Laser Dentistry

New breakthroughs in laser technology are changing dentistry.
Treating the soft areas in your mouth is a lot more comfortable thanks to lasers. A laser uses energized light to precisely remove soft tissue. The light beam simultaneously sculpts and cauterizes the area. That means there is little, to no bleeding, making your healing time faster and it sterilizes the tissue, reducing the chance of infection. The laser targets just the area to be treated, leaving surrounding areas untouched. Because lasers work on a cellular level the procedure is usually painless. Most people don’t need anesthesia. No shots, no numbness, and a laser is quiet. You’ll probably only hear a low him or beep. Lasers can be used for a number of procedures including crown lengthening to improve your smile, sterilizing areas infected with bacteria, removing gum tissue without cutting, removing cold sores and lesions. And the FDA says lasers are safe to use on everyone. Lasers can be a welcomed tool to help you get a bright healthy smile.
