteria remain under the filling.
