What is Laser Dentistry?
Laser dentistry is a groundbreaking dentistry field applicable to various routine and complex dental treatments. It blends science and innovation to redefine the patient’s experience at the dentist.
Dental lasers produce a very narrow and intense beam of light energy to perform procedures on hard tissues (tooth enamel) and soft tissues (gums). Unlike traditional dental tools, lasers offer unparalleled precision, allowing dentists to target problematic areas with minimal discomfort and reduced healing time for patients.
This means less pain and anxiety during procedures and reduced need for sutures in soft tissue operations. Furthermore, the sterilizing effect of the laser reduces the risk of infection.
In our dental clinic, we use Kavo Key laser, an ErYag type of laser that works on both hard and soft tissues.
Types of Laser Dentistry
Each type of laser used in dental procedures has a unique application. Our dentists have received extensive specialized training to be able to decide on the type of laser that should be used and achieve the desired outcome.
Hard Tissue Lasers
Common uses include:
Soft Tissue Lasers
They have a wavelength that’s absorbed by water and hemoglobin, making them ideal for gum work. They can seal blood vessels and nerve endings, ensuring that many soft tissue procedures are far less painful. Uses include:
Often used in soft tissue treatments, including teeth whitening.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is laser treatment good for your teeth?
Yes, laser dental treatment offers advantages such as greater precision, less pain, quicker healing, and decreased discomfort during dental procedures.
What are the disadvantages of laser dentistry?
The disadvantages of laser dentistry may be:
- Higher cost compared to traditional dental techniques
- Limited availability in certain dental practices
- Ineffectiveness of certain dental materials, such as amalgam fillings
- Eye hazards if proper protective measures are not taken
- Lack of training and experience among some dental professionals
How much does laser dentistry cost?
Laser dentistry procedures often come at a higher price than traditional techniques due to the advanced technology involved. However, the benefits and improved outcomes justify the investment.
Is dental laser painful?
Dental laser procedures are typically less painful compared to traditional techniques. Lasers can minimize discomfort during and after treatment, leading to a more comfortable experience for patients.
How long does teeth lasering last?
The duration of the effects of teeth lasering varies depending on individual oral health, maintenance, and adherence to good oral hygiene practices. Regular dental check-ups play a crucial role in maintaining long-lasting results.
Can lasers be used for tooth extraction?
Lasers are not typically used for the actual extraction of a tooth. Instead, traditional tooth extraction methods, such as forceps and elevators, remain the standard.
However, lasers can be used in oral surgery for procedures adjacent to extraction or to aid in some surgical aspects. For instance, lasers might help remove or reshape gum tissue, manage bleeding during a surgical procedure, or treat an infected root canal during an apicoectomy.
Lasers offer the benefits of reduced bleeding, minimized bacterial infections, and often a faster recovery time compared to traditional surgical methods.
How does a laser fix a cavity?
In laser cavity treatment, the laser is used to precisely remove the decayed tooth material, create an ideal preparation for the filling, and sterilize the area to reduce the risk of future infections. The cavity is subsequently filled with an appropriate dental material.
Is laser filling permanent?
Laser fillings, like traditional dental fillings, are designed to be long-lasting but not entirely permanent. Their longevity depends on the material used, the location of the filling, and the patient’s oral hygiene habits. While laser techniques can enhance precision, no filling is guaranteed to last a lifetime. Regular dental check-ups are crucial to monitor the condition of your dental fillings.
