Lasers have become part of our daily lives. They're in our computers, and we see them in the grocery store when we buy our food. Now, with new advancements in technology, lasers have become an important part of dentistry as well.
The benefits of using lasers in dentistry
A number of different kinds of lasers are used in dentistry, and they are particularly useful for treating the gums and soft tissue problems. The benefits of laser treatment include:
• Faster healing
• Less bleeding
• Reduced swelling
How we use lasers
Before using the laser, we provide you with special protective glasses, and then we may numb the area we'll work on. We then sweep the gentle beam over the affected area. The narrow beam removes only a specific number of cell layers on each pass, so we have precise control over the procedure. Lasers can be used in a wide range of procedures, including:
Esthetic gum recontouring
Treatment of gum disease
Removal of excess gum tissue
