Advancement in Laser Dentistry Techniques


Laser dentistry techniques have been around since 1994 and have been used by many Family Dentists. It has been successfully used to treat many dental problems. These techniques have been used worldwide by many dentists.  They have also received FAD approval. Even though the ADA is a little skeptical about approving Laser dentistry, they still acknowledge it’s potential. The lasers used in dentistry are very different from the cold lasers used in phototherapy. Phototherapy lasers are tuned to a different frequency and mostly used to treat headache, swelling, and pain.

In the field of dentistry, laser dentistry techniques are often used to effectively treat tooth decay, diseases of the gums, removing lesions, and bleaching teeth. In cases of tooth decay, lasers remove the damaged portion that has formed on the tooth and also to prepares that surrounding area for filling. The second step of the procedure uses lasers to cure the filling.

When treating gum disease with Laser dentistry techniques, the lasers reshape the gums and aid in removing any bacteria that can form when a root canal is being performed. Lasers that are used in lesion removal procedures, assist in removing small pieces of tissues. These are later sent to the lab to be examined for cancer.

Laser dentistry techniques are also used in bleaching of the teeth. During teeth whitening procedures, peroxide solution is used on the teeth. The lasers are then used to activate the solution and speed up the beaching.

There are many advantages for dentist to adapt to laser dentistry procedures. When you compare the use of lasers to the usual drill methods, the lasers are, known to cause very little pain and which means that the need to use anesthesia during a dental procedure is limited. Lasers used in dental procedures are, also known to reduce any anxiety that a patient might undergo during a dental procedure. The one thing that most patients love about in lasers used in dental procedures is that there is minimal bleeding and swelling after the procedure and the health of the tooth is, preserved when a cavity is, removed. Laser dentistry techniques have completely revolutionized the way, how both a family dentist and patients perceive dentistry.

Donald still in the lead!

Donald-Trump-campaign-600x300Washington (CNN)Donald Trump continues to lead the field of Republican presidential candidates in the first national poll conducted in the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks.

And in a head-to-head matchup with his closest rival Ben Carson, Trump bests the retired neurosurgeon on his ability to address the problems facing the country and to “get things done.”

But Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, bests the brash billionaire on the personality front, viewed by Republican and Republican-leaning voters as more honest and trustworthy, and as having a temperament more suitable to the presidency, according to a Bloomberg Politics poll released Thursday.

486640-460792-426243-afp-donald-trumpTrump is in first place nationally with 24% of support among Republican and Republican-leaning voters, according to the poll. Carson takes second place with 20% support, while Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, catches third place with 12%.

The poll also asked Republican voters to pick between Trump and Carson on questions that compared the top two candidates’ personalities, policy positions and competence.

Nearly three-quarters of the Republicans surveyed said they believe Trump “knows the most about how to get things done” and would be better at managing the economy than Carson. Two-thirds of those surveyed also said Trump would do more to address illegal immigration and more than half said he would be better prepared to combat Islamic terrorism than Carson.

But Carson bested his billionaire rival on personality traits, with those surveyed calling him more caring, trustworthy and honest.

Nearly seven in 10 said Carson has a better temperament to be president than Trump.

And more than 60% said Carson is more honest and trustworthy and cares more about “people like you” when compared to Trump. And 62% put more faith in Carson’s ability to work effectively with Congress than Trump’s.

The poll did a similar candidate-to-candidate comparison with the new two candidates, Rubio and the fourth-place finisher Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, who snagged 9% of support in the Bloomberg Politics survey.

The results were more even between those two candidates though Rubio generally bested Cruz, a hardline conservative who is staking his candidacy on his ideological bona fides and no-compromise mentality.

The poll’s Republican respondents picked Rubio over Cruz in looking at which candidate has the better temperament to be president, would work more effectively with Congress, and has the right values to lead the country.

Cruz beat out Rubio as the candidate who would do more to solve the problem of illegal immigration.

But the two candidates were in a dead heat on issues like managing the economy, knowing best how to get things done and combating Islamic terrorism.
