Laser Surgical Treatment

Laser dental treatments are carried out using a concentrated beam of light, which can be used to sterilise areas of infection in the mouth, reduce gummy smiles, replace the need for drilling to remove decayed parts of the teeth, and for tooth whitening.

What can lasers do?

There are several areas of dentistry in which lasers can be used. These include:

  1. Removal of Oral Growths.

    Waterlase can be used to remove growths or excess tissue in a patient's mouth, including excess gum tissue over an unerupted tooth or fibromas.

  2. Prevent Gum Recession.

    Muscle connections that can cause gums to recede can be taken care of with the Waterlase with little discomfort.

  3. Treat Periodontal Disease.

    Waterlase can be used to remove debris and bacteria between the patient's teeth and gums that can cause bleeding, gum recession and even loss of teeth. Waterlase has been shown to reduce bacteria and may even stimulate gum tissue growth.

  4. Faster Healing.

    The Waterlase can perform many procedures on gum tissue with little or no bleeding and less swelling and pain.

  5. Frenectomy

    ( laser lip- or tongue-tie release). Waterlase can be used to remove a small fold of tissue that prevents an organ in the body from moving too far.

  6. Apicectomy.

    Waterlase can be used to remove inflammatory periapical tissue.

Advantages of laser dentistry

  1. Reduced bleeding compared with traditional dental treatment.
  2. Some gum work does not require stitches.
  3. Faster healing time.
  4. Anxious patients often feel more relaxed without the need for drills, needles etc.
  5. Reduced risk of infection, because the laser treatment sterilises the affected area.
  6. Reduced discomfort and reduced need for anaesthesia in some procedures.
  7. Improves the success rate of treatment including root canals, particularly for complex root systems.
