Dentistry ,nowadays ,uses the best technology provided
by different fields and lasers have not remain untouched. Special lasers have been
designed for use in the dental field.
A LASER is an instrument that produced a very narrow,intense beam of light energy.When
laser light comes in contact with the tissue,it causes a reaction.This light produced
by the laser can remove or shape teeth, bone or gums. Several variants of lasers
are now available. Different lasers use different wavelengths and this means that
they are better suited for different applications. Some lasers work best on soft
tissues like gums and are best used for periodontal/gum surgeries.These lasers cause
cauterization of the tissue,thereby resulting in less bleeding. Other types of dental
lasers work on teeth or bones of the jaws.
