Lasers have found themselves a huge area in dentistry lately.
In our clinics, we use WaterLase© YSGG laser which can perform almost all procedures on bone, teeth or soft tissues and azlase diode laser which is used for bleaching, Temporomandibular joint pain relief and some soft tissue cases.

What are the advantages of using laser?
It is possible to bleach every teeth in 4 minutes only! Hypersensitivity related to bleaching will be minimal through being exposed to bleaching agents for such short time.
Since there is no need to contact with the tissue, pain related to vibration and pressure will not occur. Thus anaesthesia may not be needed.
Perfect homeostatic control is a great advantage for surgical procedures. Plus, laser provides more comfortable and fast healing.
Sterile and disinfected operation area.
Most conservative approach for dental fillings with selective removal of infected dentin.
