All About Laser Dentistry 

Sirolase Carbon Dioxide Laser

Why Consider Laser Dentistry?

  • Can release tongue-tie in children and alleviate speech problems.
  • Release low frenum attachment preventing gum recession caused by muscle pull on the gingival tissue.
  • Removes soft tissue overgrowth such as benign lesions on cheeks and gums.
  • Removes gingival overgrowth on teeth.

This treatment is painless and involves no bleeding during or after the treatment. No scarring results from the use of this laser in the cavity.

Reduced Trauma

High-speed drills can cause hairline fractures in teeth that can eventually lead to future dental problems. The gentle action of the laser reduces damage to healthy portions of the tooth, minimising trauma.

– Improved Cavity Fillings: 

Laser cavity preparations increase bond strength of tooth-coloured restorations, for longer lasting fillings.

– Fewer dental visits:

Since you may not need shots or anaesthesia, the dentist may be able to perform cavity preparations in several areas of your mouth, rather than having you come back for multiple visits. In addition, the dentist may be able to perform procedures for which you might have previously required referral to a specialist. 

– Less bleeding and swelling:

Due to its gentle cutting action and coagulating capabilities, the laser performs many procedures on gums and other soft tissues with little or no bleeding and less post-operative swelling.

– Versatility:

The laser was first cleared by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to cut tooth structure in 1998, and has since received more than 60 additional clearances for a wide range of procedures on teeth, gums and bone.
