The Benefits of Laser Dentistry
Dental lasers use concentrated and precise light waves to remove soft tissues. This method creates no friction or heat, which are the main sources of discomfort during dental procedures. Patients will also experience minimal bleeding during dental laser procedures, making for a more comfortable experience overall.
Lasers also completely sanitize treatment areas, removing infected tissue and neutralizing bacteria. This thorough method streamlines the healing process. Our patients experience faster healing times using this contemporary method. Not only do patients heal faster, but the tissues heal better with less incidence of reinfection. Bacteria won’t re-infect the tissues with proper aftercare. Lasers encourage tissues to clot during a procedure, and our bodies use this clotted tissue to grow new, healthy tissue on top.
How Dental Lasers Work
Dental lasers focus light waves and direct energy directly into the tissue. Lasers use these light waves to remove water that’s inside the cells of your tissues without damaging enamel, bone, or hard tissues in the process. They are incredibly precise, and the strength of the laser can be adjusted to treat different kinds of tissue, including infected gums or extraneous growths. This keeps teeth and bone safe from harm, while affecting only targeted tissues.
Hard-tissue lasers can cut through bone and teeth to complete more complex procedures, like extractions or root canal therapy.
