Laser implantation of teeth

Traditionally, dental implantation is carried out in two stages. Initially, a surgical intervention is performed - a gum incision and implant placement, and after a few months, an abutment (implant-crown connector) and a permanent crown are placed on the implant. Advances in modern medicine have made this procedure as painless and comfortable as possible, but it is quite difficult to avoid discomfort in the postoperative period and ignore the nuances of healing of postoperative sutures. In order to facilitate the healing process, in some cases, doctors offer patients laser implantation as an alternative to traditional dental implantation.

Laser implantation is not a separate type dental implants, as it might seem at first glance to many patients. This phrase refers to the way of cutting the gums for implant placement using a laser, which is often used for treatment in modern dentistry.

Compared to a laser, the advantages of using a laser for surgery include:

  • absolute sterility (there is no contact between the cut tissue and the surgical instrument, but in modern clinics the issue of instrument sterility is unacceptable)
  • the effect of antimicrobial treatment (the laser beam, when interacting with living tissue, neutralizes all pathological microorganisms, which excludes postoperative complications, which is also not a problem according to the high standards of treatment in modern dentistry)
  • significantly less traumatic effect on the gum tissue
  • lack of blood, since the laser "cauterizes" the tissue immediately during the surgical intervention
  • less time spent on the surgical stage of implantation
  • need less anesthesia

Which one method of implantation suitable in a particular case, you need to find out individually with a dentist, who, taking into account all the characteristics of the body, age and the amount of work needed to restore lost teeth, will recommend the best way, explaining all its advantages, disadvantages and possible consequences.
