Although laser treatments are very popular in the medical and cosmetic fields, their use in the dental field has been rising. Patients may be more familiar with laser whitening treatments. However, laser treatments offer a lot more in terms of oral care as well.

Laser treatments provide relief for patients who get irritated by the traditional drills and dental tools. Although laser treatments are not considered common in many dental clinics, their use to treat hard and soft tissue dental conditions is increasing. And they are an option at Levantine Dental Clinic.

So how does it work?

The dentist uses the laser tool to create a focused beam of light which reacts to certain tissue. Unique wavelengths produced by different laser instruments target certain tissue. Soft tissue lasers target soft tissue (such as the gums), and hard tissue lakers target hard tissue (such as the bone and teeth).

Similar to the traditional dental treatments, patients’ laser treatments can start with receiving anesthesia. However, the amount of anesthesia is much less than the amount required for the traditional treatments.

With laser treatments, patients do not have to feel any discomfort caused by the vibrations with dental drills. Moreover, patients experience very little pain or no pain at all. There are more benefits to dental laser treatments.


Dental Laser Treatments benefits:

  • Prevents the risk of infections as the laser disinfects the area it is treating.
  • Reduces the need for sutures in some cases.
  • Very little bleeding as the laser elevates clotting of the blood during the treatment.
  • Healing process occurs quickly with laser treatment.
  • Reduces pain and swelling after the procedure.
  • Prevents damage to the neighboring tissue as the laser’s beam of light focuses on the damaged tissue.
  • Can be used for all ages.

What are the Uses of Laser Dentistry?


In laser dentistry, there are two main areas of focus. Some lasers focus on teeth and bone treatment, and others focus on gum and soft tissue treatment. The wavelengths produced by the laser depend on the targeted area, whether it is soft or hard tissue. Therefore, each case requires a certain type of laser. Laser treatment for hard tissue:

Dentists use hard tissue lasers to cut through the hard tissue (teeth and bone). Hard tissue lasers eliminate the need for anesthesia in some procedures such as dental fillings. Moreover, hard tissue lasers also assist dentists with:

  • Preparing and shaping teeth before getting composite fillings
  • Repairing harmed fillings
  • Eliminating some tooth structure (in cases like cavities)
  • Treating teeth sensitivity

Laser treatment for soft tissue:

Dentists use soft tissue lasers to cut through soft tissue while sealing exposed blood vessels at the same time. Some of the popular soft tissue laser treatments are:

  • Treating gum infections (scaling, removing plaque, and bone grafting or soft tissue grafting)
  • Improving gum lines that are out of proportion
  • Detecting hassle in tongue movement
  • Crown lengthening
  • Eliminating folds that have arisen in the soft tissue due to dentures

Amongst the various laser dentistry treatments, we provide you with some of the treatments available at Levantine Dental Clinic.

Third Molar Extraction – How Does Laser Dentistry Support Third Molar Extraction Procedures?

When patients have to get their wisdom teeth removed, the first thing they should do is get scans of their teeth. Our patients can get their scans in-house at Levantine Dental clinic after their initial consultation. Afterward, the dentist discusses the case with the concerned patient and suggests a specific surgical approach.
At Levantine Dental Clinic, our expert dentists prefer to conduct wisdom teeth extractions with minimal pain and swelling. Our goal is to speed up the healing process and get our patients back to their normal life as early as possible. To achieve our goal, we utilize numerous state-of-the-art technologies that are not used as frequently in other dental clinics.
Dentists at Levantine Dental clinic use CGF technology, which contains stem cells that trigger regeneration. In addition, CGF also has immunological cells that greatly reduce the risks of disinfection. Another technology our dentists use is Osteon, which consequently triggers the body to rebuild new bone in the neighboring area.
Most importantly, during tooth extraction procedures, our expert dentists use lasers to eliminate infections and trigger the neighboring tissues to heal faster.

TMJ Pain Treatment with Laser – How Does Laser Therapy Work on Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction?

Dentists at Levantine Dental Clinic use the best equipment to relieve patients who suffer from TMJ disorder, low-level laser therapy (LLLT). This eases the patient’s discomfort, pain, inflammation, and swelling in the jaw and neighboring muscles.
Low-level laser therapy supports blood flow, which increases nutrients and oxygen delivered to affected muscles. LLLT also triggers the natural healing process of the body and accelerates recovery time. Moreover, LLLT helps ligaments and tissues to function stronger and faster. Most importantly, it reduces discomfort and pain to a great extent.
Each session takes about 10 to 15 minutes, and the patient should have at least 2 sessions a week. The dentist recommends the total number of sessions as per each case.

Aphthous Ulcer Treatment with Laser

Aphthous ulcer, also known as canker sores, are small lesions that appear on the oral soft tissue or at the base of a patient’s gums. They cause pain and discomfort for patients who suffer from it, and can affect eating and talking.
Laser treatment of aphthous ulcers is easy, quick, and does not cause any pain. Ulcers that are treated using laser therapy give instant results, pain relief, and less relapses in the future.

Frenectomy and Frenotomy with Laser

The frenulum is the tissue that attaches the tongue to the bottom of the mouth, and the lips to the inside of the mouth. Some patients suffer from frenulum abnormality. Therefore, the dentist carries out a procedure to fix the abnormality and establish the natural function of the frenulum.
For infants, the indicators emerge around the breastfeeding period. For instance, the mother’s infant might experience difficulty during breastfeeding. Whereas for adults, the indicators are impairment in speech, trouble in lip movement, or a receding gum line. Depending on the dentist’s examination and recommendation, the patient undergoes either a frenectomy or a frenotomy.
A frenectomy fully removes the frenulum, while a frenotomy means cutting the frenulum and moderately relocating it. The dentist applies anesthesia to the concerned tissue and conducts the procedure using a laser. Thanks to laser technology, the risk of infections and bleeding is reduced to a great extent. Most importantly, the patient experiences only a little discomfort and pain compared to the traditional way.

Exposure of Unerupted Teeth with Laser

Teeth that fail to erupt may be impacted, and the dentist exposes impacted teeth to help them erupt in. In cases where the impacted tooth is near the surface (not covered under the bone), the dentist can expose it using a laser. During laser procedures to expose impacted teeth, patients need some anesthesia. However, if the impacted tooth is covered deep under the bone, an oral surgeon will have to expose it with a surgical procedure.
How is the procedure done with a laser?
The laser light eliminates a narrow area of tissue above the impacted tooth. The patient experiences no bleeding as the tissue is sterilized as the laser light eliminates it. Eliminating the tissue takes merely a few minutes of the procedure.
After the tooth is exposed, a small attachment is bonded to the surface of the tooth. The dentist ties a flexible wire to the attachment, which in turn brings the tooth to its correct position. It will take a few weeks for the concerned tooth to fully erupt into the mouth. Laser is also very helpful for excess gingival tissue removal (gingivectomy).
All dental procedures and treatments carried out with lasers offer the same benefits. The laser always dramatically reduces inflammation, consequently allowing the healing process to happen quickly.

Laser Gingivectomy

Laser gingivectomy procedure eliminates excess gum tissue, and it treats gummy smiles as well periodontal disease.
A gummy smile can be caused due to unusual structures in the patient’s mouth, excess gum tissue, shortened upper lip, or extremely active facial muscles. Although a gummy smile has no negative effects on the function of the jaws, the way people see gummy smiles affects patients’ self-confidence.
A periodontal disease can be treated by laser gingivectomy. Patients usually experience no pain from periodontal disease, which makes it difficult to diagnose. However, there are symptoms of a periodontal disease that act as strong indicators. For example, teeth appear longer and gum coverage lessens as patients age. Other symptoms are gums seeming swollen, teeth feeling a little bit loose in the patient’s mouth, and greater sensitivity to air, cold weather, and sweetness.
Patients who suffer from periodontal disease develop pockets in the gums. The pockets are developed due to plaque, which pushes the patient’s gum away from the tooth. This makes bacteria more prone to getting stuck in these pockets. If left untreated, this consequently causes irreversible damage to the bone. Thanks to laser gingivectomy, it removes the pockets and seals the gums to the patient’s teeth.

Laser Gingivectomy


What are the differences between surgical gingivectomy and laser gingivectomy?

During traditional surgical gingivectomy, the dentist cuts through the gum and then sutures the wound. This leaves puncture wounds, and they are more prone to get easily infected. Whereas laser gingivectomy simply uses laser light instead of surgical instruments. The laser burns the wound with heat to stop bleeding and prevent infections (cauterization). This means less gum damage and shorter healing period with laser.
The ultimate fear for patients who have to undergo gingivectomy procedure is the amount of pain they might experience. However, patients feel no pain at all with both methods, surgical gingivectomy and laser gingivectomy. This is because patients have to be anesthetized for this procedure. However, the difference between the two methods is the amount of anesthesia needed. Laser gingivectomy is more accurate than the traditional surgical procedure. Therefore, anesthesia is focused on the concerned area rather than having to spread it for precautionary measures.

If you are easily irritated by dental instruments and sensitive to pain, contact Levantine Dental clinic to conduct laser treatment.
