Vibration, heat and pressure are three of the primary reasons pain is associated with a traditional dental drill. Even the mere sound of it scares most. But the cutting of the teeth and gums need not be an experience of pain nor anxiety. Many dental treatments can now be performed with the utilization of a laser. Think about a dental procedure with less need for shots and fewer numb lips. Using a laser for your dental treatments also means less bleeding and swelling. Basically, it’s just a better way to get your dentistry done.
A laser enables us to remove enamel decay, bone and gum tissue with precision while leaving the surrounding areas totally intact. This method conserves more tooth structure, which leads to maintaining your teeth for a longer period of time.
Dental problems can be created when high speed drills cause hairline cracks in your teeth. Laser treatments reduce the chances of damage and minimizes trauma.
Due to its precise cutting action, lasers perform soft tissue treatments with very little or no bleeding. Also, there is less post-op swelling to have to deal with.
Consider this: With the elimination of shots and anesthesia, more cavity preps can be performed in just one visit. This leads to fewer dental appointments. Listen, we can hear a collective cheer from those who don’t like dental visits.
Lastly, lasers can be utilized in a wide range of dental treatments including root canals, cavity preparation and decay removal.
