What Is Laser Dentistry?

Posted .

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.

Did you know that laser dentistry has become more popular because using lasers instead of the drill can put many patients at ease? Lasers are also extremely useful because they allow dentists to affect a targeted area precisely while minimizing damage to other parts of your mouth. Patients who are treated with a laser also tend to bleed less and can expect to heal more quickly.

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.
