Benefits of LASER
Virtually Painless, More Natural Dentistry*
Heat, vibration and pressure are the primary causes of pain associated with the use of the traditional dental drill. Since cutting both hard and soft tissues (teeth and gums) with LASER does not generate heat, vibration or pressure, many dental procedures can be performed nearly pain-free with fewer shots, less need for anesthesia, less use of the drill and fewer numb lips! Additionally, using LASER for gum procedures reduces bleeding, post-operative pain, swelling and the need for pain medication in many cases. It’s just a better way to get your dentistry done!
Accuracy & Precision
LASER dentists are able to remove tooth enamel decay (the hardest substance in the body), bone and gum tissue precisely while leaving surrounding areas unaffected. This conserves more of the precious tooth structure you were born with, helping you to maintain your natural teeth longer!
High speed drills can cause hairline cracks and fractures in the teeth that eventually lead to future dental problems. LASER reduces damage to healthy portions of the tooth and minimizes trauma.
Less Bleeding & Swelling
Due to its conservative cutting action, LASER performs many soft tissue (gum) procedures with little or no bleeding and less post-op swelling. Fewer Dental Visits
Since you often do not need shots or anesthesia, a LASER dentist can perform cavity preps in all areas of the mouth in just one visit. This technology also gives trained LASER dentists the ability to perform many procedures that were previously referred to specialists, saving you time and hassle as you address the dental needs of you and your family.
LASER is extremely versatile. It can be used for a wide range of hard and soft tissue procedures. From decay removal, cavity preparation, root canals, smile design, gum and bone surgical procedures and many others.
*Discomfort is based on individual sensitivity to pain, and other factors. Not all patients can be treated painlessly without anesthetic. However, dentists using LASER to perform typical cavity preparations report not using anesthetic in the majority of cases.
