The word “LASER” is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. A laser device emits a powerful, highly-concentrated beam of light. (Didn’t we all love the amazing laser weapons in ‘Star Wars?’) Lasers are used in hundreds of applications in almost every California industry including communications, researching, manufacturing, entertainment and medicine.
Lasers are now used in some technologically-advanced Daly City dental practices on both hard (tooth) and soft (gum) tissue. Lasers allow San Francisco cosmetic dentists a degree of precision that was previously impossible.
How do lasers benefit dental patients?
- Fewer stitches (some surgical procedures require no sutures)
- Shorter healing time
- Decreased chance of infection
- Less damage to surrounding tissue/bone
- Increased patient comfort – anesthesia is often unnecessary
Half Moon Bay dentists use lasers in crown lengthening, decay detection, bacteria removal in root canals, gum recontouring, biopsy, lesion removal, and tooth whitening.
If you are interested in any of these procedures, call Kenneth Hovden DDS. We stay ahead of the curve with all dental technology, including laser dentistry.
The latest dental technology is useless without the skill and experience necessary to deliver the best possible outcomes. Let us show you some photos of the results we routinely achieve at Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City.
