Dental laser therapy

Dental laser therapy

The SiroLaser Blue is the world's first dental laser to perform a wide range of treatments thanks to its three different probes. This compact and versatile tooth laser works with blue, infrared and red diodes.

Thanks to its fast blood clotting effect, the laser is an ideal tool for incision without bleeding, and it does not destroy the surrounding tissues when used.

The pulsed light of the laser allows the germs and bacteria present in the root canal area to be reduced even where the rinse aid does not reach without the laser photoacoustic waves.

Benefits of laser treatment

As a result, this innovative laser root canal treatment technique is very popular as the best disinfection method to date, since the risk of postoperative complications is almost non-existent, not to mention that healing is faster than if it was done with traditional methods.

Method of root canal therapy

During root canal treatment, the laser beam is inserted into the root canal with a long, thin instrument, thus killing bacteria and preventing the development of inflammation.

The efficiency of the laser in root canal treatment is outstanding because it reaches places that traditional dental instruments cannot.

  • It kills a significant amount of harmful bacteria
  • Reduces bleeding
  • It guarantees painless treatment
  • Postoperative edema is negligible
  • Relieves post-surgery pain
  • Provides scar-free wound healing

Laser root canal treatment

The goal of root canal treatment is to effectively remove contaminated nerve tissue from the tooth. These infected soft tissues are removed manually or mechanically.

During the process, the laser produces a bactericidal effect that provides deeper disinfection than a classic rinsing system with chemicals. The use of the laser also promotes cell regeneration (cellular biostimulation) in the affected area, thus further increasing the success of the interventions. Additionally, laser root canal treatment allows the roots to be disinfected in a single treatment - if the infection is not severe - which means the dentist can close the root canals immediately, hence limiting the risk of postoperative pain. In contrast, the manual procedure can cause infection in the root due to the accumulation of bacteria and the formation of an abscess.

In what other areas do we use laser therapy?

Thanks to its three different diodes, the laser can be used in case of many different treatments. It is also used to supplement traditional treatments or as an alternative to conventional treatment techniques.

Implantology

It can be used for surgeries around the implant, such as removing the implant, cleaning it, and preparing the edges to make prints and images.

Periodontology

The diode laser is used to reduce germs and bacteria in the gum pocket and to reduce granular tissue at the bottom of the pockets.

Surgery

It also has several benefits when it comes to oral surgery: it reduces bleeding, provides a painless, less invasive treatment, and provides seamless scarring.

CEREC/prostheses

Reducing the extent of grooves and/or stopping bleeding to make prints.

Dental hyperthyroidism, or hypersensitivity

Low power laser therapy to treat hypersensitivity.

Contraindications

Certain medical conditions are contraindicated for laser procedure: hypersensitivity to local anaesthetics, allergies, cancer, pregnancy, heart disease, pneumonia, bleeding disorders, sleep disorders (apnoea), weakened immune system, or any medical condition or medication that may interfere with the operation’s use of certain light and laser sources.

The procedure should also not be used when it comes to patients with skin diseases (photodermatitis), or photosensitive patients (photoallergy).
