Types of Lasers

Soft Tissue Lasers

Most usually, lasers are utilized in procedures including delicate tissues in the mouth like the gums. Lasers can cut and remove delicate gum tissue, making them valuable in procedures, for example, making a trough around the gum for improved visibility and dental access and reshaping the gums for aesthetic purposes. Sometimes lasers are utilized to remove extra gum tissue and discharge excessively tight muscle connections in the mouth or treat oral ulcers and mouth blisters. Laser treatment can also treat periodontal disease, or gum infection, by removing the tainted covering of gum tissue around the teeth and supporting the recovery of sound gum tissue.

Hard Tissue Lasers

Hard tissue lasers are utilized to cut “hard” tissues in the mouth, for example, the teeth. These lasers can help remove tooth decay, will prepare cavities for the filling placement, set up a tooth for a root canal and cut the tooth enamel so a filling can attach to it. Lasers intended for hard tissue purposes may lessen the requirement for anesthesia and diminish the opportunity of overheating portions of the tooth like the pulp, the tooth’s nerve tissue. Be that as it may, hard tissue lasers may also expand the time required for treatment because of the exact idea of laser cutting and may have inconsistent outcomes.


Laser dentistry may help avoid anaesthesia or stitches. Plus the following

  • shorten treatment duration and recovery time
  • minimise bleeding and swelling during surgery
  • reduce scarring of surrounding tissues
  • reduce the risk of infections
  • guide tissue regeneration
  • reduce discomfort and anxiety

Regardless of whether you’re having laser gum surgery or hard tissue surgery, expect a simpler system and a shorter recovery time. Laser dentistry is a helpful answer for some oral and dental issues, regardless of whether serious in nature or simply cosmetic.

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is called cold laser treatment, class III laser therapy, or low-level laser therapy. Laser treatment is an elective treatment for certain kinds of pain, for example, that frequently connected with the knee. Research on laser therapy is a starter, and most guarantors still believe it to be trial. However, a few studies show it can ease pain, including knee pain. It can assist the body with repairing tissue harm brought about by wounds and joint pain or different illnesses. In any case, the principal studies of cold treatment lasers were not controlled clinical studies. Laser treatment is generally new, and scientists don’t yet know whether it has any long-term risks. Most studies have seen short-term impacts, so it is conceivable that laser treatment could trigger longer-term reactions that have not yet been figured it out.
