What is a laser and how does it work?
A laser is an instrument that produces a very narrow, intense beam of light energy. When laser light comes in contact with tissue, it causes a reaction. The light produced by the laser can remove or shape tissue.Dentists use lasers for more than 20 Years to treat a number of dental problems. These lasers are different from the cold lasers used in other fields. State-of-the-art laser treatment makes for a significantly more pleasant experience than previously possible. Our clinic is equipped with the latest laser technology.

Dental Treatment with laser
. The laser can be used in a number of different ways, i.e.
• Infected tissue can be vaporised using laser, without damaging the tooth enamel
• necks of teeth that are sensitive to cold / hot can be “sealed” without any pain at all
• herpes or mouth ulcers heal faster if radiated gently.
• targeted disinfection and germ reduction for treating gum diseases or root canal treatments
• optimises the success of the overall treatment
• the tiny grooves in children’s teeth can be disinfected without “drilling” before they are sealed
• thorough removal of any remaining caries
• preserve any teeth that are at risk
• there is no need for scalpels or stiches because the laser closes any blood vessels immediately
Benefits of Laser Dentistry
• Procedures performed using soft tissue dental lasers may not require sutures (stitches).
• Certain laser dentistry procedures do not require anesthesia.
• Laser dentistry minimizes bleeding because the high-energy light beam aids in the clotting (coagulation) of exposed blood vessels, thus inhibiting blood loss.
• Bacterial infections are minimized because the high-energy beam sterilizes the area being worked on.
• Damage to surrounding tissue is minimized.
• Wounds heal faster and tissues can be regenerated.
Are Dental Laser Safe?
If the dental laser is at least as safe as other dental instruments. However, just as you wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from prolonged exposure to the sun, when your dentist performs a laser procedure, you will be asked to wear special eyeglasses to protect your eyes from the laser
