What Is Laser Dentistry?

Laser dentistry is an exciting technology that allows us to treat a range of dental concerns in a less invasive way. They can be incorporated into a variety of different scenarios. For example, in advance of a filling, lasers can help treat a cavity by cleaning out decay. Lasers are also used in periodontal therapy to treat gum disease. While preserving more of the patient’s soft tissue than alternative methods, lasers remove infection, reshape the gums, and stimulate gum regeneration. Additionally, we can reduce the discomfort of severe canker sores with laser dentistry.

Benefits of Lasers in Dental Care

There are a number of benefits to using lasers in dentistry. As they deliver a less-invasive experience, treatments are considered to be less painful than they would be otherwise. They also result in less bleeding and swelling, with a faster recovery. In general, laser procedures amount to a more pleasant patient experience with no disconcerting sounds or sensations.
