Laser Dentistry - painless, needle free
- Laser in most cases, there are no needles or any numbness, kids won’t chew their lips or tongue when they leave the office and can eat right away.
- The laser’s pinpoint accuracy allows the dentist to leave as much healthy tooth structure as possible when removing tooth decay.
- Soft tissue healing after laser surgery is faster than surgery done with traditional scalpel blades or with electro surgery.
- Due to the laser uses only light and water to cut, surgical sites heal very quickly and with minimal or no bleeding.
What can be done in the dental office with a laser?
- Laser dentistry results in the very conservative removal of decay resulting in minimally invasive procedures.
- Lasers are very efficient at gum re-contouring (gingivectomy) procedures especially during and after orthodontics (braces).
- Lasers are ideal for relieving a child who is tongue-tied where the tongue cannot move normally because it is held by too short of a fibrous cord of tissue to the floor of the mouth.
- Lasers can relieve painful canker sores with guaranteed accelerated healing
