THIRD MOLAR EXTRACTION

Also known as wisdom teeth extraction, a wisdom tooth or third molar is one of the three molars per quadrant of the human dentition. It is the most posterior of the three. Wisdom teeth generally erupt between the ages of 17 and 25. Most adults have four wisdom teeth, one in each of the four quadrants, but it is possible to have fewer or more, in which case the extras are called supernumerary teeth. Wisdom teeth commonly affect other teeth as they develop, becoming impacted. They are often extracted when or even before this occurs.

TMJ PAIN TREATMENT

TMJ disorders cause tenderness and pain in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) — the joint on each side of your head in front of your ears, where your lower jawbone meets your skull. This joint allows you to talk, chew and yawn. In most cases, pain and discomfort associated with TMJ disorders can be alleviated with self-managed care or nonsurgical treatments such as laser therapy.



APHTHOUS ULCER TREATMENT

An aphthous ulcer begins as a small round or oval shaped red area. The sore typically ruptures within a day or two, then a loosely attached white or yellow membrane will start to cover it. Canker sores generally heal on their own within a couple of weeks. Diode laser is recommended to spped up the healing process of aphthous ulcers.

FRENOTOMY/FRENECTOMY

Frenectomy is the removal of a frenulum, a small fold of tissue that prevents an organ in the body from moving too far. It can refer to frenula in several places on the human body. It is related to frenuloplasty, a surgical alteration in a frenulum. Done mostly for orthodontic purposes, a frenectomy is either performed inside the middle of upper lip, which is called labial frenectomy, or under the tongue, called lingual frenectomy. Frenectomy is a very common dental procedure that is performed on infants, children, and adults. A similar procedure frenulotomy is where a tight frenulum may be relieved by making an incision in the tight tissue, this procedure can be done using laser therapy.



EXPOSURE OF UNERUPTED TEETH

Exposing unerupted teeth can regularly help orthodontic treatment and accelerate the way that the teeth will move. In a few patients, teeth don’t eject and should be uncovered with the goal that Orthodontic machines can be connected to them. These strategies can be done amid the orthodontic treatment time frame. Sometimes orthodontic sections are attached to the unerupted tooth so the tooth can be moved into the right position with orthodontic brackets. The advantage of exposing an unerupted tooth using Diode laser is that patients will have less pain and more comfort.

GINGIVECTOMY

Gingivectomy is the most common procedure performed with dental lasers, Rapid healing and reduced pain are commonly seen post operatively and patients rarely need periodontal packing or sutures.
