LASERS IN DENTISTRY

A DENTAL LASER is a type of laser designed specifically for use in ORAL SURGERY & DENTISTRY. It is a painless, atraumatic, surgical tool.

DIODE LASER THERAPY is nothing more than shining a high intensity light into the area of interest. The ‘light’ is very intense monochromatic and coherent and is applied with a very specific dose in mind.

DIODE LASERS can also be used for Gum Contouring, Teeth Whitening, Ulcers, Sores and Muscles Pains.

Myofascial pain dysfunction syndrome (MPDS) is the most common cause of facial pains. Patients with MPDS suffer from pain, restricted jaw movement and masticatory muscle tenderness. Psychological factors, occlusion imbalance and para-functional habits are mentioned as its most important underlying causes.

In order to eliminate the signs and symptoms of MPDS, both mental and physical treatments are necessary. Dentists employ different methods such as medicine therapy, occlusal splints, biofeedback, and physiotherapy in the treatment of this condition.1

Modern dentistry utilizes low-level lasers in tissue healing acceleration, pain alleviation, reducing inflammation and physiotherapy in the orofacial region.

Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is a non toxic, non invasive and provides instant relief and reduces healing duration by 30-40% and is very safe if applied by a trained practioner.

THE WAND-
ARE YOU AFRAID OF DENTAL INJECTIONS ??

One of the most common forms of dental phobia is a fear of needles or injections. This type of phobia can make dental treatment very difficult as many types of treatment rely on anesthetic injections to numb the patient. If anesthetic injections cannot be tolerated then your dentist might not be able to start a dental procedure like root canal therapy or extractions or may not be able to perform it free of pain.

The aim of THE WAND is to remove the pain from injections. The flow of anesthetics is computer controlled by the Wand which removes the possibility of the injection being delivered accidentally fast. The wand looks more like a pen than a syringe. Compared to conventional syringes, the needle at its tip is very small and discrete. For patients who experience anxiety simply at the sight of the needle and the thought of what is about to happen, The Wand can help to ease their fears and help them to relax. Also the needle and the syringe is completely dispensable so there is no chance of cross contamination from reuse.
