About Laser Therapy
While lasers might seem like something from the future, dentists have actually been using them to treat a variety of dental issues since 1994. These beams are versatile, effective, and best of all efficient, able to offer more effective cleaning at a much quicker pace.
Laser therapy can be used on a number of dental problems, all with consistent success. Lasers are used to remove tooth decay while simultaneously clearing and shaping the space to be filled. They are also used to combat gum disease, reshaping them while removing bacteria buildup. These lasers are also great for performing biopsies, removing troublesome lesions, or alleviate some of the pain from a canker sore. And on top of all these great health benefits, they are excellent for whitening teeth quickly.
These lasers are extremely useful for a number of different activities, whether it is slicing off harmful tissue, vaporizing bacteria deposits, or activating teeth whitening chemicals. They are typically less painful than traditional methods, reducing the need for anesthesia. The lasers also help alleviate the anxiety some patients feel when going to the dentist’s office because they replace the need for drills. On top of that, lasers cause less swelling and inflammation, and they leave more of the healthy tooth intact
when removing cavities.
One of the leading companies in the world of laser dental technology is Biolase. They produce a number of different products designed to be used in a variety of different dental procedures.

Biolase lasers are safe to use on children, making them viable options for pediatric dental care. They are also extremely useful for treating periodontitis and endodontic issues.
