Do you feel anxious when you think about visiting the dentist for treatment? Did you know there’s a cutting-edge treatment method available that can provide precise treatment results with minimal discomfort? Laser dentistry uses precise and gentle laser technology to target problem areas without harming healthy oral tissue. It’s a great solution for those with dental anxiety as well as those who want the most comfortable treatment experience possible. Here are four reasons to choose laser dentistry for your oral health needs.
Many dental tools rely on friction to cut through oral tissue. Dental lasers do not. Instead, they use specific wavelengths of light to cut seamlessly through tissue. Some laser technology is designed to cut through hard oral tissue like teeth and bone. Others are designed to cut through soft oral tissue like the gums during gum disease treatment. Dental lasers are so gentle that anesthetic may not be needed for certain procedures.
Dental lasers aid in blood clotting and inhibit blood loss during and after treatment. In some situations, sutures may not be required after treatment, since the laser itself helps to seal off the treated area.
Those who opt for laser treatments instead of treatments with traditional dental tools are more likely to experience a quick and minimally painful recovery time. The laser technology used in dental procedures is so accurate that it causes minimal trauma to the healthy tissue around the treatment area and enables rapid wound healing.
Dental lasers use high-energy beams to treat diseased tissue. The beams cut through oral tissue with ease and they also sterilize the area receiving treatment. Due to this sterilization, the chance of developing a post-operative infection is very low.
