Painless dentistry, no drilling and no needles. Sounds too good to be true?? Actually it IS true!!!!!!! Pain, needles, drills and numbness lasting for hours has prompted just about everyone to cringe at the thought of going to the dentist. Lasers address all of these and will begin a new horizon in the dental health industry. Until recently, lasers could only debride (clean) gum tissue or reshape it. Electronics and technology in the world have advanced incredibly and dentistry is no exception.
High speed hand-pieces have been a mainstay in dentistry for 60 years. They were developed to replace the belt driven models of former generations that were very slow (only a few thousand rpm) and ran very hot. They were replaced by high speed turbine engines with technology borrowed from jet turbines. They run @400,000 rpm, are water and air cooled. About 20 years ago lasers came on the scene only to be used on soft tissues.
Newer lasers can now be used on both soft and hard tissues (teeth) in the oral cavity. Making use of energy levels instead of grinding, lasers can minimize or eliminate the most common fears. Very often, lasers can perform procedures that ordinarily require anesthesia.
*If anesthesia is needed, the laser can anesthetize the tooth.
*The loud whine of the drill is eliminated (although lasers do make a noise)
*Periodontal (gum) treatments have the added benefit of killing bacteria
*Sutures are usually not needed, bleeding is rarely a problem and healing is rapid.
At present, the only drawback is the $80,000 cost. As with the cell phone, computers and laptops as more manufacturers enter the marketplace and the demand grows, the prices WILL come down. All of us will experience the use of lasers at some point and our children will certainly reap its full benefit.
