DENTAL LASER CARE

    Laser dentistry

    Laser dentistry is a precise and effective way to perform many dental procédures, and the dentist's ability to control power output and the duration of exposure of the laser beam, can improve dental procedures on the tissue (whether gum, bone or tooth structure).

    If you consider yourself somewhat of an anxious dental patient and are seeking extreme safety and comfort, you might consider looking for dentists who have incorporated laser dentistry techniques into their practices and treatments. Thanks to it’s five new génération lasers, Dental laser care, is the first and the only dental office in Brussels which is fully equipied with laser instruments allowing to perform every dental procedures.

    Benefits of Laser Dentistry ?

    Here are some of the major benefits associated with 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.

    Application of Laser Dentistry



    The application of lasers in dentistry opens the door for dentists to perform a wide variety of dental procedures they otherwise may not be capable of performing. Dentists using lasers in dentistry have become adept at incorporating the state-of-the-art precision technology into a number of common and not-so-common procedures.

  • Hard Tissue (Tooth, bone) Laser Dentistry Procedures

    • Cavity Detector : Low intensity soft tissue dental lasers may be used for the early detection of cavities by providing a reading of the by-products produced by tooth decay.
    • Dental Fillings / Tooth Preparation: Hard tissue dental lasers may eliminate the need for a local anesthetic injection and the traditional turbine dental drill. Lasers used in dental filling procedures are capable of killing bacteria located in a cavity, potentially leading to improved long term tooth restorations. However, dental lasers are not appropriate for the replacement of amalgam fillings, onlays or crowns
    • Tooth Sensitivity: Dental lasers may be used to seal tubules (located on the root of the tooth) that are responsible for hot and cold tooth sensitivity.

      The pain associated with tooth sensitivity may occur constantly or intermittently. Intermittent tooth sensitivity can occur while ingesting hot or cold food or beverages, or when cold air hits the teeth. In some cases, tooth sensitivity pain is mistaken for root damage.
  • Causes and Effects of Tooth Sensitivity


    What exactly causes tooth sensitivity? Aging accounts for some tooth sensitivity. As we age, enamel (the outer tooth surface) naturally wears down, exposing the dentin (the initial inner tooth surface) and causing sensitivity. But tooth sensitivity also results from a variety of other factors, including:

    • Gum recession.
    • Acidy liquids (such as soda) that cause enamel wear and dentin exposure.
    • Tooth grinding, in which case all teeth feel sensitive.
    • Brushing teeth too hard, which may cause enamel loss and dentin exposure.
    • Root nerve damage, (periodontitis), or a chipped or fractured tooth.
  • Soft Tissue (Gum) Laser Dentistry Procedures

    • Crown Lengthening : Dental lasers can reshape gum tissue (soft tissue laser) and bone (hard tissue laser) to expose healthier tooth structure. Referred to as crown lengthening, such reshaping provides a stronger foundation for the placement of restorations.
    • Gummy Smile : Dental lasers can reshape gum tissue to expose healthy tooth structure and improve the appearance of a gummy smile.
    • Muscle Attachment (Frenula): A laser frenectomy is an ideal treatment option for children who are tongue tied (restricted or tight frenulum) and babies unable to breast feed adequately due to limited tongue movement. A laser frenectomy may also help to eliminate speech impediments.
    • Soft Tissue Folds (Epulis): Dental lasers may be used for the painless and suture-free removal of soft tissue folds often caused by ill-fitting dentures.
  • Other Laser Dentistry Applications

    • Benign Tumors : Dental lasers may be used for the painless and suture-free removal of benign tumors from the gums, palate, sides of cheeks and lips.
    • Cold Sores : Low intensity dental lasers reduce pain associated with cold sores and minimize healing time.
    • Nerve Regeneration : Photobiomodulation can be used to regenerate damaged nerves, blood vessels and scars.
    • Teeth Whitening : Low intensity soft tissue dental lasers may be used to speed up the bleaching process associated with teeth whitening.
    • Temporomandibular Joint Treatment :Dental lasers may be used to quickly reduce pain and inflammation of the temporomandibular jaw joint.
