Laser dentistry provides a number of advantages, from improved treatment accuracy to decreased recovery times. Laser dentistry is used to treat gum disease, tooth decay, and other common dental issues. The laser is precise, which means that it targets your problem areas without damaging surrounding tissue. Laser dentistry also has the benefit of enhanced comfort, as it reduces the amount of pain or discomfort often associated with dental treatments.
What Are the Benefits of Laser Dentistry?
Dental lasers are used to clean and treat the teeth and gums, remove damaged tissue, and reshape the gums. Laser dentistry makes many dental procedures easier, faster, and more comfortable. This includes procedures that might have been painful in the past, such as cavity treatments or root canal therapy. Laser dentistry is also commonly used for cosmetic procedures, such as gum contouring, teeth whitening, and smile makeovers.
What Should I Expect During Laser Dentistry Treatment?
Before your procedure begins, we’ll apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment site. This anesthetic will numb the area so that you feel little to no discomfort during treatment. Then, we will direct a dental laser to the treatment site to perform the procedure. Laser dentistry procedures are precise and minimally invasive.
Is Laser Dentistry Painful?
Many patients mistake laser dentistry for traditional dentistry. While both methods are effective, lasers actually work faster, reduce heat, and don’t require anesthesia. Plus, most patients report that laser dentistry procedures are more comfortable than traditional procedures.
Laser dentistry can be used for many procedures from fillings to teeth whitening and is especially beneficial for patients with dental anxiety. Laser dentistry is minimally invasive, requires less anesthetic, and causes less bleeding and sensitivity.
