Dental Laser in Mexico, an Innovative Technique to Cure Dental Diseases
If you experience oral pain caused by gum disease, tooth decay or by lesions you don’t have to fear the dentist. Dental laser is a new edge treatment that we recommend you investigate.
What is Dental Laser
In the early 90s a new technique for oral surgery was created. Laser is a device that emits a beam of light through optical amplification. The term “laser” is an acronym for "light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation". With the advancements in science and medicine, dentists sought a way to incorporate this device to oral treatments.
A Dental Laser can be used to treat oral diseases; if you have tooth decay, your dentist can adjust the beam of light and remove the plaque, but if the damage is severe a filling could be necessary. The laser will provide a clean area, allowing your dentist to prepare your teeth for the filling.
When used for dental procedures, the laser acts as a cutting instrument or a vaporizer of tissue that it comes in contact with. When used for teeth whitening, the laser acts as a heat source and amplifies the effect of tooth-bleaching agents. When used filling treatment, the laser strengthens the bond between the tooth and the filling.
„Dental laser is an exciting new form of dental technology that’s changing the way dentists and patients view dentistry. In the right hands, dental lasers are extremely safe. They represent an innovative and more precise technology for specific hard and soft tissue applications. If you choose a laser dentist, you may find that you feel more comfortable during your treatments. For those who consider traveling to Mexico for dental laser treatment I reccommend Sani Dental Group in Los Algodones, the only dental clinic in the region with the prestigious International Patient Services Certification by the MTA, and a Member of the ADA (American Dental Association)”, said D.D.S. Enrique Arturo Jiménez Alvarez from Sani Dental Group, one of the largest dental clinics in Los Algodones, where extensively trained doctors are specialized in Dental Implants, Laser Dentistry, Oral Surgery, Cosmetic Dentistry, Orthodontics, Endodontics, Periodontics, among other dental treatments patients may need.
Laser procedures are often more precise as the thin narrow beam can concentrate on one particular area. Lasers can be used as a safe and effective treatment for a wide range of dental procedures and are often used in conjunction with other dental instruments. And there's no "whirling" sound of the drill. In fact, lasers don't make any sound at all, so you don’t have to fear! Laser surgery is an excellent option for those who suffer from dental anxiety.
How is Dental Laser used
Patients whom suffer from gum disease have trouble eating, speaking and feel constant pain. The dentist can use the laser to kill bacteria in your teeth and reshape your gums if necessary. If damage has been done and a root canal is needed, the dental laser will help feel less pain than you experience when using a traditional drill.
The in-office teeth whitening option is a procedure in which your dentist applies a whitening agent onto your teeth, then through the use of heat, a special UV light, or laser you will see the result. This whitening technique is one of the most efficient procedures available today, providing results in only 30-60 minutes.
Performing a Biopsy
A dental laser can be used as a cutting instrument to remove small pieces of tissue. If a patient suffers from oral cancer, the dentist can use the laser to perform a biopsy. Canker sores can also be treated with laser. A canker sore is a small ulcer that appears in the mouth; by using the dental laser, your dentist can remove the causes of your oral discomfort.
Diagnosis of Caries
Laser fluorescence may be a useful adjunct in the detection of early enamel caries. The level of energy used in this application is benefic and poses little risk to the patient.
Dental lasers can reshape gum tissue (soft tissue laser) and bone (hard tissue laser) to expose healthier tooth structure. The procedure is known as crown lengthening, and such reshaping provides a stronger foundation for the placement of restorations.
Muscle Attachment (Frenula)
A laser frenectomy may help to eliminate speech impediments. It is also an ideal treatment option for children who are tongue tied (tight frenulum) and babies unable to breast feed adequately due to limited tongue movement.
Soft Tissue Folds
Dental lasers may be used for the suture-free removal of soft tissue folds often caused by ill-fitting dentures.
If the dental laser is as safe as other dental instruments if used according to accepted practices by trained practitioners. However, when your dentist performs a laser procedure, you will be asked to wear special eyeglasses to protect your eyes from the laser. Ask your dentist questions about the extent of his/her laser training, and make sure that he/she has participated in educational courses.
What are the benefits of Dental Laser
Compared to the traditional dental drill, lasers may cause less pain, so the need for anesthesia is reduced. Also, the patients don’t feel as uncomfortable as they me be with the use of the dental drill. Lasers minimize bleeding and swelling during soft tissue treatments by cauterizing an open wound, remove muscle attachments that limit proper movement, remove overgrown tissues caused by certain medications, aid in the treatment of gum disease, help treat infections in root canals, speed up tooth whitening procedures and more. Also, during cavity removal teeth health can be better preserved. Laser procedures can be more precise, and can reduce symptoms and healing times associated with traditional therapies. Patients should still keep in mind that lasers can't be used in many commonly performed dental procedures, and that laser treatments tend to be more expensive.
