What is laser dentistry and how does it work?
Lasers are created specifically for the delivery of intense energy in the form of a light beam that can be modified for a surprisingly wide variety of treatments and has advanced dental practices into the 21st century! In other words, we got what it takes to take out cavities with a laser beam.
Lasers are a non-invasive tool that reduces or eliminates the need for numbing. It is quieter compared with the noisy vibration of traditional dental drills. Those days of hearing the dental drill as you wait for your appointment are over. Kids can now breath easier these days.
The mist of tooth particles flying through the air while the dentist drills and files down your cavities have made the air cleaner to breath.
Did you know that lasers close your wounds as it goes along the surface of your gums and bones thus, causing speed healing? The process of cauterizing while incising tissue closes the sore, so we avoid stitches. Wounds heal pretty quickly in your mouth, and this laser procedure speeds it up even faster.
Because we are sealing as we go along the gums we prevent excessive bleeding. Keeping the area clean and free from blood really helps our team in minimizes the chance of infection, killing bacteria as we go and preventing infection. The advantage of using lasers also preserves more of the natural gum or tooth so very little scarring happens.
The quicker we go, the less time it takes which avoids hours of numbness. We treat gummy smiles, tumors, incise the frenulum (the strip of tissue that connects the lip to the gums) to help alleviate gaps and make it easier to eat and speak.
Another advantage of using our lasers is reducing pain and speeding the healing of cold sores, canker sores, fever blisters, and ulcers without scarring around your mouth. The healing usually takes so long and it’s so hard spoken and eat during the healing time, using lasers is the only way to go.
Laser therapy is the latest and greatest addition to our practice!
