Laser dentistry offers a number of benefits. Among them are less pain, quicker healing and less invasive procedures.
Lasers are very efficient in their use, which can mean that patients experience less pain during and after a procedure. This is particularly important when dealing with gum disease or other issues that can cause inflammation or infection.
Laser technology allows dentists to perform a range of dental procedures with greater accuracy and efficiency. This also reduces the risk of complications during the procedure and improves overall results.
Minimal Trauma, Bleeding and Swelling
Laser procedures are less invasive than traditional tools because they are more precise. They also sterilize the area, which lowers the risk of infections and minimizes bleeding.
Lasers promote blood clotting, which helps with faster healing and reduced recovery time. This makes laser dentistry an excellent choice for patients who are concerned about the recovery process of other surgical procedures.
Since there is no drilling required for laser treatments, they are less expensive than traditional dental work. They usually qualify for a discount or rebate under your dental insurance plan.
There are two main types of lasers used in dentistry: hard tissue and soft tissue. Hard tissue lasers are able to cut through a tooth’s enamel and bone. They are often used to remove decay, prepare a tooth for a filling and etch the enamel so a filling can bond with it.
