There are many benefits of laser dentistry. Many treatments completed with a dental laser are very comfortable and may not require the use of an anesthetic. Dental lasers also shorten treatment time and healing time and decrease the risk of infection following treatment. In addition, lasers minimize bleeding both during and after treatment, and because they are very precise, we are able to treat the targeted area without affecting nearby healthy tissues.

FAQs about Laser Dentistry
What Is a Dental Laser?
A dental laser is a device that uses highly concentrated beams of light to remove gum infection, eliminate tooth decay, or whiten teeth. It is a more comfortable treatment option that dentists can offer to their patients. That’s because it is less invasive than drilling and other traditional dental procedures.
Do Dental Lasers Hurt?
Procedures involving dental lasers are mostly painless. That’s because pain is usually caused by either vibrations or heat during dental procedures. Dental lasers actually avoid both! People who are fearful of the pain that might occur during certain dental procedures can stand to benefit greatly from dental laser treatments.
What Are the Most Common Procedures that Dental Lasers Are Used for?
Laser dentistry is great because it provides a lot of different options in terms of how it can be used. Some common procedures that dental lasers are used for are periodontal treatment, desensitizing teeth, teeth whitening, non-surgical gum therapy, removing dental decay, and sterilizing infected root canals.
Can Laser Dentistry Prevent Tooth Extraction?
With laser gum treatment, it is possible to save teeth that would otherwise need to be extracted. It depends on the unique situation in someone’s mouth. Laser dentistry does have the potential to help prevent a dentist from having to extract a tooth.
