What is Laser Dentistry?
Laser dentistry is a minimally invasive way to perform various dental procedures, including endodontic and periodontal treatments. Our dentist can remove or alter soft and hard dental tissue using a focused beam of light. Laser dentistry provides various benefits over traditional dentistry.
5 Benefits of Laser Dentistry
We'll explain what benefits you can expect with laser dentistry during your initial visit. One of the primary benefits is how comfortable you'll feel during treatment. The laser produces no pressure or vibrations and little heat, making it an ideal option for patients with dental anxiety. Some additional benefits you can expect with laser dentistry include, but are not limited to:
- Decreased bleeding during and following treatment.
- Reduced need for anesthesia.
- More of your natural tooth is preserved.
- Reduced requirement of stitches and sutures.
- Faster healing times.
Treating Cavities With Laser Dentistry
Traditionally, our dentists would treat a dental cavity by drilling out the decayed tissue. However, the sight and sound of a drill can be intimidating for some patients, especially children. Our laser emits minimal sound as it gently kills bacteria and removes the decayed enamel. Laser technology can make getting restorations like tooth fillings a smooth and seamless process and allows us to complete procedures without numbing injections.
Laser Dentistry for Reshaping Soft Tissue
During oral surgical procedures like gummy smile treatment, laser dentistry offers numerous benefits for your smile's soft tissue. The precision of the laser means that any structures near the treatment site aren't affected. In addition, the laser cauterizes as it treats, which does away with the need for stitches.
Improving Frenectomies with Laser Dentistry
Each year, thousands of children are born with a tight frenulum, which is also called tongue-tie. Not only can it interfere with formula or breastfeeding, but it can impair speech later on in life. During a traditional frenectomy, our dentist would make a small cut on the part of the tongue that connects it to the floor of the mouth and place stitches in the area. With laser dentistry, the laser cuts through the attachment gently and without the need for sutures. Laser dentistry speeds up the recovery time for frenectomies, letting your child get back to their normal life sooner.
Laser Dentistry FAQs
Laser dentistry can be unknown and confusing for most patients. As such, it's normal to have countless questions about the treatment. Our staff is here to answer your questions and help you decide whether laser dentistry is right for your smile. Some frequently asked questions include:
In most cases, anesthesia isn't necessary for laser dentistry treatment. The laser does not make physical contact with your mouth, so most patients tend to go through their procedure without being numbed. Additionally, the laser's ability to cauterize tissue means theirs little to no bleeding following treatment.
Our dentist will sit down with you during your initial visit to discuss your treatment options. From there, we'll alert you to any procedures that can be assisted with laser dentistry. Over the years, our laser dentistry offerings have grown to treat your entire smile.
With laser dentistry, it's possible to save teeth that would otherwise require extraction. However, it depends entirely on your unique oral situation. Some standard procedures where laser dentistry can save teeth include root canal therapy and gum disease treatment.
