Very often patients come to us and ask: “Doctor, after so many years, haven’t they found an alternative to these nasty machines?” The answer is now YES – the dental lasers. How does it sound to have a tooth treatment without pain, without touching the tooth, without the unpleasant noise and vibrations from the turbine, and surgery without scalpel and bleeding? All this is possible since lasers represent a revolutionary new method.
Nowadays lasers are expanding the boundaries of treatment and allowing the dental practitioner to perform precise, selective clinical interventions. With them, dentists perform a wide range of procedures in soft and hard dental tissues that often do not require anaesthesia and the patient feels comfortable after and during the treatment. The postoperative period is characterized by an extremely fast recovery process.
Dental lasers are an indispensable tool when a surgical treatment is required (frenulotomy, gingivoplasty, removal of mucous aphthae and herpes), as well as in case of pregnant or hypertensive patients. This is because soft tissues are simultaneously removed and coagulated. That way, the surgical interventions are performed without a scalpel, without bleeding, and without the need for sutures. This gives the dental practitioner better visibility over the operative field and consequently an opportunity to achieve better therapeutic results, and reduces the postoperative recovery time by half.
Statistics show that 97% of laser-treated patients prefer it to conventional turbine filing or the so-called dental drills. Exceptional results are also observed in children’s dental medicine.
Collaboration between different types of lasers with various wavelengths gives the best opportunity for our patients, and modern implantology is unthinkable without lasers.
The great therapeutic advantages and range of treatment – caries lesions, parodontopathy (gum diseases), aesthetic gingivoplasty, physiotherapy and many others have made lasers an indispensable tool in dental medicine.
This is the reason why EO Dent Dental Clinic provides to its patients the full range of world-renowned laser dental equipment, and the health of our patients is ensured by experienced specialists who have completed a full training course at the University of Laser Treatment in Aachen, Germany.
HELBO equipment is used in almost every field of dental medicine and is considered one of the best treatment methods of our time. It is used for widespread periodontal diseases, as well as in implantology. It has a strong influence in the fight against pathogenic bacteria, and any infection in the oral cavity can be eliminated very quickly. Prevents inflammation during the recovery period after dental implantation.
Recent tests indicate that the success rate of deactivating pathogenic bacteria is 99% when using the HELBO therapy. They are also the main cause of periodontal diseases. Statistics show that 90 % of the population have problems with bleeding and sore gums, receded gums and loosened teeth, periodontal tissues inflammation, halitosis, oedemas in the mouth, osteonecrosis, etc.
The good news is that with the HELBO therapy it is now possible to solve these problems.
EO Dental Clinic recommends not ignoring even seemingly minor diseases of the oral cavity. This is because the microorganisms causing the problems are present throughout the body and affect it very badly, causing a number of serious diseases, including heart attack, stroke, diabetes, etc.
A low-level laser is a source of energy that, when introduced into the body, affects cell elements that are sensitive to this radiation without causing any destructive action. Laser therapy with low-level lasers (RED and IR) enables deliberate action on the pathological process, using certain modes of the laser procedures. The wavelength is from 626 to 905 nm.
IR infrared therapeutic laser
IR has a pronounced analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect in great depth. Preferred for pain syndrome and deep bone and joint inflammations. Infrared radiation accelerates in depth the biological processes, eliminates vascular spasm, improves tissue metabolism and oxidation processes.
RED therapeutic laser
RED radiation affects the dilatation of blood vessels and increases circulation. These changes contribute to the elimination of venous stasis, reduction of oedemas in tissues, the regenerative process by cellular differentiation and recovering of their functional activity. The low-level laser is extremely useful in dental medicine.

The Waterlase MD Turbo high intensity laser with a wavelength of 2780 nm. YSGG i Plus enables very good soft tissue coagulation with very precise water control and more than 1000W at 100 pulses per second. i Plus Er, Cr YSGG cuts the tissues by affecting the water molecule. The laser energy raises the temperature of the water, resulting in a hydropropulsion effect.
High intensity lasers are a tool that emits a narrow intensive ray of light energy. This energy interacts with the water in the human tissues, increasing the temperature of the water molecule. That way, the damaged carious tissues are evaporated and the pain is eliminated due to the dehydration of the dentinal tubules (blocking of the nerve conductivity). Thus, the need for anaesthesia is almost completely eliminated. The curious thing is that through energy regulation, the infrared beam can differentiate between diseased and healthy tissue. It heats precisely the areas affected by caries which are softened by the bacteria. The beam bounces off from healthy solid areas, so it only evaporates the affected part of the tooth, without damaging the healthy enamel. It is the first dental instrument to work with minimal invasion and selectively.
High intensity lasers are used for periodontal diseases, sterilization of root canals, fistulas and abscesses, as well as in bloodless surgical procedures (scalpel-free surgery), children’s dental medicine, and caries treatment. They are also of great use in implantology for implant exposure, and the incision during surgeries is very precise.
The diode laser (pen) is extremely useful in dental medicine. It enables laser soft tissue removal:
laser curettage for periodontal diseases
pre-print retraction, which ensures great precision in the making of all structures in the dental laboratory
The optimum wavelength for a diode laser is 810 nm. It has a higher affinity for haemoglobin and melanin, which ensures faster and better coagulation for minimal bleeding and shorter treatment duration.
No risk of injury to healthy tissues. The use of lasers allows access to the lesions without having to deal with unwanted contaminants of the gingival sulcus and the interstitial fluid. This technique uses a non-surgical method of ablation of the damaged gum epithelium and ensures superior control of haemorrhages. 1.2 W is used to remove unwanted gingiva.
