Laser Dentistry – A Choice in Standard Dental Care
Dentists use lasers in many soft tissue therapies. Lasers can reshape or remove swollen gum tissue. They can remove soft tissue growths. The intense energy in a laser has also been proven to kill bacteria in gum pockets, making lasers ideal for treating periodontal disease.
IN ADDITION TO BEING MORE PRECISE, LASER THERAPIES OFFER MANY OTHER BENEFITS:
- Laser light cannot be detected by the nervous system, so pain is minimized or eliminated.
- Because lasers seal blood vessels and nerve ends, there is little or no bleeding and significantly less swelling.
- Because of their accuracy, lasers cause less damage to surrounding tissues, resulting in less post-operative pain and faster recovery times.
- The intense energy of the laser beam sterilizes the area being treated, greatly reducing the chance of a bacterial infection.
