LASER TECHNOLOGIES IN TREATMENT


lecenije1

One of the common problems of tooth decay for most people is not only caries, but also the treatment of dental canals. The need for such treatment arises as a result of advanced caries, inflammation of the internal loose layer of the tooth - the pulp, and some other cases.

Due to the fact that this treatment requires a special professional approach, it is highlighted in a separate section of dentistry. This is the so-called endodontic treatment. Its purpose is to eliminate the causes of inflammation of the dental canal, remove all damaged tissues, and also install a seal to prevent further negative effects on the inside of the tooth.

 

The challenges of traditional dental treatments

Until recently, endodontic treatment was carried out exclusively by mechanical methods. They included the use of drills and special devices to provide access to the channel. However, this part of the tooth has an individual structure. Both the main channel and the lateral microchannels can be of completely different shapes. In some cases, the too sinuous shape of the canals or their extreme narrowness led to the ineffectiveness of all measures taken. Also, there were cases of the occurrence of additional complications, among which:

  • Unacceptable for high-quality filling the shape of the tooth cavity
  • Deviation of the direction of exposure of borinstruments from the line of the dental canal.
  • Tool outage.
  • Inability to access the narrowest parts of the inflamed canal.
  • Inability to access the narrowest parts of the inflamed canal.

As a result, sometimes, instead of treatment, a person was offered to remove a tooth. This solved the local problem of a diseased tooth and immediately created a new one - the need for prosthetics.

Dentistry has taken a step forward

The search for new effective methods in the field of endodontology has led to the use of laser technologies in this field. Laser dentistry was not only much more effective in the fight against all the main types of problems in the oral cavity, but also less traumatic for patients. This contributed to the rapid spread of the technique throughout the world. Moreover, many of the people who have already experienced laser dental treatment themselves have completely rethought their attitude to going to the dentist.

What is the fundamental difference between laser dentistry and traditional methods? A focused laser beam is able to effectively affect the inflamed tooth tissue at a depth of more than 1000 microns. This figure significantly exceeds the limits to which mechanical devices of the previous generation were capable. Throughout the entire length of the dental canal, tissue sterilization occurs with a result of 99.9%.

An example of successful laser dentistry is the use of VSP Fotona technology. In this case, a directed pulse with a power of not more than 5 kW is able to sterilize a cavity with a depth of 1000 μm. The same laser beam seals all the smallest branches from the main channel, which would simply be impossible to do using only means of traditional endodontology. The main channel in this case takes on a drop-shaped form, which is best suited for further filling with gutta-percha pins and pastes based on gutta-percha.

Why are treatment lasers so effective?

 

The laser beam is tuned so that it affects only the affected tissue. This ensures the integrity of the remaining parts of the tooth, minimizes the invasiveness of treatment, and, in many cases, saves the tooth.

The Nd: YAG laser in a short time heats the bacteria in the inflamed canals of the tooth, disinfects the cavity and destroys the destructive tissues. After this, the dentist can only fill the canal.

Reviews of laser dentistry by professionals in this industry suggest that this technology not only greatly simplifies the treatment regimen, but also allows those medical procedures that were previously unavailable. Patient reviews indicate that, thanks to laser dentistry, going to the doctor is no longer a cause for fear. Now, dental treatment is completely painless and much faster.
