Dentistry has come a long way in recent years. In fact, treatments that were once dreaded, like root canal therapy, are now relatively painless. For instance, you may know that many dentists have incorporated lasers as part of their regular treatments. Laser technology can be used to make a variety of treatments more efficient and less intrusive.
Our team can use lasers to treat many areas of your mouth. Laser dentistry is often used as part of a number of treatments, including treating gum disease. Laser dentistry can also be used as part of wisdom teeth removal and other extractions.
While wisdom teeth removal and gum disease treatments are both fairly common, lasers can also be a useful part of other procedures. For instance, did you know that lasers can be useful if your children are coping with an issue such as speech development—specifically by addressing a damaged jaw? Some dentists also use laser dentistry to enhance the whitening process or to address inflamed jaws.
Laser dentistry can also be useful because it tends to reduce recovery time and is often less painful. In fact, many treatments that are performed with lasers can be done without anesthesia. Furthermore, implementing lasers can reduce bleeding, damage to surrounding tissue, and the need for stitches.
