The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the use of a variety of hard and soft tissue lasers for use in the dental treatments of adults and children. Hard tissue lasers have a wavelength that is highly absorbable by hydroxyapatite and water, which makes them more effective for cutting through tooth structure. The primary use of hard tissue lasers is to cut unto bone and teeth with extreme precision. They are often used in prepping or shaping the teeth for composite bonding, the removal of small amounts of tooth structure and the repair of certain worn down dental fillings.
Soft tissue lasers consist of a wavelength that is absorbable by water and hemoglobin, which is oxygenating protein in red blood cells. This makes soft tissue lasers more effective for soft tissue management. Soft tissue lasers penetrate the soft tissue while sealing blood vessels and nerve endings. This is the primary reason why many people experience virtually no post-operative pain following the use of a laser and allow the tissues to heal faster.
