ITS Dental Hospital Laser Treatment

Laser Treatment

The term LASER is an acronym for Light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. In today’s era of fast developing technologies and innovative ideas there is a need to practice a precise and effective treatment modality in dentistry, in order to overcome the drawbacks of conventional treatment options. Lasers can be opted as a treatment modality in all fields of dentistry, since it results in faster recovery and is painless, therefore, leading to good patient acceptance. Lasers provide a plethora of therapeutic applications, ranging from excision and ablation of keratotic and nonkeraotic lesions, pain management and biostimulation.  

ITS Dental Hospital Intralesional Injections

Intralesional Injections

An intralesional injection involves the administration of a drug directly into a lesion on or immediately below the mucosa. In dentistry, intralesional injections are given in a number of oral mucosal lesions such as Oral Submucous Fibrosis (OSMF), Oral Lichen Planus, Lichenoid reactions and  Pemphigus using a wide variety of drugs. Intralesional steroid injection such as dexamethasone, betamethasone, hydrocortisone and triamcinolone are usually given in above mentioned lesions, leading to reduction in erythema and burning sensation. Steroids cause inhibition of inflammation and also reduce the number of fibroblasts in cases of OSMF. In addition to this, intralesional injection of hyaluronidase are also administered which breaks down the collagen and thus improves the mouth opening in OSMF patients. Apart from this, placentral extracts injection has been found to be helpful in OSMF cases. Nowadays, intralesional PRP injections are also administered for the treatment of erosive lichen planus.
ITS Dental Hospital Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation [TENS]

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation [TENS]

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation [TENS] is used as a non-pharmacological method for pain control. It temporarily activates afferent nerves, thereby modulating pain. During TENS therapy, pulsed electrical current is generated and delivered across the intact skin surface via electrodes to stimulate superficial nerves for localized pain relief. TENS is commonly used by health professionals for the management of acute and chronic pain. It is effectively used in orofacial region to alleviate chronic pain associated with muscles, articular disc derangements, trigeminal neuralgia, and post herpetic neuralgia. Application of TENS increases the salivary flow rate in healthy individuals as well as in xerostomic patients. TENS is believed to have physiological (rhythmic contractions of muscles increases blood supply), neurological (electric stimulation inhibits pain conduction), pharmacological (releases endorphins) and psychological (placebo) effects.

ITS Dental Hospital Therapeutic Ultrasound


Unlike, ultrasound used for medical imaging, therapeutic ultrasound is used to deliver energy to deep tissue sites, via propagation of ultrasonic waves, to produce increases in tissue temperature. Therapeutic ultrasound decreases inflammation, increases vasodilatation and waste removal, accelerates lymph flow, and stimulates metabolism. Pain relief is theorized to be related to washout of pain mediators by increased blood flow, changes in nerve conduction, or alterations in cell membrane permeability that decreases inflammation. Ultrasound therapy is widely used as a therapeutic agent in relieving pain associated with Myofascial pain dysfunction syndrome (MPDS), Temporomandibular joint disorders and recurrent apthous stomatitis. Therapeutic” low intensity ultrasound is found effective in increasing pliability of oral mucosa and improving mouth opening in cases of Oral submucous fibrosis (OSMF).
