Desensitisation dental laser is used to treat dental hypersensitivity. Dental sensitivity is most often caused by gum recession (when the gums migrate away from the enamel of a tooth). Tooth hypersensitivity is a frequent condition that causes discomfort and sometimes severe pain. This happens when the underlying tooth roots are exposed. These roots contain small pores (tubules) which lead directly to the nerve of the tooth. As a result pain, pressure, and hot and cold stimuli can travel down the tubules triggering the nerve. Gums usually recede due to poor oral hygiene or due to incorrect ways of brushing teeth.
Desensitizing medications are applied by dentists and seal the exposed microscopic pores in the dentin layer of teeth that cause sensitivity.
Desensitizing medications are applied to sensitive by the dentist. It is dispensed from a small bottle and applied with a fine brush.
If a patient is experiencing more than a mild sensitivity to temperature extremes or sweets, and the dentist has ruled out pulpitis (inflamed tooth pulp), tooth decay, infection, or gum disease as a cause, desensitizing medications may be used to seal the microscopic pores of exposed root surfaces.
As gums start to pull back and expose the dentin (a surface under the gums), you may suffer from sensitivity. This very soft layer is what makes up your tooth root and has tubules that lead to your tooth nerve. When you eat something too cold or hot or sweet, these tubules send signals to your nerve causing you pain.
There are multiple reasons why you experience sensitivity including:
Conventional desensitizing agents like professional pastes, toothpaste and mouthwashes aim to obliterate the exposed pores or tubules. At Bangalore Dental solutions and Implant center apart from the traditional ways, we have introduced pain-free Desensitization dental Laser treatment. Laser desensitization was introduced as an alternative efficient tool for the immediate treatment of tooth hypersensitivity. Lasers have been proven to be effective at decreasing or even eliminating dental sensitivity. It is a simple procedure which requires no anesthetic. It directs the laser energy into the sensitive areas and the laser suppresses the potential of the nerve fibers by eliminating the tubules. At our clinic we do this fast, cost effective and pain free procedure with high success rate.
