In the conventional technique there are certain conditions needs surgical management.
While dealing with these procedures the technique requires  usage of instruments/ blades for tissue separation which results in bleeding in  surgical site and the time for the wound healing  also increases.
The modern approaches came for increasing the convenience of the procedure.

A  LASER is an innovative tool in modern Dentistry.
It deals with the light amplification by the  stimulated emission of radiation.
Miaman was the person who made the LASER usage in various soft and hard tissue applications.

Questions may arise regarding in which way the LASER provides benefit  during the treatment .
The following discussion will clear all your doubts.

The LASER is  a light having single wavelength and is of many types based on the medium they work such as

  • Carbon-dioxide,
  • diode,
  • NDYAG ,
  • erbium.

The laser application varies  according to the tissue types,namely Hard  and Soft tissues.

How this kind of LASER works ??
For the LASER to carry out the procedure it requires an energy source, highly refractive optical mirrors and  a lasing medium.
When the light is activated it is delivered into the target tissue using fiber-optic cable.

Coming to the applications of LASER

The LASER helps in following areas:
