Dental Lasers Market Introduction & Overview
Dental lasers involve the use of specialized lasers to perform several dental procedures. Theycan be implemented for an array of soft &hard tissue dental procedures. Hard tissue lasers are more effective for cutting through tooth structures as the laser wavelength is highly absorbable by hydroxyapatite (calcium phosphate salt found in teeth and bone) and water. Hard tissue lasers are often used for repair of worn down dental fillings, shaping of teeth for composite bonding, and removal of small amounts of tooth structure.Also, they are used to seal off the tubules that cause hot/cold sensations positioned along the root portion of the tooth. Soft tissue lasers have a wavelength that is highly absorbable by hemoglobin and water, resulting in the easy management of soft tissues. Soft tissue lasers reshape gum tissues and are used to lengthen crowns by reshaping gum tissue. Also, they are used to remove soft tissue folds due to poorly fitting dentures and perform laser frenectomies that improve speech impediments.
The dental lasers market is driven by factors such as rapid urbanization, technological advancements in the dental sector, growingcosmetic dental practices and early detection of cavities. Moreover,minimal postoperative pain following the use of laser, faster healing of soft tissues, capabilities to kill bacteria located in the cavity and elimination of the need for local anesthetic injection are further adding to growth of the dental lasers market.
Moreover, minimal postoperative discomfort after laser use, rapid soft tissue recovery, capable of killing cavity-based bacteria, and reducedneed for local anesthetic injection are also contributing to developmentsinthedental lasers market.
However, the adverse impacts on dental pulp and effects ontooth surfacesare hampering growth of the dental laser market to a certain extent.
