Benefits of Laser Dentistry

Laser dentistry is a precise and efficient method for performing a variety of dental procedures. This technology, when combined with a dental professional’s skill, improves care.  Dental lasers allow your dentist to treat a specific area without damaging surrounding structures.

The Advantages of Laser Dentistry

Types of Dental Lasers

Hard Tissue Lasers send light along a wavelength that is highly absorbable by the water in enamel and bone. This quality makes them more efficient for precisely cutting through tooth structure. Hard tissue lasers are often used for prepping or shaping of teeth for composite bonding and removing decay.

Soft Tissue Lasers are commonly used for periodontal treatment. They have the ability to eliminate bacteria as well as encourage the renewed tissue growth. This kind of lasers has a wavelength that is increasingly absorbable by the water in gum tissue. Soft tissue lasers gently remove the infection from gums while sealing blood vessels and nerve endings. For this reason, many people experience virtually no pain following treatment.

The Future of Dental Lasers

Oral health care techniques may soon be performed more effectively with enhanced comfort thanks to the growing reliability of this treatment. Eventually, an increased number of dental offices around the world will use lasers, replacing the need for a traditional dental drill. This would relieve the fear and anxiety many people experience when they visit their dentist.

If you consider yourself an anxious dental patient, Dr. Aziza Askari has incorporated state-of-the-art laser techniques to provide precision treatment. We encourage you to call or visit Comfort Dental Spa for more information on this innovative technology.
