What is Laser Dentistry
A laser is an instrument that produces a very narrow, intense beam of light energy. When laser light comes in contact with tissues, it causes a reaction. The light produced by the laser can remove or shape tissue.
Lasers have been used in dentistry since 1990. Lasers can be used as a safe and effective treatment for a wide range of dental procedures and are often used in conjunction with other dental instruments.
Dental lasers can be used to:
Reduce the discomfort of canker and cold sores
Expose partially erupted wisdom tooth.
Remove muscle attachments that limit proper movement.
Manage gum tissue during impressions for crowns or other procedures.
Remove overgrow tissues cause 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.
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 experiences 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.
When your dentist performs a laser procedure, you will be asked to wear special eyeglasses to protect your eyes from the laser.
