Transcript

  • 1. A LASER SMILE Aesthetic crown lengthening is a technically demanding endeavour that requires higher degree of precision than what may be achieved with a scalpel blade. Soft-tissue diode lasers offer unprecedented levels of precision while achieving excellent hemostasis and faster healing compared to electrosurgery and traditional scalpel .Slide No. 1 Dr. Harleen Kaur. Poster No.14
  • 2. MODE OF APPLICATION Contact mode Noncontact mode Output power modes Continuous wave PulsedSlide No. 2 Dr. Harleen Kaur. Poster No.14
  • 3. Generations of Diode lasersGeneration First Second ThirdWavelength 810-830 nm 980 nm 940 nmHemostasis Medium High Very HighBiostimulation High Medium MediumCutting in Slow Fast Fastcontact modeAblates in non No Yes Yescontact mode Slide No. 3 Dr. Harleen Kaur. Poster No.14
  • 4. Advantages Over Conventional ProceduresDry and bloodless surgeryInstant sterilization of surgical siteReduced bacteremiaIncreased patient comfortFaster healing Slide No. 4 Dr. Harleen Kaur. Poster No.14
  • 5. Disadvantages Carbonization Ocular injury Loss of tactile feedback in non contact mode Higher cost than traditional methods Diode lasers can not ablate hard tissuesSlide No. 5 Dr. Harleen Kaur. Poster No.14
  • 6. Conclusion Diode Lasers are compact and reliable surgical instruments which are suitable alternative to conventional aesthetic crown lengthening techniques in terms of clinical effectiveness and practicality and would be a welcome addition to armamentarium of a dentist if a suitable protocol could be applied to it minimizing collateral damage.Slide No. 6 Dr. Harleen Kaur.
