Toronto dental laser therapy has become an important part of the modern practice. Research indicates that up to 30% of modern dental offices use this technology. There are several important benefits that need to be considered.
For example, laser technology reduces the amount of time a patient needs to be in the chair. As well, their discomfort is minimized because suturing is not necessary. In many cases, laser technology does away with the need for anaesthesia.
There are various applications. More needs to be done to educate both dentists and hygienists about the uses of Toronto dental laser therapy. Presently, many practices only think it can be used for periodontal disease and frenectomy.
Continued education is one of the keys. DTI offers a variety of excellent courses. We are different from the competition in that we offer unique hands-on training and overviews.

There are three different types to choose from. Soft tissue lasers have a specific area they excel in. Hard tissue lasers as well as other laser choices have different specialty areas.
The most common lasers used for dental practices are the diode variety. There are several reasons these are considered one of the top choices including their small size and manoeuvrability. As well as being able to cover a variety of different procedures, their cost is generally fairly low.
This type of laser was first introduced in the 1990s as a practical tool for dentistry.
In the last 20 years there have been many innovations made in the field. The modern laser can be used as a practical application for every day dentistry. Some of the applications for soft diode lasers that are commonly used include:
- Biopsies. Because laser technology is so efficient and effective, it can be used here.
- Bleaching of teeth. This technology is also effective for cosmetic purposes. It is virtually painless and very efficient. Marketing it to patients is much easier than with other methods like trays.
- Bone lesions. Laser technology can also be used for more surgical procedures.
Of course it’s important to get the right kind of instruction regardless of the application you find for lasers. That’s why our Toronto dental laser therapy courses are industry leading.
