Did you know that lasers have been used in dentistry for decades? However, recently laser dentistry has become more and more common. One of the main reasons for this is simply that patients tend to feel less anxious with a laser than they are with other dental tools. Laser dentistry also offers a number of other benefits.
Laser dentistry is popular because it offers a number of significant benefits. For instance, with laser dentistry, a dentist can focus their efforts more efficiently on a specific area of the mouth. This precision allows our dentist to perform many treatments you need while reducing damage done to surrounding tissue. If you’re treated with lasers, you could also expect to heal more quickly and to bleed less during your treatment.
Laser dentistry can also be used in a number of treatments. For example, tooth decay can actually be removed with a laser. Lasers can also be used to prepare your enamel, or the protective outer layer of your teeth, for having a filling placed. Lasers can also be used during the setting and curing of fillings. Gum disease and root canal therapy can also be done with lasers.
