What Is Laser Dentistry?
Laser dentistry involves the use of advanced laser technology to perform various dental procedures, including soft tissue shaping and removal. The advantage of laser dentistry treatments is that they are more precise and affect less of the surrounding tissue than standard techniques, which means shorter procedure times and greater comfort for you.
So how does laser dentistry work? Our dentist will focus a narrow beam of light energy to target the treatment area, most commonly the gum tissue. Different wavelengths of light are used to address various dental issues, allowing for more precise treatment.
Here are some of the ways lasers are used in dentistry:
Tooth preparation - Lasers can effectively eliminate decayed enamel and shape the area when preparing a tooth for filling.
Reshaping soft tissue - If you have a gummy smile, lasers can be used to reshape the gum line, allowing for a more aesthetically pleasing smile. It can also be used to remove uncomfortable soft tissue folds.
Frenectomy - A stiff frenulum can damage gum tissue, affect speech, and result in smile misalignment. Laser dentistry can correct frenulum issues with minimal discomfort.
Treating periodontal disease - Lasers can be used to clean and remove bacteria and infected tissues from periodontal pockets.
The non-invasive precision of lasers reduces and potentially even eliminates the need for numbing. We use lasers to improve the treatment of both hard- and soft-tissue problems and to help provide you with a positive experience during dental procedures.
How Laser Dentistry Can Help Patients With Dental Phobias
If you have dental anxiety, you're not alone. A primary advantage of laser dentistry is that it allows for a gentler dental care experience. By performing laser dental treatments, we're able to eliminate many of the reasons people avoid going to the dentist. Lasers are quiet and provide a very different experience from traditional dental tools, helping patients feel more at ease during their visits.
- Reduce heat and vibration for more comfortable treatments
- Are more precise, minimizing the impact on healthy tissues
- Allow for faster treatment and recovery times
- Reduce pain, bleeding, and swelling during procedures
- Decrease sensitivity after a procedure
- Kill bacteria, resulting in fewer infections or post-operative complications
If you're worried about pain or discomfort, our dentist offers sedation options and numbing options when needed. Our ultimate goal is to ensure your general well-being, whether you're coming in for gum care or more extensive procedures. Your peace of mind remains one of our primary concerns.
