Benefits Of Laser Treatments

Laser treatment has several benefits. In most instances, it can be carried out without the need for anaesthesia. There is also markedly less bleeding and swelling. Decreased bleeding is due to the ability of the laser to assist in forming a fibrin clot. This eliminates the need for placing sutures (stitches) and wounds heal faster. And there’s more. Lasers kill the harmful bacteria and sterilize the working area thereby reducing the need for antibiotics

The laser energy from dental lasers is delivered through an optical fibre. The fibre is continuously moved along the infected area to burn the infected tissues

Two types of laser beams are used in the treatment. The Nd : YAG is used on the soft tissues like gums and ‘Erbium on the hard tissues like bone and tooth. The number of sittings and timings depend on the severity of the cases

How Gum disease starts?

When the food particles are not cleaned properly even after brushing they struck around and below the gums which leads to the formation of plague after 24 hours and this plague later gets converted in to tartar after 4-5 days. This tartar gets deposited around and below the gums leading to the infection of gum. This infection in later stages comes bone loss below the gums

Why more than 70 % patients neglects gum problem?

Because gum disease is not painful and hence patients neglect it till the damage is caused

How will i know my self that i have gum problem?

  • If there is Bleeding from the gums, this is an acute phase and once it becomes chronic Bleeding will stop and the disease becomes serious
  • If there is bad breathe from the mouth it is because of the gum infection
  • Swollen gums
  • Frequent food impaction below the gums and between the teeth after taking non-veg or corns or coconut. (Note : Those who are using TOOTH PICK after meal should be cautious that they have a gum problem)
  • Even after the above all said symptoms if you don’t recognize the problem it leads to pain while chewing hard food and finally one by one the tooth becomes mobie.

How to get treatment for gum problem

Laser Deep Cleaning

If patient comes with less than 25% of gum infection and bone loss we do laser deep cleaning

Laser Gum Surgery

If the gum infection and bone loss of 25-50% or even upto 60% we do laser gum surgery to remove total infection.

Grafting

There are different types of bone grafts available. Example

How does it works

How this works is that a laser with a rather small amount of energy is directed with great precision at the disease portions of the gum. The laser then removes the tissue which is diseased, thus eliminating infection. This whole process is done without any type of incision. This is so because the laser immediately cauterizes (use of heat to close an area to prevent or stop bleeding) the wound, resulting in little to no bleeding. The use of the laser is so effective that the patient only experiences minor discomfort making anesthesia unnecessary

Recovery

Since laser gum surgery is so effective the recovery time is less than 24 hours where traditional gum surgery requires 2-4 weeks of recovery time. In fact the lasers for this surgical use where created by dentists and receive extensive clinical trials before receiving Federal Drug Administration approval
