Laser dentistry has a host of applications for both hard tissue treatments including etching the tooth surface to prepare it for further work and soft tissue treatments such as treating gum disease. Oftentimes, relying on a laser significantly reduces the amount of patient discomfort and time in the chair. Find out more ways that lasers are revolutionizing traditional dental practices below:

How are lasers used in dentistry?

Dental lasers can be used to:

  • reduce the discomfort of canker and cold sores.
  • expose partially erupted wisdom teeth.
  • remove muscle attachments that limit proper movement.
  • manage gum tissue during impressions for crowns or other procedures.
  • remove overgrown tissues caused by certain medications.
  • perform biopsy procedures.
  • remove inflamed gum tissues and aid in the treatment of gum disease.
  • remove or reshape gum and bone tissues during crown lengthening procedures.
  • help treat infections in root canals.
  • speed up tooth whitening procedures.

What are the benefits of using dental lasers?

There are several advantages. Dentists may not need to use a drill or administer anesthesia in some procedures,  allowing the patient to enjoy a more relaxed dental experience. Laser procedures can be more precise. Also, lasers can reduce symptoms and healing times associated with traditional therapies; reduce the amount of bacteria in both diseased gum tissue and in tooth cavities; and control bleeding during surgery.

Here’s more about how lasers are revolutionizing dentistry:

  • Laser dentistry can be a precise and effective way to perform many dental procedures. The potential for it to improve dental procedures rests in the dentist’s ability to control power output and the duration of exposure on the tissue (whether gum or tooth structure), allowing for treatment of a highly specific area of focus without damaging surrounding tissues.
  • If you consider yourself somewhat of an anxious dental patient and are seeking extreme safety and comfort, you might consider looking for dentists who have incorporated laser techniques into their practices and treatments. It is estimated that 6 percent of general dentists own a laser for so.ft-tissue applications, with that number expected to increase over time. Discover more from Your Dentistry Guide.
