Dental Laser Center ( Under Construction )
For many decades, dentists all over the world used drills and scalpels to cut through teeth and gums.
Drills used in clinics nowadays are almost the same used 200 years ago with many modifications in shape and material but no change in cutting perception.
By the end of the 80s, the medical field witnessed the introduction of LASER as a different and efficient tool for better medical care; it was first used by dermatologists, ophthalmologists and physiotherapists and by 1990, LASERs were approved by FDA to be used in dental gum treatment.
By 1996, the dental LASER revolution arouse when the FDA approved the usage of LASER's in teeth cutting. Since then, research and development activities did not stop to introduce the currently available wide range of dental LASERs with various applications. The main difference between teeth cutting LASERs and normal drills is that LASERs does not need to touch the teeth at all, this means no cracks, less heat generation, no vibration and no pain in the most of cases.
Cavities performed with LASERs are highly conservative, etched and disinfected which means less tooth damage and better filling conditions and durability.
In most of cases, the dentist does not need to anesthetize his patient either in soft or hard tissue cases which means better patients satisfaction and less anxiety.
LASERs are used in dentistry in a very wide range of applications like painless gums recontouring, painless cavities and fillings, disinfecting root canals, oral surgeries, teeth bleaching, fastening orthodontic teeth movements and removing black gums.
Nowadays, more than 40,000 Dental LASERs are installed all over the world helping about 120,000 dentists to treat more than 5 million patients.
