Dental Laser Applications and Uses - An Overview

Dental Laser Applications and Uses - An Overview - Cold Laser Supplies

Cold laser is highly suited for comfortable and extremely effective use in over 24 dental applications. There are 325 positive studies done by 81 universities from 37 different countries showing from 80 to 95% success using Cold Laser Therapy on over 24 different dental procedures. 

Cold lasers using the infrared wavelength (from 875 – 905nm, with minimum power densities of 100 – 500mW) are preferred for dental applications because they are capable of penetrating into hard tissue and killing bacteria and infectious matter. 

Studies have shown the following common dental conditions respond positively to Cold Laser Therapy (LLT): 

  • Aphthae ulcers (canker sores) 
  • Bleeding – postoperative bleeding control 
  • Dentitio dificilis – pain around the coronal tissue of either primary or permanent teeth 
  • Endodontics – root canal – used to reduce pain associated with root canal 
  • Extraction – used before and after to control bleeding, pain, and speed healing 
  • Gingivitis (bleeding of the gums) 
  • Implantology – reduces inflammation, speeds healing 
  • Lip wounds 
  • Mucositis associated with cancer medications 
  • Nausea– used prior to taking impressions to prevent gagging 
  • Nerve injury 
  • Edema (swelling) 
  • Prosthetics – denture sores 
  • TMJ/TMD (Temporomandibular joint and associated muscle

Why should a person or dentist consider using cold lasers?  

Patients benefit from a natural, painless, non-invasive method of treatment. Sometimes people buy their own laser and do treatments at home. More frequently Dentists invest in therapeutic lasers to enhance their practice by improving clinical outcomes, easier, faster and more efficiently. The practice will enjoy an enhanced image in the community and the financial benefits will increase the bottom line. Remember, patients are becoming increasingly aware of laser use in Medicine and Dentistry. Improvements in patient care and laser technology cause patients to seek out non-invasive methods of dental pain relief, tissue healing, gum healing, root canal issues and relief from TMJ/TMD.

Do lasers in dentistry pay for themselves? 

It is easy to earn additional practice income with a laser, if the Dentist has a clear vision, specific practice goals and properly integrates the laser that is well suited for his or her practice. For most Dentists a timely ROI is inevitable.

Can Hygienists use lasers? 
There are at least 37 states where hygienists can use lasers.

To date, numerous laser manufacturing companies have developed innovative laser and light therapy medical devices for many applications. Laser and light therapy, called phototherapy, cold laser therapy (CLT), low level laser therapy (LLLT) and most recently Photobiomodulation, is a relatively new technology in North America, having only received FDA approval since 2002. Discover Lasers LLC has over 17 years experience providing numerous laser therapy products to the consumer and professional market.

There are over 325 dental research studies reporting positive effects of laser therapy in more than 90% of the trials. Listed are a few of the indications for laser therapy in Dentistry:  Surgery and extractions; pediatric anesthetic; implants and crow n  preparation; endodontics; soft tissue lesions; deep scaling; dentin hypersensitivity; periodontics; differential diagnosis of hyperemic pulp and facial  pain.

Benefits of Cold Laser Therapy: Eliminate or significantly reduce pain; Accelerate soft and hard tissue repair; Decrease inflammation; Minimize swelling and relax muscles; Dentin hypersensitivity; Stimulate fibroblasts, osteoblasts, odontoblasts; and Accelerate orthodontic mobility.

Discover Lasers LLC offers many laser products that are FDA approved, easy to use, safe, and provide fast and effective treatment for a wide variety of outcomes.
