Laser Dentistry Pickering
The benefits of laser dentistry
Many dental procedures require anaesthesia, several instruments and sometimes include painful recovery periods.
But since the advent of laser dentistry, this less invasive and more precise technique means that for several procedures, the use of anaesthesia and instruments like drills have become unnecessary.
Lasers use a narrow, concentrated light energy that can be easily controlled allowing for exceptional precision in dental treatments. Since it was approved in 1990, dentists have used lasers in a variety of soft tissue therapies.
Laser treatment can be used to easily remove soft tissue growths and has proven to remove inflamed gum tissues and reduce the amount of bacteria in gum pockets, making laser use ideal for treating periodontal disease.
There are so many benefits laser therapies can offer, such as removing decay from a cavity to help prepare it for the new filling. Since the laser cannot be detected by the nervous system, the pain once associated with soft tissue dental procedures is greatly minimized or eliminated completely.
Because lasers seal blood vessels and nerve ends, there is little or no bleeding and significantly less swelling during dental surgery. Also, the intense energy of the laser beam sterilizes the area being treated, which greatly reduces the chance of bacterial infection from occurring.
Laser dentistry is a minimally invasive technique that is not only useful in a wide range of procedures, but is also an affordable option that offers high levels of accuracy and causes less damage to surrounding tissues, resulting in less post-operative pain and faster recovery periods.
