The laser has been used as an instrument and method of dental treatment since 1990. For over 20 years it has been proven to be an excellent treatment for various dental problems. It can be used separately or in conjunction with many other dental procedures. Many people do not know how the laser works and are afraid that laser procedures may cause pain. Here is how it works: it produces a beam of light, which is very narrow and full of energy. Upon encountering the tissue, it causes a specific reaction. It is a complete pain–free method and is widely used in healthcare today.
Laser dentistry is well known for use in soft tissue procedures and there are many advantages. First, in most cases, there is no need to use anesthesia which is attractive to most patients. Lasers provide you comfort not only during the procedure but also afterward. In addition, the laser provides more precise execution of any kind of procedure, when compared to other dentistry methods. It allows the dentist to control incidental bleeding during the procedure which reduces the level of bacteria in the tooth cavities and in the damaged gum tissue. It provides a shorter period of healing and recovery in most cases.
Application of Laser Dentistry
Some of the many applications of laser dentistry include: treating infections in root canals; making the whitening process easier and quicker; performing biopsy procedures; reducing the unpleasant feeling from cold sores or canker sores; removing overgrown tissue which due to the use of specific medications; removing certain muscle attachments which inhibit the proper movement of your mouth; treating gum disease or removing inflamed gum tissues; and helping reduce the pain from an erupted wisdom tooth.
Not everyone is a candidate for laser dentistry, therefore a complete evaluation, radiography, and consult is a must!
Facial Rejuvenation Dentistry or Smile Lift utilizes anti-aging teeth reconstruction techniques designed to plump up the lips or cheeks. In the field of cosmetic dentistry, smile lifts can be used to augment many plastic surgery procedures. The end result is increased facial volume, as a key to looking younger.
Now the answer to a younger look and to staying youthful can lie with the shape, form, and appearance of your teeth. Applying Dental Veneers to upper and lower teeth can plump up the lips, cover the black corridor in the cheek area, and restore facial volume. The cosmetic dentist must measure the upper and lower teeth to see if enough teeth are showing at the rest position. Usually, at the age of 35 and beyond, one to one and a half millimeter edge of the tooth should be showing at rest position. Evaluation of the sound “E” should be done to evaluate harmony and balance between teeth and the lip curvature. The lower teeth will be evaluated via length and width ratio in accordance with gum symmetry and gum exposure since the lip drops due to gravity after the age of 35.
After complete evaluation and bite analysis and prior to the procedure, the cosmetic dentist must evaluate if there is room to lengthen the upper teeth or lower teeth. If so, he or she must utilize the back teeth to open or increase the bite. This is because 1 mm of porcelain added to the back teeth translates to 3 mm in front teeth, and adding the height and tweaking the color to a natural white instantly takes years off your face. Of course in the hands of a skilled professional, the porcelain veneers are sculpted individually to flatter your face and bring your best facial features out.

According to the American Dental Association (ADA), nowadays chewing sugar-free gums – especially those containing Xylitol – is a great aid for maintaining and protecting your teeth. This is mainly because Xylitol chewing gums increase saliva production, therefore protecting teeth and gums.
Sugar-free gums are not contraindicated on patients with porcelain veneers, porcelain inlays / onlays or who’ve had a full mouth restoration. One word of caution is not to chew gum while using temporary restorations. Also, if the chewing gum adheres to your teeth or between your teeth, it is highly advisable to visit your cosmetic dentist to rule out spacing or faulty restoration, which may be the cause.

The goal of each Dentist is to restore the missing tooth or teeth, so the teeth can function, the dental Implant placed will be biologically sound. Last, a long time, feel good and look great. The Implant Dentist will be able to restore teeth that resemble teeth the patients have lost before the decay or the accident. There must be no differences in functionality and phonetics by having implants placed, so the patient will be able to eat and speak as when he had their natural teeth.
The Dental implant Procedure and Steps:
The implant procedure is usually done in stages:
1- In the first stage, the dental surgeon will place the implant into the patient’s jaw bone (if there is not enough bone, other procedures such as Bone grafting is required). After placing the implant flush with the bone, the implant will be protected from the occlusion or bite forces while the healing process will have already begun. When the healing period is over, which is about 3 months, the implant will have to be exposed surgically by having some overlying gum tissue removed.
- After the first stage, the second stage surgical procedure implies the surgeon checking the implant and seeing whether it has been successfully integrated with the bone. If osseointegration is successful, then the restoration of the dental implants commence. The implant dentist will be either placing a pre-made or custom post to create a structure so that the final dental crown can be cemented or screwed on top of the abutment or post. Afterward, the gum will be allowed to be healed through around the abutment (post) so that eventually it forms a collar through which the implant restorative dentist will be able to easily access the implant when he will prepare the final restorative stage of having the implant crowns placed.
- In many cases, research proved that it’s possible dental implant dentists may place the abutment (the post) at the same time with the dental implant fixture (which can be in titanium or ceramic and substitutes the root). Of course, for osseointegration, the implant still requires proper healing.
- Again these Abutments need to also be adequately protected and not be exposed to chewing forces, after initial placement, while they are integrating into the jaw bone. Then after they have successfully integrated and healed, the final stage may commence. This stage implies creating and then having the prosthetic teeth (fixed crowns) connected to the implants.
What is One-Stage Surgery?
This is a method that makes use of a one-piece dental implant which features a metal collar that already the post or abutment is integrated with the dental implant fixture, while the bone is healing, and osseointegration is taking place. After a certain period of time in which healing has been possible, there will be an implant crown that’s going to get connected via a screw or cemented to the implant fixture.
What is the overall Success Rate of Dental Implants?
Even though many dentists have decades of experience in such a procedure, there is still not 100% success rate, and in some cases food impaction has been reported especially if the dental implant is adjacent to natural dentition or tooth, However, research around the U.S, reported a success rate to be around 90%.
