Facts About Laser Dentistry

Posted .

Did you know that lasers have been used in dentistry for decades? And recently laser dentistry has become more common. One of the main reasons for this is that patients tend to feel less anxious with a laser than they do with other dental tools. Laser dentistry also offers a number of other benefits.

Lasers have been used broadly since the mid 1990s. Laser dentistry is a popular choice because patients tend to feel more relaxed and comfortable when a laser is used instead of a drill. Lasers also allow dentists to be more precise. This means dentists can reduce damage done to nearby areas during treatments. Patients can also expect to heal more quickly and experience less bleeding during and after a procedure where lasers are used.

Have you heard that using a laser could actually make placing a filling more effective? In fact, lasers can be used to prepare the enamel for cavities and to set and cure a filling. Lasers are also used in a number of other procedures. For example, they can be useful in root canal therapy and gum disease treatments.
