Laser dental treatment is a beam of light pointed at your teeth. The light beam not only sterilizes infected areas with accuracy, it also closes off blood vessels. Most patients don’t need anesthesia, so your dental visit will be relatively short.
Lasers have grown in popularity since the ’60s and are now used globally. They have proven gentle on the mouth and effective at removing old composite fillings and fumigating infected root canals. Lasers are also used for crown lengthening, bone shaping and oral surgery.
Benefits of Laser Dental Treatment:
- Low noise level
- Faster healing
- Reduce risk of infection
- Less need for anesthesia
- Less need for multiple dental appointments
