Over the course of the past weekend, Dr Doshi talked about how Lasers were overtaking the dentist drill to a group of established highly qualified dentists.
His seminar ran over due to the excitement it was stirring amongst the dentists. There was also an exhibition of all the latest innovative Dental Lasers that dentists could now use.
This proved to be an eye-opener with regards to the possibilities dentistry now offered patients.
Dr Doshi discussed the advantages of lasers in dentistry and how the end result was far superior due to the simple but ingenious results that were created.
“Leading dentists have been searching for methods of creating beautiful smiles that involve pain-free and quick techniques for a long time. Dental lasers are proving to be a great solution.”
Dental lasers have carved themselves a niche in dentistry and their multiple uses have diversified the options available to patients today.
At The Perfect Smile Studios, dental lasers are used in various situations to facilitate an enhanced result and provide more comfort during dental procedures. They provide a multitude of treatment options that would have otherwise involved long-term expensive surgery.
Examples of the use of dental lasers include:
- Treating ulcers and cold sores
- Laser teeth whitening
- Removal of dental decay
- Wound healing
- Improving gum health
- Root canal treatments
At The Perfect Smile Studios, we use dental lasers on all of the above but they now play a major role in general dentistry as well. Dental lasers are used in dental work to improve the aesthetics of the front teeth and also the appearance of the gums to make them look more symmetrical.
“In fact, our dentists also use lasers on fillings instead of the dentist drill. This is because lasers can be used to remove dental decay as well.”
Dental lasers can be used to eliminate bacteria (as in root canal treatments) or recontour your gums to improve aesthetics. The final solution is dependent on the treatment plan of your choice and the goals you are trying to achieve.
The investment for dental lasers can be extremely high but the return on investment for the patient, practice and the dentist is extremely high. These include :
- shorter treatment times
- increased precision in dental treatment
- improved in options of treatments available
- reduced patient discomfort and healing time
- improved treatment results
These fundamental increase the growth of the practices, and increase the word of mouth referrals to the practice because of increased patient satisfaction.

The dental drill has been a vital tool for dentists in their mission to restore health and function to decayed or damaged teeth. It has also earned a reputation as one of the more frightening aspects of dentistry — the sound and sensations it produces can make even the bravest of patients nervous.
But the development and growing use of lasers by dentists for many dental procedures are reducing the use of this traditional dental tool.
For years, lasers have revolutionised the medical industry and now laser dentistry procedures are taking off.
However, anytime new technologies are introduced, people naturally will have questions. Here is a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs).
What is a laser? Lasers are beams of light that are a single wavelength and colour. A laser is an acronym derived from “Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation.”
