What is Laser Dentistry?
Laser technology has come a long way, and it is commonly used in many different dental procedures. We use laser technology during our filling procedures as a way to remove decay from a tooth that is compromised. Lasers are painless and often require absolutely no anesthetic. You won’t have to hear or feel the pressure of a typical dental drill during treatment.
Why would Laser Dentistry be needed?
These revolutionary lasers can be used for a variety of different procedures in the office. For a filling procedure, lasers are used to remove the decay from the tooth and prepare the tooth to receive the new filling material. For patients with gum disease, diseased tissue can be eliminated with the use of lasers. We may even use lasers in conjunction with whitening treatments to improve results.
What are the benefits of Laser Dentistry?
Lasers are virtually painless and do not cause any discomfort when in use. What this means for the patient is that you will not need a local anesthetic prior to treatment. If you have a fear of needles, this is wonderful news and can help to eliminate the anxiety when coming into the office. You won’t hear the buzz or hum of a traditional dental drill when lasers are in use, so there’s less panic over hearing this sound.
What can you expect with Laser Dentistry?
Laser dentistry is quick, easy and effective. For a simple dental filling procedure, the decay is removed from the tooth using laser technology. For gum disease treatment, we will use the laser to eradicate any diseased tissue from the pockets that have formed around the teeth. Lasers are safe, effective and eliminate the pain that you might be experiencing with traditional drills and methods. Our goal is to provide you with an easier way for you to come into the office and receive the treatment that you need.
