What is Laser Dentistry?
Laser dentistry refers to the use of lasers in dental care. This means the use of diagnostic lasers as well as the use of lasers that contour and reshape the structures in the mouth.
The Benefits of Laser Dentistry
There are many benefits to laser dentistry. Since dental lasers are safe and extremely precise, there is often no need for shots or anesthetic. Patients report less discomfort during dental procedures and no pain after a procedure is performed. Since less prep time is required, treatments are quicker without sacrificing quality. Patients may also notice smoother and faster recovery times.
This improved accuracy is a testament to the effectiveness of laser dentistry. Not only does laser dentistry eliminate the guesswork of the past, it also reduces the possibility of unintended trauma to a tooth. This all translates into better dental health in the near future as well as the long run.
Best of all, laser dentistry comes at no additional cost to patients.
