The addition of lasers to the dental field has enabled dentists to perform many procedures that have been around for a long time with several added benefits for the patient. Laser Dentistry is used in several procedures to improve results while preserving the health of teeth and gums. It is most commonly used in procedures involving the soft tissue in the mouth.
Lasers are incredibly efficient in treating periodontal disease, gum disease, ulcers, or removing excess gum tissue. Laser treatment can reduce bleeding during procedures and cause less discomfort than traditional surgical instruments. However, laser dentistry may also cause a longer healing period and create slight discoloration of the gums.
Lasers are most commonly used in teeth whitening procedures, setting restorative dentistry, sealing crowns and fillings, and detecting dental decay. If you would like to know if laser dentistry would be a good option for your dental care, call our office today to schedule a consultation.
