Dental Lasers: High Technologies for Everyone
In the Wonder of Technology TV show on
NTV TV-channel the journalists are trying to answer the question: how can we
find significant achievements in technology among the usual things we come
across? Where is a line between great advertising and true innovations? In the
story devoted to dentistry the authors emphasized the use of lasers in the
dental work. Their independent research assessed the laser dentistry as
a state-of-the-art and advanced technology. To present equipment at the peak
development in this area, the erbium and diode systems by
Biolase, an American company, were chosen.
Technologies, Biolase provides an access to,
change our idea of dentistry. The use of laser for comprehensive dental
treatment expands possibilities of dentistry and improves the quality of dental
care. In this case, even the patient, not being a medical professional, can
easily feel the difference between the laser and traditional dentistry.
Andrey, the main character of the Wonder of Technology
story, tested the latest developments the dentists can offer nowadays.
Together with the shooting team he visited several clinics in Moscow. However,
after shooting in the Unident Dental Clinic on
the South-West, where Oxana Grigorievna
Gavrishova under strict supervision of the TV camera treated his advanced
caries without any anesthesia, Andrey sincerely confessed that he was
surprised. The entire shooting team could assess condition of his tooth before
and after the treatment. The dentist uploaded images of the tooth, made by the
in-built intraoral camera of Skema
6 (Castellini) unit, to the monitor. Treatment by
Waterlase iPlus laser took 10 minutes only! However, Andrey was surprised not
so much by the result as by the process itself. Standing in front of the
dentist’s office he could not believe that he would not feel any pain while
“drilling” his tooth by the laser. The patient experienced no slightest
discomfort which he shared with the journalists after the experiment.

After the shooting was over, Oxana
Grigorievna gave the patient extensive advice on the health of
his teeth and recommended further treatment. As Andrey confessed later, she was
the most competent and attentive dentist he had ever met.
Treatment by a dental laser gives both the doctor and the
patient incomparable advantages and comfort. But when we are speaking about the
“wonders of technology”, the quality of that technology which predetermines the
result comes to the fore. Biolase developments are acknowledged all over the
world as leading in this trend in dentistry and, according to specialists, will
soon be used in every dentist’s office.
The laser is really a magic wand. It is used to create
special effects and if you got the wave length just a little bit changed, it
will become invisible but will be able to cut bones. Artem Bakanov, a laser
dentistry specialist, showed us how it happens on the pulled out teeth. We put
on glasses to protect eyes from the rays.
The red light is there for the dentist only, to ensure the
accuracy. The laser which cannot be seen transfers the energy to water. It
causes micro-explosions of its bubbles and destroys only damaged tooth areas.
Nerve endings are located deeper, and during treatment by a usual dental drill
they are shaken, overheated, and…suffer which does not happen when the laser is
used. And the majority of the customers do not feel any pain during this
ARTEM BAKANOV, laser dentistry specialist
The laser is the best alternative to the dental drill and
essential in cases when anesthesia is contraindicated, for example, in pregnant
Andrey has not visited a dentist for a long time. And he
would never go to the dentist’s office but for the toothache. His recollections
of the drill machine were so bad that once he learned about the laser cure he
decided to pay the extra price without hesitation. Laser treatment cost about
25% more, however, he was satisfied: his advanced caries was cured and no
injections were needed.
Nowadays, the laser can replace not only a dental drill but
also a scalpel in the dentistry. Using this chicken carcass, Andrey and I are
going to show the laser effect on soft tissues, mucous membrane and gums in the
And now a piece of dark medical humor: using a laser scalpel
Artem easily wrote the name of our show by the cuts on the chicken skin. We
could see how precise the cuts are… To sum it up, the laser dental treatment is
a real wonder of technology.
