The High-Performance Laser Dentistry Treatment

Laser therapy, in many cases, is an ideal alternative to surgery. In periodontal therapy and dental implant procedures, laser treatment helps preserve a patient’s tooth anatomy and stimulates and enhances the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Laser incisions seal lymphatic vessels and nerve endings, resulting in less inflammation, swelling, and pain. Often, anesthetic injections are unnecessary. This atraumatic treatment option reduces post-operative discomfort, allows for quicker recovery time without the side effects of conventional procedures, and the absence of noisy drills encourages peace of mind for our patients.

As doctors acquire lasers and master the use of this technology, more procedures are taking place in the dental office in fewer visits, without the need for a specialist.

Dental lasers are great technology ideal for treating gum disease and facilitating dental implant procedures

The superiority of laser dentistry treatment is unparalleled when compared to traditional treatment methods. Lasers easily remove tooth enamel decay, bone, and gum tissue with great precision while leaving the surrounding areas unaffected. This preserves more of the tooth structure and helps to maintain your natural teeth longer. In the case of periodontal pockets, for example, a thin tip is placed in the affected area and the laser energy sterilizes the site, killing the bacteria while leaving the healthy gums and teeth free of infection. As this procedure is minimally invasive, gum tissue re-attaches to teeth faster, and our patients experience faster healing times.

Our laser dentists use lasers to remove calculus and plaque from implant surfaces without damaging the implant fixture or components. They are also used in gingival contouring, or the shaping of the gum line, when seating crowns on implants both for esthetic purposes as well as for patient comfort. Laser-assisted implant placement and recovery significantly reduce overall treatment time.

In more serious instances, lasers can be used to remove failing implants. In such cases, we can remove the implant without damage to the adjacent bone or soft tissue or overheating the surrounding bone, which would cause problems postoperatively. There is no chance of contamination with titanium fragments or filings because we do not cut or grind the implant. Laser energy has bactericidal properties that eliminate pathogenic bacteria from the affected area. After removing the implant and cleaning and disinfecting the site, the laser helps to stimulate the healing of the soft and hard tissues.

At our laser dental clinic in Mission Viejo, we aim to offer top-notch dental services to help our clients improve their oral health conditions.

Laser treatment can also be used for second-stage surgery of submerged implants, as well as for the treatment of peri-implantitis (including the removal of granulomatous tissue from the inflamed surface, bone stimulation, and implant decontamination).

How does it work?

The teeth whitening process makes use of the fact that the laser wave length has an absorption peak in water, which is the major component of dental bleaching gels. Due to its high absorption in water, the laser beam is fully absorbed in the gel and does not penetrate the hard tissue or the pulp, as is the case with other laser-assisted whitening methods.

Faster and More Effective Healing
With laser surgery, treatment times and post-operative healing periods are much shorter. Using Fotona’s lasers in soft-tissue surgery means that there is less need for sutures, and with the laser’s simultaneous disinfection effects, healing is faster with fewer post-operative complications.
