Transcript of Laser in Dentistry
Looking deeper into Rikko Hudyono What is Laser ? in today's dentistry is an acronim for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation Laser Effect on Tissue The Advantages of Laser 1. Minimum collateral effect ARC Laser in medicine Romans' Sunbathe Ophtalmology Otorhinolaryngology Ear piercing Aesthetic Surgery Dentistry Phototermal Incision/excision Ablation/vaporization Hemostatis/coagulation Photochemical Disinfection of periodontal pockets and endodontic canals by using photosensitive compounds Biostimulation Low-level laser therapy for promoting wound healing, pain relief, and general anti-inflamatory effect Tissue temp Observed effects 37-50 (in celcius) >60 70-90 100-150 >200 Hyperthermia; bacterial inactivation Coagulation; protein denaturation Welding of Soft Tissue Wound Edges Vaporization Carbonization; tissue charing 2. Patient comfort can be enhanced 3. Hemostasis and coagulation are possible 4. No need of injection in some cases 5. Minimally invasive dentistry 6. Safe Minimum collateral effect In various studies, had shown that scalpel may cause lag in wound healing on the first 2 weeks Using scalpel Using Laser Patient comfort seal lymphatics and nerve endings biostimulation - decreasing inflammatory responses Hemostasis and Coagulation Due to its ability to perform hemostasis and reduce bleeding. Laser is indicated for medically-compromised patients No painful injection The use of anaesthetic solution is diminished.Full transcript
In many cases topical anaesthetic gel is sufficient Minimally Invasive Dentistry This concept may be achieved by utilizing loupes with 3x magnification and a sulcular laser tip. Is it safe ? YES !!
