Our clinic offers a unique type of service using modern dental equipment. This is «Key Laser 3+” device, developed by German company «KaVo». The beginning of laser application in dental care dates back to 1960. And it was at that time when doctors started talking about its objective benefits. Since then the success of laser technology in surgery, ophthalmology and cosmetic medicine has been widely known, while its use in dentistry has been very limited due to the lack of an instrument that would work equally effectively not only on soft, but also on solid tissues.
So, what are the advantages of treating a carious tooth with a laser as opposed to a standard dental unit?
- Laser therapy can be performed without anesthesia in 80% of cases without feeling pain.
- Laser removes only the tissues damaged by a pathological process (using a unique “feedback” facility), if in the process it gets to the healthy tissue, the work is automatically stopped.
- Laser treatment does not cause cracking of the enamel, pulp.
- Discomfort or any side effects that can occur with a dental bur.
At present periodontal problems have become a very urgent issue for many people. Because white teeth do not mean a healthy mouth in the presence of red mucosa, bleeding gums, tartar and bad breath. It is important not only to remove the inflammatory process, but also to understand and eliminate its root causes.
The main problem lies in the need to fully remove supra- and subgingival tartar, granulation, as well as in the sterilization of periodontal pockets. Of course, all this can be achieved only in the presence of a professional doctor periodontist, special tools, sharpened at a certain angle and to a certain degree, and special surgical and medical support. In addition, such treatment is long and not always effective. Try to recall what instruments your periodontist once used, and for how long you used to feel discomfort, moreover a real problem with the pain and inability to chew properly.
Laser therapy considerably simplifies all the previous manipulations. After several procedures, you will feel significant changes in the oral cavity. Try it and see for yourself.
To date, no less important are the problems of herpes and aphthae that occur in the oral cavity. People who often have these problems are familiar with the discomfort caused by the disease. The laser instantly relieves the pain and removes herpes at the place of origin once and for all.
Special attention should be given to the laser in dental surgery. The word “surgery” is usually associated with a cut, blood, and perhaps sutures, which are inserted at the end of each operation. The laser simplifies a lot of steps. For example, such popular manipulation as lip or tongue bridle (frenulum) excision requires a minimum of equipment and is done without blood or wound suture. In pediatric dentistry, it is admired not only by parents, but also by young patients.
The laser has its purpose in aesthetic dentistry, too. For example, remodelling gums (if we want to align the edges of the dental cervixes in the aesthetic zone) is performed quickly and aesthetically; unlike the scalpel, the laser can make any lines without turns.
Laser tooth whitening is a well-known and very popular procedure in dentistry, but unlike classical whitening, our laser whitens each tooth individually, not a group of teeth at a time. It helps to control the colour, if it goes about fillings and crowns.
The procedure of removing mucosa pigment is also unique. Bright pink mucosa looks much better than brown or blue one (it concerns healthy gums).
A little more about unpleasant moments that we may experience during the eruption of wisdom teeth. We want to preserve the tooth in the mouth, but the mucous membrane over it is so thick and painful that we are often depressed by the question: What shouldl we do? Shall we get rid of the tooth or endure the pain still longer? However, if there are no direct indications for the extraction, we apply a small anesthesia and take away everything that bothers our tooth. It can also be done with the scalpel, but with the laser it is much more efficient.
Implantology is the procedure related to the restoration of a missing tooth with an implant. The problem is not only to set an implant, but also to make it durable. Prevention of inflammation in the tissues surrounding the implant is also achieved with the laser. The laser is also highly effective when the inflammation is already present around the implant. Peri-implantitis treatment is a unique and effective procedure.
So, the laser is effective in:
- Denlal therapy;
- Dental surgery;
- Cosmetic dentistry.
We hope this information will help you to better understand on what our methods are based, and make the right choice.
