We review some of the current advanced technologies and procedures used in Laser dentistry.


1. Treatment of decay with air abrasion?
TOP

  • Air abrasion is a method of gently and precisely removing dental decay with a high powered fine spray of aluminium oxide powder:
    • It reduces the need for the use of the high-speed drill.
    • Local anaesthesia is often not necessary.
    • There is no vibration or smell.
    • The procedure is usually completed more quickly.
    • It is especially good for treating teeth with early decay.
    • It is completely safe to use.


2. Treatment of decay and gum problems with dental lasers? TOP

  • A dental laser is an intense concentration of energy into a beam of light. This is called a laser beam:
    • The energy of lasers can be used to vaporise tissues.
    • It provides a painless and vibration free method of removing dental decay


3. Digital x-ray imaging?
TOP

  • When computer technology is applied to the taking of x-rays, it allows the image to be made, stored, retrieved and transmitted to another site in a digital form:
    • The images may be enlarged permitting better diagnosis.
    • They can easily be stored in the computer or printed on paper.
    • The system is thought to considerably reduce exposure to radiation.
    • The use of digital x-ray imaging is increasing rapidly.


4. Tissue engineering? TOP

  • This is a method of growing genetic tissues in a laboratory:
    • When a patient lacks the tissues needed for grafting, this method of growing new tissues can be very valuable.
    • This new tissue may be grafted back into the patient to replace tissue lost because of disease or trauma.
    • It will be of great benefit for gum and bone grafting..
