The Picasso+ and Laser Dentistry – How Does It Work?

Dr. Bagai and his assistants at DuPage Dental Smiles take pride in using the latest dental technology to provide their patients with the very best possible outcomes to their dental procedures. One of the instruments used in many of the procedures they perform is the Picasso+ dental laser, a state-of-the-art dental instrument that is endorsed, celebrated, and used by dentists around the world.

What is laser dentistry?

Before discussing the many uses of laser instruments like the Picasso+, it would be helpful to briefly explain exactly what laser dentistry is.

Laser is an acronym that stands for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. That’s a rather fancy way of saying that an instrument such as the Picasso+ emits light energy in a very narrow, concentrated beam that is used in a wide range of dental procedures.

How does laser dentistry work?

Stated briefly, the concentrated light emitted by a laser produces a reaction when it comes into contact with soft tissue, allowing the dentist to remove or reshape this tissue. Among its many applications in the field of dentistry, lasers can be used to:

· Reshape gum tissue

· Remove inflamed gum tissue

· Remove muscle attachments restricting lip or tongue movement

· Prepare tooth enamel for composite bonding

· Reduce the pain associated with cold sores and cankers

· Repair certain worn-down fillings

The Picasso+

Dentists have been using lasers to treat dental problems since the mid-1990s, and the Picasso+ used by Dr. Bagai is one of the most advanced and versatile dental lasers, found, as we said, in dental clinics around the world.

In addition to the dental conditions and procedures listed above, the Picasso+ can also be used to:

· Treat gingivitis and other forms of gum disease

· Drain abscesses

· Whiten teeth

· Perform many more procedures

The benefits of using the Picasso+ in performing these various procedures include:

· Reduced pain and less bleeding

· Less damage to surrounding tissue

· Faster healing

· A reduced chance of infection
