Laser dentistry uses lasers to treat various dental issues. It offers a potentially more comfortable treatment when compared to other invasive dental procedures. Dental lasers shoot a thin and focused emission of radiation with high light energy, which can easily remove and shape oral tissues.
Laser dentistry is used in:
- Making other dental procedures comfortable and efficient.
- Detecting cavity in the early stages of tooth decay.
- Preparing damaged teeth for receiving a dental filling.
- Treating hypersensitivity by sealing tubules present on the roots of teeth.
- Removing extra gum tissue for crown lengthening.
- Treating tongue frenulum attachment with a laser frenectomy.
- Removing soft tissue folds from dentures that don't fit well.
- Viewing inside a tooth or gum tissues with ease and comfort.
- Removing benign tumors from the oral cavity.
- Treating sleep apnea by reshaping the throat tissues to relieve breathing issues.
- Treating TMJ disorders.
- Regenerating damaged nerves and blood vessels.
- Treating cold sores to minimize pain.
- Whitening teeth by catalyzing the stain-breaking process.
What are the benefits of laser dentistry?
Some of the most prominent benefits of laser dentistry over traditional dentistry are:
- Laser dentistry causes minimal or no pain.
- Uses state-of-the-art technology which is precise and accurate. The narrow laser beam targets only the damaged tissues and does not harm the surrounding healthy tissues.
- Laser dentistry procedures cause minimal bleeding and swelling. Also, the lasers seal off the blood vessels and stop the bleeding easily.
- Lasers used in the treatment sterilize the treated area to kill bacteria and prevent future infestation.
