What is laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry is the latest and greatest trend in the field of oral health care. Using highly advanced laser technology, the skilled team at the Dental Studios provides minimally invasive dental care that’s equal parts comfortable and convenient. With laser dentistry, your dentist can treat a variety of different oral health concerns faster and with much less hassle.

How does laser dentistry work?

Like other medical professionals, dentists use lasers, or precisely focused light beams, to repair or remove tissue in small amounts. At the Dental Studios, the team of dentists uses lasers to perform many different procedures involving the inside of the mouth. That could mean removing overgrown tissue, reshaping gum tissue, or whitening teeth.

As far as the specifics of laser dentistry procedures go, the step-by-step process is very similar to other dental work. You may receive some form of anesthesia, though it’ll typically be less than with traditional forms of dental work.

During the procedure, you won’t feel much discomfort or hear noise from the laser like you do from dental needles or drills. Your dentist props open your mouth while they work with the laser to treat you, just like with other dental instruments.

What can laser dentistry treat?

At the Dental Studios, many routine procedures you may need can be performed with laser dentistry, including:

  • Root canal therapy
  • Gum disease treatment
  • Gum inflammation reduction
  • Gum reshaping
  • Wisdom teeth exposure
  • Benign oral tumor removal

In many cases, laser dentistry is particularly ideal for treating younger patients who become anxious or afraid when they undergo more involved dental work.

What are the benefits of laser dentistry?

At the Dental Studios, dentists offer laser dentistry services because of their dedication to patient satisfaction and comfort. The art of laser dentistry provides key benefits that make procedures more efficient and comfortable as well as promote faster healing time.

With laser dentistry, you don’t have to endure invasive cuts or the risk of post-operative infections as the laser can sterilize oral tissues. Bleeding is also not nearly as common in laser dentistry.
