What are the Advantages of Laser Dentistry?
Advances in dentistry are happening all the time. At Generations Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we track those advances carefully to determine whether they are a good choice for our patients.
We have chosen to offer laser dentistry to our patients because the advantages are quite clear. By using lasers, we can:
- Shorten treatment time
- Improve comfort
- Reduce healing time
- Reduce or eliminate bleeding
- Reduce the risk of complications
- Increase precision and efficiency
Lasers allow us to precisely remove only damaged tooth structure in the case of cavities and only damaged gum tissue in the case of periodontal disease. This means that we can preserve more healthy tissue and provide more conservative and less invasive dental care.
We’ve also found that dental lasers tend to reduce anxiety because they eliminate the need for many scary looking and loud instruments. When we can reduce anxiety, we can make it easier for patients to get the routine or emergency care they need to stay healthy.
