Health services are gaining different dimensions every day in the light of scientific developments. The use of laser technology in dentistry practices is one of them. Laser has an important place in modern dentistry, supporting traditional dentistry practices and offering patients a more comfortable and technological treatment alternative. Laser used in many stages of dental treatments; By mixing water and air with the laser beam, it provides treatment without touching or putting pressure on the teeth.

Lasers are devices that provide comfort for both the patient and the physician.

From the patient's perspective; It is used safely and successfully in protective, that is, preventing caries, increasing resistance to caries, preparing teeth for fillings, cleaning caries, sterilizing prepared teeth, pulp coating, whitening discolored teeth, hardening restorations, eliminating tooth sensitivity and many other procedures.

From the dentist's point of view; It provides the advantage of being able to perform many operations simultaneously with the same device by changing the settings. The pain felt in classical dentistry practices is largely caused by the vibration and heat created by the high-speed rotating cutting tools used. With laser, it is possible to remove only decayed tissues without touching healthy tissues. Since vibration and temperature increase are largely prevented in cavity preparations made with laser, many of the treatments can be performed painlessly, thus reducing the need for anesthesia.

Bleeding can be controlled. With this method, restorations close to the gum can be completed in the same session, and the retention and clinical life of the restorations increases significantly. Chin thanks to laser All kinds of surgical procedures can be performed more comfortably and easily on the bone and gums.

One of the most important advantages of laser operations is that it prevents the transfer of bacteria from one place to another due to the operation without touching the tissue, that is, the risk of infection. is to be eliminated. In addition, laser beams kill bacteria in the working areas and minimize the risk of infection after the operation.

Lasers cause minimal damage to the surrounding tissues during incisions made in soft tissues and provide a clear field of vision without bleeding. The results of gum operations performed with lasers are more successful and wound healing is completed more quickly.

With laser technology in implant applications, the surgical procedure steps are simplified and time is saved throughout the treatment. Lasers can also be used in the treatment of herpes and canker sores.

With biostimulation applied in surgical operations and implant surgery, post-operative pain and swelling remain at a minimum level.

Another area of ​​use of laser devices in dentistry is It is the effective cleaning of bacteria in the canal or diseased gums.

In addition, in patients with genetically excessive purple discoloration (hyperpigmentation) in the gums, this problem is eliminated by laser peeling in 3 or 4 sessions.

Most importantly, in order to achieve effective and successful results in laser treatments, the physician and assistant personnel who will use the laser device must receive training on basic laser physics, laser and tissue interaction, possible dangers and precautions to be taken.
