Lasers provide a more comfortable treatment option for a number of dental procedures involving hard or soft tissues compared to traditional drills and other tools.
LASER stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. The tool generates light energy in a very narrow, focused beam. This laser light produces a reaction when it hits tissue allowing it to remove or shape tissue.
All types of lasers work by delivering energy in the form of light, when used in lasers in dental treatment andsurgeries The laser acts as a cutting tool or vaporizer for the tissue it comes in contact with, and when used in procedures Teeth whitening The laser acts as a heat source that enhances the effect of the teeth whitening agents.
What types of lasers are used in dentistry?
Dental professionals use laser dental techniques on either hard tissue or soft tissue depending on the procedure required, hard tissue refers to teeth and bone and soft tissue refers to gums.
solid tissue laser
The hard tissue laser is characterized by its ability to cut hard structures such as teeth, as its wavelengths are absorbed through a mixture of water and metal present in the teeth. This laser is often used to prepare, shape, or repair teeth. dental fillings that have been eroded and to remove some of the tooth structure.
Common hard tissue procedures include:
Lasers can help in early detection caries And investigate the areas of necrosis.
Laser treatment of front and back tooth decay

Laser tooth sensitivity treatment
maybe Treating sensitive teeth From heat and cold using a dental laser by closing the dentin channels in the tooth, which prevents the transmission of sensitivity and pain to the nerve.
soft tissue laser
Soft tissue lasers are absorbed by the water and hemoglobin present in the gums. Hemoglobin is a protein found in red blood cells. These lasers are used in the treatment of periodontitis, including killing bacteria and stimulating tissue regrowth.
The soft tissue laser blocks nerve endings and blood vessels while penetrating the tissue. This is why the patient suffers almost no pain after laser treatment. The laser also promotes healing and faster tissue healing.
Common soft tissue laser uses include:
Gummy smile treatment in Turkey
Today, lasers are used to reshape the gum tissue that causes a gummy smile, which is characterized by the fact that the gums cover a large part of the tooth, which affects the aesthetics of the smile.
