What Are the Advantages of Using Lasers in Dentistry?

The advantages of laser dentistry include:

  • Reduced pain and discomfort during procedures.
  • Minimal bleeding and swelling due to the laser's cauterizing effect.
  • Decreased risk of infection, as lasers sterilize the area being treated.
  • Often eliminates the need for sutures in soft tissue procedures.

What Types of Dental Procedures Can Be Performed with Lasers?

Laser dentistry can be used for:

  • Gum contouring and periodontal treatments.
  • Removing decay and preparing teeth for fillings.
  • Treating cold sores and canker sores.
  • Biopsies and lesion removal.

Is Laser Dentistry Painful?

Laser dentistry is often less painful than traditional methods. Many patients require less anesthesia, and some procedures can be performed with no anesthesia at all.

How Does Laser Dentistry Enhance Healing and Recovery?

Laser procedures typically result in less post-operative discomfort and quicker healing times due to less trauma to the tissues and the sterilizing effect of the laser.
