Many times, patients are hesitant to go to the dentist because of the sounds and vibrations caused by the dental drill. This is why we use laser technology in our office, since it is easier, painless and quicker than traditional drills. Laser dentistry uses high-powered laser technology to power away soft and hard tissue. It can be useful in most dental appointments when a drill or even scalpel might be needed.
The reason laser dentistry might be needed is because we need to treat either hard or soft tissue. Lasers can be used to eradicate areas of decay as well as file down and smooth teeth in preparation for crowns and bridge work. In surgical procedures, these lasers can be used to help cut through soft tissue without the trauma of a typical scalpel. The process of using a laser in dental procedures is safe and highly effective.
The first step is to have you come into our office for your appointment. We will sit you comfortably in one of our operatories. Because lasers are often painless, anesthetic may not be needed depending on the type of work being done. We then use a small handheld device and laser technology to power away hard and soft tissue as it is needed. We can use this type of technology when preparing teeth for fillings, crowns and bridge work. You will find that the procedure goes quickly and more smoothly than ever before.
If you think you might benefit from laser dentistry, call us today so that we can get you in for a consultation appointment.
