While lasers might seem like something from the future, dentists have actually been using them to treat a variety of dental issues since 1994.
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, frenectomies, removing troublesome lesions, or alleviate some of the pain from a canker sore. They can also be used to alleviate sensitivity in your teeth.
These lasers are extremely useful for a number of different activities, whether it is slicing off harmful tissue or vaporizing bacteria deposits. 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.
