Laser dentistry is one of the emerging advanced techniques in dental field. WE Dental offers blade free surgical treatments with advanced laser technology. Unlike using BP blades which causes excessive bleeding, we use lasers which have controlled bleeding and the procedure is less painful.
Hard Tissue Lasers
Lasers used for hard tissues like teeth. Used to remove the infected layers of the carious teeth. Used for root canal treatment for disinfecting the root canal for better healing.
Soft Tissue Lasers
Lasers used for treating soft tissue infections and contouring gums. Soft tissue lasers treatments are as follows:
Curettage is a periodontal procedure done for treating gum infections and deep pocket.Pockets are spaces that are present between the gum and teeth. Gum pockets deepen when there is active infection or irritation. Laser curettage is done to eliminate gum infections and deep pockets. Advanced techniques such as the Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) allow for minimally invasive surgery as an alternative to conventional gum surgery. The appropriate wavelength laser is placed into the gum pocket, disinfected and promotes regeneration of the tissues.
Gingivectomy is the removal of the gums or part of the gums (gingival) to contour the gums. Gum contouring is required in conditions like gum enlargement or over extended gums. Gum enlargement is caused when irritation or infection is present in the gums.
Crown lengthening is a procedure where part of the gums is removed from its original level to 1mm or 2mm based on the biologic width. Crown lengthening is done to create sufficient height in a root canal treated teeth to hold the crown above the prepared teeth, short clinical crowns, irregular crown root ratio.
