The blue laser you are talking about is the blue LED light used by the orthodontist. It is used to polymerize the adhesives to fix the tooth brackets. The adhesive is unpolymerized (meaning not in the final state and is still moldable according to needs) initially, and when the bracket is placed, and position is finalized, light is used to start the polymerization process. Once it is done, the adhesive becomes fixed and keeps the bracket in place.
This LED light cannot be used for any other purpose and is not a replacement option for scaling. Scaling is a manual process. Once calculus is formed and deposited on the teeth, there is no other method to remove them except manually removing them via hand scalers or ultrasonic scalers.
However, prior to calculus, if oral hygiene is maintained, the incidence of calculus formation can be delayed up to a certain extent. However, oral hygiene is not the only factor responsible for calculus formations. Are you having any toothache issues as well? Please elaborate on the condition and its history for better and more precise advice.
I hope this helps.
