Dental lasers can be used in numerous dental treatments, including teeth whitening, gum reshaping, cavity removal, and to harden the bonding materials used in fillings. They are also used to remove bacteria from periodontal pockets.
What are the advantages of laser dentistry?
Surgical lasers are far more precise that traditional many dental treatments, and allow our dental team to conserve more bone and tooth tissue.
For this reason, lasers help to minimize the bleeding and swelling that often result from surgical procedures. This results in less discomfort than there would be with traditional methods.
Because laser dentistry is more comfortable, it can eliminate the need for local anesthetic. And since local anesthetic is not required, we can now perform procedures that once required multiple appointments during a single appointment.
