Tooth operations – removing the top of the root and the “pus sac” with the laser,
How does the laser work?
Similar to the use of a drill, the tooth is treated with a laser beam and a gentle stream of water. The process used in the work is called HydroPhotonic and this combination of laser and water provides a very precise and gentle intervention.
Does it hurt?
The use of a laser does not hurt. Depending on the intervention, it can cause an unpleasant feeling. For example, based on our experience, for the treatment of paradentosis is used a very small dose of anesthetic, treatment of caries can cause some pain (much less than with a drill), but very often patients do not require anesthesia. When doing cyst operations, the postoperative period is shorter and significantly less painful than in standard techniques.
Also, some of our patients have stated that they are pleasantly surprised, as the complete feeling is different from what they are used to. No contact with the tooth during repair. All of our patients that have had laser treatment so far, have reacted very positively.
