Enabling a Painless Smile
Author : Carol Moore
It may now be regarded as a part of History, that decay detection, has been highly meticulous and a time consuming process, resulting in sessions that never seem to end. The major cause being the detection of a cavity, generally concealed inside the tiny gaps, only some are easily detected by mechanical methods. The Diagnodent laser detector: A blessingindisguise, the diagnodent laser cavity detection, a new method is taken advantage of by several dentists, a revolutionary approach in the detection of cavities, just taking the aid of a simple laser diode that compares reflection wavelength to a recognized healthy baseline wavelength, to identify decay. The Painless detection:
Initially, while adopting the new approach of the diagnodent laser cavity detection, the dentist tries to direct the laser onto a healthy tooth surface, to get the standard reading. The diode laser highlights all those probable areas where tooth decay may persist. On its way through the gaps, groove and crevices, it reflects a particular wavelength of fluorescent light. At the same time, the light is measured by the receptors, that get translated into an acoustic signal and electronically assessed; each time the laser manages to encounter an inconsistency between a tooth surface as well as a healthy baseline value, an emission of a different fluorescent light wavelength is stimulated. The Fast and Effective Laser Dentistry: Most of the users of dental lasers, have the conviction that this option of going for a laser dentistry, is much better, safer and less timeconsuming. Although it differs from traditional dentistry, several dental procedures that are conducted with the help of a dental laser, takes minutes, in the routine matters like teeth bleaching as well as decay removal, it being far less
invasive. Benefits of Dental Laser Treatment: The several benefits of diagnodent laser cavity detection includes faster healing, less bleeding, frenectomy, reduced swelling, excisional and incisional biopsis, root canals, cold sore treatments, removal of oral lesions, pediatric procedures, lack of needles or dental drills, proving itself to be a big blessing for the kids. After care in dental extraction:
More crucial than the surgery is at times the unbearable pain after dental extraction, often most dreaded; provided one follows the given instructions. The crucial part is the control of swelling, bleeding, comfort and most importantly the hygiene that have to be brought under control. Ice packs on the outer part of the face reduces swelling. To reduce the pain after dental extraction, it is advisable to avoid rinsing the mouth for at least 24 hours, changing the surgical gauze as frequently as possible. Medication as per the instructions is highly imperative, that will ensure lesser pain after dental extraction.
