Laser dentistry can be used for the following purposes, and more:
- Treating gum disease. The lasers can be used to remove bacteria and reshape gums while root canal procedures are underway.
- Teeth whitening procedures. Our laser can be used to enhance teeth whitening by activating peroxide bleaching solutions, thereby speeding up the overall process.
- Biopsy procedures. Our lasers can remove tiny pieces of tissue to check for pathology, remove mouth lesions, and relieve pain associated with canker sores.
- Removing tooth decay. The lasers are capable of removing decayed tooth substance and preparing the surrounding area for a filling, crown, or other material.
The benefits of laser dentistry are endless and include:
- Procedures performed using lasers generally do not require stitches or sutures due to their noninvasive nature.
- Many laser dentistry procedures do not require anesthesia since nearly all of them are painless.
- Bacterial infections are minimized because the laser is a beam of intense energy that sterilizes the site.
- Surrounding tissues are rarely affected
- Laser sites typically heal faster
