LASERS IN DENTISTRY:
The use of lasers in dentistry was introduced by Miaman in the 1960s. This led to continuous research in various applications of lasers in dentistry. Lasers have been developed having many hard and soft tissue applications. The explosive research studies in laser application in the last two decades has resulted in an array of different types of lasers that can be used for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. There are different wavelengths of lasers used in dentistry as of today. Lasers have advantageous effects on treatment such as excellent visibility, reduced chair time, reduced post-operative sequlae, 90% reduction in pain, high patient acceptance and coagulation of cut tissue.
What are LASERS?
LASER is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. They are a form of electromagnetic energy where photons are generated from a medium by stimulating the medium from an external source of energy. Albert Einstein, in 1917 laid the foundation for the invention of lasers and also its predecessor “The Maser”. He theorized that photoelectric amplification could emit a single frequency, in other words, stimulated emission. The term was first introduced in 1959 by a student of the Colombia University, Gordon Gould, in an article. The first functioning laser was built by Theodore Maiman at the Hughes Research Laboratories in Malibu, California. He used a mixture of helium and neon. Lasers have unique properties such as excellent monochromaticity and coherency. Dental lasers have emission wavelengths ranging between 500 and 10,600 microns. They either emit a visible light beam or an invisible infrared light beam. Lasers are named after the chemical elements and compounds that compose the medium.
What are the different emission modes of dental lasers?
Lasers have three different modes of emission:
Continuous Wave Mode - The beam is emitted at one power level continuously as the foot switch is pressed
Gated Pulse Mode - Periodic on and off by a mechanical shutter present in the front of a continuous wave laser
Free Running Pulse Mode - High energy laser light is emitted for a few micro seconds followed by a longer inactive gap. These lasers are computer controlled
What are the different wavelengths of lasers used in dentistry?
488 – 514 nm
600 – 908 nm
Applications of LASERS in Dentistry:
Lasers have numerous applications in dentistry. Moreover, laser systems such as the Waterlase have been developed having a wide range of hard and soft tissue applications.
Dental lasers can be used to carry out some or all (Waterlase) of the following procedures:
Hard Tissue Applications:
- Cavity preparation.
- Removal of caries
- Roughening and etching of tooth surface
- Pit and fissure evacuation and sealant placement
- Cutting, contouring, shaving and resection of osseous tissues.
Soft Tissue Applications:
- Biopsy (excisional and incisional)
- Exposure of unerupted teeth
- Removal of Fibroma
- Flap preparation
- Abscess drainage
- Curettage of post extraction sockets
- Soft tissue crown lengthening
- Sulcular debridement
- Treatment of herpetic and aphthous ulcers
- Pulp extirpation
- Root canal disinfection
- Root end preparation for retrograde filling
- Removal of pathological tissues
- Full, partial and split thickness flap procedures
- Soft tissue curettage
- Removal of periodontal diseased tissues
- Removal of highly edematous tissues
- Debridement of the gingival sulcus
- Removal of granulation tissue from bony defects
- Osteoplasty and recontouring of bone
- Removal of subgingival calculi in pockets
- Treatment of unstable alveolar ridges
- Enlarged maxillary tuberosity
- Soft tissue lesions
- Removal of Tori and Exostoses
- Laser gingival retraction
- Enhance aesthetics of pontic space
- Increase crown length
- Welding the titanium framework on multiple implants
- Decontamination of implants
What are the regulatory bodies for Lasers?
Since Lasers can be highly penetrative and cause tissue damage the following bodies regulate the manufacture and safety features of lasers.
- Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH)
- American National Standards Institute (ANSI)
- Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
The ANSI and OSHA have come up with a hazard classification for lasers which is as follows
LASER HAZARD CLASSIFICATION
Safe to view
Hazardous when viewed directly for longer than 1 second
Hazardous when viewed directly for longer than 0.25 seconds
Non-hazardous if viewed for less than 0.25 seconds without magnifying optics
Hazardous if viewed directly
Produce ocular, skin and fire hazards
