Laser Dentistry


Laser Depigmentation
Melanin hyper-pigmentation, or "dark gums", is prevalent in certain individuals who have darker complexions. These dark spots can cause an undesirable appearance to otherwise healthy, pink gums. Through dental laser technology, Dr. Anshu can painlessly and accurately remove these problem areas. Laser treatment of dark gums can be done in as little as one office visit and with very quick healing time.

 

 

Sensitive Teeth and Fluoride Treatments

Lasers help people who suffer from sensitive teeth. When combined with a fluoride treatment, certain dental lasers can reduce sensitivity for upto 12 months. The effectiveness of this treatment depends on the type of laser used, and varies according to each individual patient. Dental lasers assist in the uptake of fluoride within teeth. These enhanced laser fluoride treatments are longer lasting and provide better protection for your teeth against decay.The laser procedure takes only ten minutes per session and two sessions are more than sufficient to take care of most of the tooth sensitivity problems. 

 

 

 

Fillings

With laser dentistry we can remove decay, usually without needles, and restore your tooth to its healthy state with a tooth coloured filling. There is no vibration, or numbness and you'll be comfortable the entire treatment. Laser fillings are done in about the same time as conventional fillings but if multiple fillings are required, the laser will reduce the time spent in the dental chair. And multiple regions of the mouth can be done in the one visit. We may still need to use a drill such as in the removal of old amalgam or metal crowns. However, lasers can be used to reduce sensitivity and needles may not be required. Lasers will also selectively target areas of decay and not enamel, minimising the amount of tissue removed.  

 

 

 

Minor Surgery

Surgery to remove swellings and soft and hard tissue growths in and around the mouth can be performed quickly and easily with a dental laser. Minor surgery performed with dental lasers will heal more quickly than conventional treatments. After a laser procedure, the treated area is left sterilised and sealed, and is advanced in the healing process compared to conventional treatments. The removed tissue is then sent for assessment.  

 

 

 

Frenectomies and tongue ties

Many people have lips and tongues that are held too tight by the frenum (that ligament that attaches your lips and your tongue to your gum and jaw bone). This commonly causes a gap (diastema) in between the teeth, usually the front upper teeth and the front lower teeth. It can be the cause of speech problems. Many babies can find it difficult to suckle if they have tied tongues. Lactation specialists, early childhood nurses and speech therapists will often see this. The conventional surgery to release frenums is quite traumatic, painful and can take a long time to heal. With lasers we can precisely and painlessly remove the tissue making it more comfortable for you. There is no bleeding afterwards, no sutures and hardly any discomfort. Children go to school the day after and adults can go back to work the same day. Eating is normal and a baby will suckle immediately after the procedure! It truly is an amazing way to have surgery. 

 

 

 

Root Canal Treatment

Dental lasers are very good at targeting the bacteria which cause infected root canals in your teeth. A quick laser treatment can be very effective in treating the disease and promoting healing. 

 

 

 

Laser Cavity Detection

A low-powered laser can be used to locate tiny pits within tooth enamel that can become cavities. The laser can detect decay early. Once located, the tiny spots on the tooth can be covered with a clear sealant in order to prevent cavities.


 

 

Cavity Removal

Cavity removal can be accomplished with dental lasers. The laser has the ability to remove decay within a tooth, and prepare the surrounding enamel for bonded fillings. The need for anesthesia is greatly reduced or eliminated over the traditional methods.

 

Crown lengthening

Laser crown lengthening is performed around teeth that are broken or have been filled below the gum line and now require treatment with a crown. For us to be able to clean and bond properly to healthy tooth structure, we need to see the tooth clearly and make sure the bonding doesn't interfere with the health of your gum and bone. Previously, this procedure would be performed by a specialist, at a separate visit, and require six to eight weeks of healing before crown preparation. Now, crown lengthening and crown preparation can be performed at the same visit, saving both time and money.

 

 

Gum lifts

During cosmetic procedures we often need to correct the level of the gum before veneers or crowns are made. Your smile is made up of lips, teeth and gums. They should all be in harmony. Usually this procedure is done with scalpels and sutures (especially if bone needs to be adjusted with a drill), and takes six to eight weeks of healing before your veneers or crowns can be made. It is a highly specialised cosmetic procedure that not any dentist can perform. With laser gum lifts, gum and bone around teeth can be reshaped and balanced quickly and painlessly without sutures or swelling. Often the crowns or veneers can be finished at the time of your appointment or within two weeks. 

 

 

 


Periodontal, or gum related care

Periodontics is a specialty in dentistry involving the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of conditions of the surrounding tissues of the teeth (such as the gums) and the maintenance of the health, function and aesthetics of these structures. Gum disease is the single most common cause of tooth loss in adults. Daily good oral hygiene and regular dental cleanings can decrease the risk of developing periodontal disease.

Once periodontal disease has taken hold, the most effective treatment plan options can vary depending on how far the condition has progressed. The first step in keeping the disease from advancing is a deep cleaning and scaling to remove plaque and tartar deposits from the teeth. The root surfaces of the tooth may also be smoothed in order to help the gum tissue reattach itself to the tooth and speed up the healing process.


Treatment Procedure:

  1. Laser light removes bacteria and diseased tissue from the pocket
  2. Ultrasonic scalers and laser energy are used to remove tarter and debris from the root surface
  3. The Laser prepares the root surface to enable healthy gum attachment and aids in sealing the pocket closed

Laser therapy can be more effective in addressing the infectious nature of periodontal disease than traditional methods. The laser can physically interact with the bacteria and kill the organism by the absorption of laser energy. Studies have shown the laser’s ability to reduce 99.4% of the bacteria in a periodontal lesion. In addition, the laser can assist in forming a fibrin clot eliminating post-surgical bleeding and providing a quick and comfortable healing.



Gumline Contouring

Find a Dentist - Gum Contouring"Gummy smiles" are a very common problem, caused by overgrowth of the gum tissue that covers the teeth. This unsightly occurrence can be caused by a variety of things, including heredity, health conditions and even the use of many common high blood pressure medications. A gummy smile will dominate the mouth, making the teeth seem almost secondary in appearance. Healthy and even gum lines are essential to any beautiful smile.

Attractive gums complement and frame your teeth, making your smile look healthier and more attractive. We use a laser to change the look and shape of the gums. The laser actually vaporizes unnecessary and unsightly tissue with unmatched accuracy and effectiveness.

What is left in the place of the overgrown gums is a healthy-looking, well-proportioned smile. The process takes only a few minutes for most, and there is usually very little discomfort. Gum contouring can give you the consistent, even gumline you need for a healthy and attractive smile.

 

 



Soft tissue procedures

Essentially, soft tissue procedures focus on the treatment of problems in any muscles, tendons, tissues, and nerves located in and around the tooth, gum line or jaw musculature. Many of these areas are extremely sensitive to the touch, and as such, soft tissue dental procedures can often be an extremely daunting experience for the patient.


Laser technology has had immediate and beneficial impacts on a variety of soft tissue procedures, including:

  • Cosmetic contouring of the gum tissue (gum lift, reshaping)
  • Frenectomies (frenum is a small muscle attachment under the lips)
  • Periodontal therapy (gum disease)
  • Excision of minor growths
  • Crown lengthening (removing gum and bone to expose more tooth)
  • Apthous ulcer treatment. (The laser takes away the discomfort of the ulcer)

Thanks in large part to advancements in laser dentistry, much of the discomfort during and after soft tissue dental procedures has been minimized or eliminated completely! For example, the vibrations caused by more traditional practices are often the main reason for patient pain, both during and after the procedure. The non-invasive applications of the laser allow the patient a much more comfortable experience, and often only a topical anesthetic gel is used. In many cases, no suturing is involved, which in turn minimizes the time required for the procedure as well as for the patient's recovery.



Curing

By definition, dental curing is the process by which plastic materials inserted in the mouth become rigid and form any of the following: a denture base, filling, impression tray or any other appliance that is used to move teeth or change the shape of the jaw. Lasers have become a vital component of the curing process, as they drastically reduce the time it takes to finish a filling, and create what some researchers have shown to be a stronger restoration. We are applying the various applications of curing to a wide range of procedures. From filling restoration to more complex periodontal procedures such as correcting chipped or misaligned teeth, curing has expedited patient recovery without sacrificing product quality.

 



Lip Repositioning

Sometimes connective tissues attached to the inside of the upper lip do not allow for proper lip movement and expose too much gum tissue above the top row of teeth. By removing specific tissues from inside the upper lip, Dr Anshu can lower the upper lip and create a more aesthetic smile. During the laser surgery, the doctor will remove tissue uniformly to avoid any damage to the patient's muscular movements, such as uneven facial expressions. All of the connective tissues controlling the lip's movement will be shortened significantly, showcasing the teeth instead of excessive gums.
