New dental laser developments

New dental laser developmentsNew dental laser developments are showing possible additional benefits, with the potential strengthening of tooth enamel. The invention of the laser in the sixties has helped to advance dental treatment dramatically. Although the initial lasers were unable to be of any benefit, developments in the technology made them more user-friendly for dental professionals. Lasers are often used for removing soft tissue in the mouth. It now seems that there is another possible use for the humble laser.

Researcher, Peter Rechmann, a professor at UCSF School of Dentistry believes that they are on the brink of making a revolutionary breakthrough. Professor Rechmann (PhD) and his team have spent many years researching and developing laser dentistry with the ultimate goal of stopping cavities before they occur.

The laser is also a great alternative to the drill. The dental drill is a terrifying prospect for some dental patients. Therefore, this new laser development could make dental treatment much more accessible and also very beneficial. Professor Rechmann believes that laser dentistry will soon be more commercially available. Watch this space!

New test for dental implant suitability

           New test for dental implant suitability.

A new test for dental implant suitability is currently being trialled. Biomechanical testing of dental implants and tissue will be able to help analyse the potential implant site. This will, therefore, help to determine whether the implant could be successful or not, and why. This screening could massively increase the success of dental implant fixtures by assessing and analysing the connection between the body and biomaterials. What is more, the testing will help manufacturers develop more innovative and appropriate designs and products while keeping costs down.

A newly derived test will also mimic the environment that the implant would be fitted into. This includes changes in acidity levels, temperature, bacterial presence, and vibrations and movement that simulate chewing. This type of test will see how well the fixture responds to these added pressures and what the hot spot areas are.

Michael Gasik, one of the review authors and researchers at Aalto University Foundation in Finland also added. “This drastically reduces the time and effort required for clinical tests.” Watch this space!
