There are many indications for implementing laser devices in broad medical and dental settings, including oral surgery, arthroscopy, gastroenterology, general surgery, dermatology, and plastic surgery. The intended uses of laser devices include achieving hemostasis and the incision, excision, ablation, vaporization, and tissue coagulation.3 In dentistry, soft-tissue lasers may be implemented for a wide range of clinical applications, meeting the needs of periodontal, restorative, and orthodontic procedures.
Technology and Design
The NV PRO3 Microlaser was designed to meet increased demand for portable soft-tissue lasers. Its featherlight weight (i.e., 1.9 oz) and cordless, ergonomic design enhance portability and ease of use. This class IV laser device features a lithium-ion battery with over-and undercharged protection that delivers 30 minutes of continuous operation at 1.2 W of power. The plug-and-play system comes with 12 preset procedural settings for all periodontal, restorative, and orthodontic treatments; a wireless foot pedal; audible notifications; and disposable fiber tips. The soft-tissue diode laser is designed to deliver between 0.1 and 2.0 W of power in continuous wave or pulse mode and possesses a wavelength of 808 nm (± 5 nm).
The NV PRO3 Microlaser allows oral health professionals to perform more procedures in less time and with better results when compared with traditional methods.3 Patients also benefit from laser dentistry generally, as research indicates that lasers result in faster treatment with less overall discomfort.3 This translates to increased patient referrals and patients who are more willing to accept future dental treatment recommendations.
One of the greatest benefits of soft-tissue lasers is their ability to provide minimally invasive treatment for preventive and restorative dental procedures. The following two cases feature the NV PRO3 Microlaser used for troughing before capturing dental impressions and periodontal treatment by the dental hygienist. It is important to note that state dental practice acts vary, and it is the responsibility of the dental professional to remain updated on any laws about laser use.4
Clinical Case Report: Troughing
The NV PRO3 Microlaser is ideal for troughing before capturing impressions. In preparing the mandibular teeth for a conventional bridge (Figure 1), two options exist for retraction of the attached gingiva around the teeth: conventional retraction cord or use of a diode laser. The laser enables dentists to obtain blood-free retraction, replacing the time-consuming technique of retraction cord packing with a modality that is both efficient and effective.
To achieve retraction using the NV PRO3, the practitioner sets the diode laser to produce 1W at a continuous wave, then uses an initiated tip to trough the tissue around the margins of the crown preparation (Figure 2). The field remains dry, and the result is a complete, effective retraction (Figure 3). The final impression (Splash! Max, DenMat) clearly shows the prepared margins (Figure 4). This data is crucial for the fabrication of precision-fit restorations.
Using the diode laser for troughing results in predictable margins, no tissue recession, limited bleeding, limited patient discomfort, a quicker procedure, and precision impressions.
