What is Laser Dentistry?

Laser dentistry involves the use of specialised dental lasers to perform a wide range of dental procedures more effectively and gently than traditional methods. These lasers deliver energy in the form of light, allowing for precise cutting, removal, or shaping of tissue.

Benefits of Laser Dentistry

Less Pain, More Comfort

Many laser dentistry procedures can be performed with little to no discomfort, often eliminating the need for anaesthesia.

Minimal Bleeding and Swelling

Laser treatments cause less trauma to the gums, resulting in reduced bleeding and swelling during and after procedures.

Quicker Recovery

The precision of laser therapy promotes faster healing, allowing patients to return to their daily routines sooner.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, laser dentistry is extremely safe when performed by trained and experienced professionals like Dr. Justin Tan and the team at Village Dental Care. Dental lasers are precisely controlled, allowing for specific, targeted treatments that minimise damage to surrounding tissues. Additionally, the risk of infection is reduced due to the sterilising effect of the laser.

Laser dentistry can be used to treat a variety of dental issues, including gum disease, tooth decay, hypersensitivity, gum reshaping, and teeth whitening. It is also effective for performing biopsies, removing soft tissue lesions, and treating infections in root canals.

One of the significant advantages of laser dentistry is the reduction in pain and discomfort associated with dental procedures. Many patients report feeling little to no pain during laser treatments, and in many cases, anaesthesia may not be required. This makes laser dentistry an excellent option for patients who are anxious about dental visits.

Laser teeth whitening uses a bleaching gel applied to the teeth, which is then activated by a dental laser. The laser energy enhances the bleaching process, allowing for faster, more effective whitening results compared to traditional methods. Patients can often achieve several shades of improvement in just one session.

Laser dentistry has few side effects, most of which are minor and temporary. Some patients may experience slight sensitivity or discomfort in the treated area, but this usually subsides quickly. The risk of complications is significantly lower compared to traditional surgical methods, making it a preferred choice for many dental procedures.

The longevity of laser dental treatments depends on the type of procedure and the patient’s oral hygiene practices. For example, the results of laser teeth whitening can last for several months to a few years, depending on dietary habits and oral care. Laser-treated gum reshaping or periodontal therapy outcomes are long-lasting, especially with proper oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups.
