Major applications for use of the ‘Doctor Smile’ diode laser


The diode laser allows the root surfaces to be decontaminated, so after irradiation the periodontal pocket remains sterile. With the use of a fibre, places which are very difficult to access for curettage can be treated. Subsequently, the periodontal pockets are irradiated, during which firmly attached calculus on the root surfaces are dried and loosened. These can then be easily removed using Gracey curettes. Following curettage, laser irradiation is applied once more, in which there is coagulation in blood vessels and a reduction in bacterial numbers. In addition, the cervix dentis is desensitised because the laser closes dental tubules. The recovery period for this kind of treatment is significantly shorter because the laser irradiation carries energy to the tissues. This also significantly reduces post operative problems.


In endodontic treatment, the laser causes a 99% reduction in microbial pathogens. There is also a decontamination of infected lateral canals (apical ramifications). Organic substances are completely removed and protein coagulation occurs in dental tubules.


The laser doesn’t just replace retractable fibre cutters, but is much more effective, professional, gentle and comfortable in comparison to conventional methods in achieving a clear and quality impression in the sulcus area. The course of the treatment is completely without bleeding, the edge for the restoration can be seen much more clearly, so that the complete laboratory phase and final treatment results are of significantly higher quality.


Another area of use for high quality, gentle and patient need focused dental lasers is desensitisation, for surgery or generally for sensitive teeth or cervix dentis. Irradiation of oversensitive cervix dentis at a distance of roughly two millimetres results in the ‘sealing’ of dental canals. This closure of tubules results in a reduction of tooth sensitivity of more than 90%.

Laser-supported whitening

Laser irradiation significantly speeds up the whitening process. Highly intensive diode laser light significantly supports the whitening process when using a highly concentrated whitening gel. In contrast to other methods of whitening, you can achieve significant tooth whitening immediately after your first treatment. For smaller colour changes, often only one patient visit to the clinic is necessary, in which the required perfect results can be achieved in a period of just one to two hours. A benefit here is less time spent in the clinic, a shorter patient treatment time, and a reduced time for laser use and irradiation exposure. This minimises the risk of temporary high tooth sensitivity. One laser-supported whitening session takes an average of just 20-30 minutes. This generally needs to be repeated two to three times.

Other option for laser application

Other options for use of the Star diode laser are retraction of tissue in surgery and treatment of tooth caries, in treating ulcers, herpes infections and many other applications.
