What is Laser treatment and how does it work?

A laser is an instrument that produces a very narrow, intense beam of light energy. When laser light comes in contact with tissue, it causes a reaction. The light produced by the laser can remove or shape tissue.

 

Are Lasers used in dentistry?

Yes, lasers have been used in dentistry since 1990. Lasers can be used as a safe and effective treatment for a wide range of dental procedures and are often used in conjunction with other dental instruments.

 

What are the benefits in using dental Lasers?

There are several advantages to using lasers in dentistry that will allow the patient to enjoy a more relaxed dental experience.

 Here are some of the major benefits associated with laser dentistry:

- Certain laser procedures do not require anesthesia

- Dental lasers may reduce tooth sensitivity by sealing tubules (located on the root of the tooth) that are responsible for hot and cold tooth sensitivity

- Bacterial infections are minimized because the high-energy beam sterilizes the area being worked on

- Laser procedures can be more precise and reduce post-operative sensitivity and healing times associated with traditional therapies

- Procedures performed using soft tissue dental lasers may not require stitches

- Laser dentistry minimizes bleeding because the high-energy light beam aids in the clotting of the exposed blood vessels
