In the age of technology, dentistry hasn’t been behind. There has been a remarkable advancement in dentistry in the last two decades. Whether it’s the Stem Cell Regeneration or Invisalign or Laser Dentistry or the very recent 3D printed Dental Implants the research and development in dentistry is advancing in a very quick pace. The results of which are the reason we are leading a healthier and meaningful life.
Dentists started using lasers about two decades back in the early 90’s. Today Lasers are used in various dental procedures like…
- Laser in treating Tooth Decay – Hard Tissue lasers like Er:YAG and Nd:YAG have surpassed conventional rotary drills. Helps in clearing the decay and sterilising the surrounding sound dentin
- Laser for Gum Disease – Soft Tissue Diode Lasers are eﬀective in killing bacteria through heat generation. Apart from sterilising the tissues, lasers also coagulate the tissues thereby minimising bleeding and thus promotes healing.
- Laser for Tissue Reshaping and Removal – Soft Tissue Lasers are frequently used for Crown Lengthening, Gum Resurfacing to reduce pigmentation and for excision of growth and anatomical defects.
Laser Dentistry at Alux Dental
At ALUX DENTAL we use the ultra-modern dual wavelength 20 watt ( very powerful ) Gemini Laser.
This unique dual wavelength of Gemini Laser is US FDA approved for the following indications…
- Exposure of unerupted teeth
- Frenectomy & Frenotomy
- Crown Lengthening
- Root Canal Sterilisation
- Excision of soft tissue growths
- Incision & coagulation in surgeries
Is Laser Dental Treatment safe?
Yes, in fact laser dental treatments are US FDA approved for most of the dental procedures.
How does Laser Dental Treatment fare in comparison to conventional dental treatment?
Laser Dental Treatment is less painful, minimal bleeding or no bleeding, promotes quick healing and also sterilises surrounding tissues.
Is Laser Root Canal Treatment more eﬀective than Conventional RCT?
Conventional Root Canal Treatment aided by laser is deﬁnitely more eﬀective as it kills bacteria with heat and achieves complete sterilisation of the root canal.
What is the cost of Laser Root Canal Treatment in India?
Cost of Laser Root Canal Treatment is usually the same as Conventional RCT or slightly expensive.
What precautions do I take after Laser Dental Treatment?
Basically after a laser dental treatment the advised precautions are the same as any conventional dental treatments like use of anti-inﬂammatory and cold compressions both of which promote healing.
Use of a microscope in dentistry ascertains precision. As the name suggests all details are visualised at microscopic level hence the results achieved are precise and well deﬁned. In Microscope assisted Root Canal Treatment an endodontist can visualise the canal very clearly, negotiate the canal well & hence can achieve a 3D seal without any gaps. Microscope also allows predictions and prognosis reports as one can visualise in realtime-live and magniﬁed images.
MICROSCOPE DENTISTRY AT ALUX DENTAL
Our trained Microscope Endodontist is hands on with these procedures, has an experience of almost 10years in microscope assisted surgeries. The microscope used at Alux Dental comes with Carl Zeiss optics, the best in image quality. Our dental chairs too are programmable to microscope dentistry standards. Our drive to deliver excellence is encompassed by great skills, remarkable technology, ﬁve star rated dental products and class leading etiquettes.
Is microscope assisted root canal treatment better than conventional root canal treatment?
Yes, since the root canals are clearly visualised and microscope allows magniﬁcation, the cleaning, shaping and ﬁlling of root canal treatment can be better.
Is microscope assisted root canal expensive than conventional root canal treatment?
Marginally yes, as the microscope root canal treatments are all about precision and excellence.
What dental procedures are commonly performed under microscope?
- Microscope Root Canal Treatment
- Microscope Apical Surgeries
- Microscope assisted surgeries
3D DENTAL SCANS
Medically referred as CBCT or Cone Beam Computed Tomography is an advancement in dentistry in the recent years. CBCT has revolutionised dental treatment planning especially in Dental Implant Surgery and other Jaw Correction Surgeries. One can, not only visualise the anatomy in all three dimensions but also plan, simulate and modulate surgeries based on the three dimensional visualisation.
Does a CBCT help in Dental Implant Surgery?
Deﬁnitely, a three dimensional view of one’s existing bone & anatomical structure help visualise, plan and pre-empt surgeries in a more precise and optimised manner. Dental Implant Surgery has become very successful as an oral surgeon can plan the procedure well with the help of a CBCT.
Is CBCT better than a OPG (ORTHO PANTAMOGRAM)?
Yes, CBCT is a 3D visualisation whereas OPG is a panoramic 2D image.
What is the cost of CBCT in Bangalore?
CBCT is marginally expensive than an OPG and the cost of CBCT depends on the ﬁeld of view but on an average 3000 to 4000 INR is the cost of CBCT in Bangalore
