Lasers deliver energy in the form of light, which is how they work. The laser functions as a cutting instrument or a vaporizer of tissue when utilised for surgical and dental operations. Cavity removal, tooth restoration, and periodontal surgery are just a few of the procedures that lasers can now undertake. Here is a list of many other procures that can be performed and treatments can be done by Diode Lasers-
It is evident and proved by multiple pieces of research that laser precisely cuts or “vaporizes” soft tissue, which is called ablation, it coagulates the tissue. This controlled coagulation increases hemostasis and is almost bloodless in many cases.
This hemostatic control combines with the bactericidal effect of the laser energy at the surgical site, reduces the discomfort during treatment, and minimizes the risk of infections and the need for antibiotics and sutures.
It also minimizes the inflammatory response, allowing faster and improved healing with less postoperative discomfort. The benefit of laser used for soft tissue treatment and management is that the treatments are often less invasive, more precise, and very conservative, preserving the healthy tissue while treating the diseased site. These benefits greatly reduce discomfort during treatment and minimize the need for local anesthesia for many procedures.
The ability of laser light energy to ablate (vaporize or cut) tissue is dependent on how well the energy is absorbed by that tissue, the amount of energy or power (watts), and the amount of time the energy is being emitted into the tissue.
The key to achieving the maximum efficiency for this tissue interaction is to match these variables with the chromophores (absorbers of light) present in the tissue with a laser that emits the proper wavelength.
IMDSL has innovated Dental Lasers with variety of Power and Wavelength to meet the different procedure requirements.
