Lasers in dentistry

Lasers are precise and minimally invasive. We use them in surgery as a substitute for a scalpel, in the treatment of mucosal diseases and in the early diagnostics of caries.

In order to familiarize you with the use of lasers in dentistry, we have prepared the following:

Why do we use lasers?

At the Apolonija Dental Clinic, we use lasers for various procedures. Lasers enable painless healing of wounds and avoidance of discomfort. There is no bleeding, the tissue heals faster, and the procedures are gentler.

In particular, they have proven successful in lengthening the dental crown and enabled a completely painless procedure with outstanding aesthetic results.

Gummy smile

Excessive gingival display negatively affects the overall impression of a smile. It is common for gums to set down on some teeth (most often second incisors and premolars) so there is no uniform line.

Aesthetically, it would be ideal not to see more than 1-2 mm of gums when you smile, in addition to the front teeth. Excessive gum display can be an aesthetic problem.

The use of laser at the Apolonija Dental Clinic

According to tissues to be treated, we differentiate between lasers for soft (gingiva) and lasers for hard tissues (bones and teeth).

At the Apolonija Dental Clinic, we use laser on a daily basis because it gives us excellent results in various procedures:

In oral surgery

The laser has proven to be faster and more painless than a scalpel, while the tissue heals a lot faster after the procedure. Postoperative recovery is shortened and tissue heals with fewer scars.

It also has an advantage for patients who have a blood clotting disorder because of its hemostatic effect (significant increase in blood clotting) so suturing can be avoided in some cases.

In periodontology

It is used to reshape the gingiva (gums). If patients are treated with laser in addition to conventional periodontal therapy, a significant improvement in symptoms will be noticeable, and the further development of the disease will be slowed down.

In root canal treatment (endodontics)

The laser is used as a complement to classic endodontic therapy due to its ability to effectively reduce the number of microorganisms in the infected canal.

In the treatment of herpes, canker sores and other inflammatory conditions

Due to its anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect, laser treatment can be used in small quantities to treat canker sores and herpes.

In teeth whitening

Laser teeth whitening is a safe, fast and effective method.

Laser crown lengthening

It has an advantage over other methods, such as the classic use of a scalpel, because it does not cause bleeding and allows faster healing.

The advantage of using lasers in dentistry

The advantages over traditional treatment methods are:

  • Pain-free
  • Shorter period of recovery
  • Faster treatment

With the help of a laser, we form a harmonious relationship between the teeth and gums as one of the most important factors of the aesthetics of a smile.

Apart from the field of aesthetic medicine, the advantages of using lasers are obvious in other branches of dental medicine.

The Apolonija Dental Clinic combines a 50-year tradition with state-of-the-art treatment protocols and state-of-the-art technology.

We approach each patient individually.
