Laser therapy in dentistry provides patients with a more comfortable dental treatment experience. Using laser dentistry, your dentist is able to deliver a precise treatment that is more comfortable, quicker, and provides more stunning results.
Benefits of laser therapy
There are several benefits to receiving a laser therapy dental treatment.
- Many laser treatments do not require anesthesia, and the recovery time is much quicker than with traditional treatment methods.
- Treatments are more comfortable with improved healing..
- There is less potential chance of bacterial infection because laser treatments are so precise and ablate bacteria while working.
Two types of laser dentistry
There are two different types of laser dentistry: hard tissue and soft tissue. Hard tissue includes treatments such as cavity removal. Soft tissue treatments include frenectomy treatment and adjusting overgrown gums into cavities.
Laser dentistry may be offered as part of an option for treatment when patients are referred to our office.
