Benefits of Laser Dentistry

Posted by DR. CHRISTINE Y. LEE on Jun 28 2022, 07:04 AM

Modernizing world and advanced technology have made our life much more comfortable than the traditional lifestyle. In the same way, it has brought lots of advancements in the field of dentistry. Laser dentistry is a modern method of dental treatment that offers many benefits to patients. Laser dentistry is safe, effective, and more comfortable than traditional dental treatment methods.

Advantages of Laser Dentistry

Quicker appointments

Laser dentistry uses beams of light energy for procedures, eliminating the need to use anesthesia in many cases. As a result, there is less bleeding, less pain, and shorter healing times. Laser dentistry can also effectively treat cavities without the need for drills or needles.

Less pain

Laser dentistry is more comfortable than many other dental techniques. You may require numbing injections and even sedation, but laser dentistry is virtually painless. Laser dentistry also decreases your chances of infection, bleeding, and swelling. Lasers can also treat soft tissues, such as gums and reshape your enamel into the ideal shape.

Fewer shots

The drill is only one of many tools used to perform dental work. With laser dentistry, the need for drilling is drastically reduced. Periodontal treatments, for instance, are completed with laser technology. Laser dentistry also comes with the added benefit of no shots.

Minimally invasive

Laser dentistry is a comfortable, minimally-invasive way to improve your smile. The laser beam is very precise, so your dentist can pinpoint and work on just one tooth at a time. Laser dentistry is extremely versatile and can be used to help eliminate tooth decay, mild gum disease, and even reshape and recontour gums.

No need for anesthesia

Laser dentistry is revolutionary because it accomplishes things never before possible with dental technology. Patients don’t need to worry about feeling any pain during dental procedures. The laser is able to remove gum tissue and penetrate deep into the tooth structure. It’s even able to remove decay from tooth structure.

Less bleeding and swelling

Some patients experience less bleeding and swelling after laser dentistry procedures. In addition, lasers often eliminate the need for incisions, sutures, and needles, so patients are less likely to experience pain or discomfort.

Quicker recovery time

Laser dentistry allows for quicker recovery times compared to traditional dentistry. The minimally invasive laser dentistry procedures don’t involve cutting, which means your gums won’t bleed, and you won’t need stitches. Patients also won’t experience any lingering numbness in the treatment area.

Better precision

When compared to traditional treatment methods, laser dentistry offers better precision. Dental lasers can cut through tooth enamel, gum tissue, and bone with a level of accuracy that’s tough to beat. When we use lasers to perform a variety of treatments, we’re often able to preserve more of the healthy tissue surrounding the affected area.
