Dental Lasers in Daly City, California
Laser dentistry is an emerging dental technology used in general and restorative dentistry. Kenneth Hovden, DDS, in Daly City, CA, is among the highly skilled dental practices starting to use this effective technology.
Dental laser technology allows for shorter treatment time, less pain, and higher precision. Among their many uses, dental lasers are commonly used for cavity detection, gum treatments, sealant applications, tooth whitening, and mouth surgeries.
Laser Dentistry Benefits
Dental lasers provide a wide variety of benefits including the following:
- Usually pain-free, often eliminating the need for anesthesia.
- No stitches required after gum procedures.
- Reduced bleeding.
- Dental laser heat reducing 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.
