- Biopsy taking.

Laser in Scaling and Root Planing
Scaling and Root Planing (SRP) is a common endodontic procedure. Endodontic means ‘inside tooth’, so this is the name for different manipulations with root canals. During SRP hygienist or endodontist cleans plaques and tartar from teeth and root in a space beneath your gum. Traditionally it can be done with ultrasonic device only but many hygienists claim that applying laser after cleaning gives additional disinfection and makes a procedure more effective. Thanks to cauterization, inflammation could be reduced faster and it is possible to get rid of using antibiotics.
Laser in Periodontal Therapy
Laser is good for incision of soft tissues and antimicrobial treatment of affected gums. Laser is used in periodontal surgery and significantly reduces the common problems as bleeding, pain, inflammation, long recovery time. Laser can be used without anesthesia where the traditional treatment required medicine reducing pain. Laser is successfully used for operations of gingivectomies and gingivoplasties and many patient find it more pleasant and painless. Laser can be used for incisions to provide access to the roots and bones. It is worth to note, that hard tissue laser could be used both for bones and gums.
Advantages of Using Laser versus Traditional Dentistry
- They could replace drilling avoiding unpleasant effect of vibration.
- When treating the teeth roots and soft tissues with laser, inflammation is reduced as cauterization takes place.
- No anesthetic is needed when using laser instead of traditional methods, as it is less painful treatment.
The most common area of application of laser is dental implantology. By means of laser soft tissues is removed and reshaped to prepare gums for placing of implants. Laser helps in cosmetic dentistry when it is needed for reconstructive purposes.
Lasers also are found affective for treatment of peri-implantitis, inflammations of tissues around implants.
