Laser Dentistry Benefits

Dental lasers provide a wide variety of benefits including the following:

  • Laser dentistry procedures are usually pain-free, often eliminating the need for anesthesia.
  • No stitches are required after gum procedures with a dental laser.
  • Dental lasers reduce bleeding.
  • The heat from a dental laser reduces the risk of bacterial infections.
  • Faster healing time due to less trauma during procedure.
  • More accurate decay detection.
  • Reduced damage to surrounding tissues.
  • Increased precision during procedures.

Dental lasers are much more effective at detecting tooth decay than older techniques of probing each tooth and looking at x-rays. Because laser dentistry is pain-free for many dental procedures, many patients find they feel more relaxed and comfortable. In addition to patient comfort, dental lasers increase the range of available dental procedures since they are more precise and create less trauma to the surrounding tissues and teeth.
