Laser DentistryAn Overview

laser dentistry port st lucie flLaser technology has had a positive impact on the field of dentistry, enabling dentists to more accurately treat hard and soft tissue with fewer side effects. Improving the patient experience, the use of a dental laser can often make a treatment less invasive and less stressful by eliminating the need for the use of a drill and other tools.

Dental lasers use heat generated energy to vaporize tissue in a targeted manner, minimizing the impact to neighboring tissue and reducing side effects such as bleeding and swelling. The energy created by lasers also stimulates the body’s natural healing response which aids in blood clotting when used on soft tissues such as the gums. A dental laser can be used to treat tooth decay, gum disease, tongue ties and a range of concerns affecting your oral health.

A dental laser is also used in the teeth whitening process and the curing of certain restorations. The heat energy produced interacts with elements of the compound to enhance its effectiveness or seal it, depending on the application.

Laser Dentistry What to Expect

If a dental laser is being used as part of your procedure or treatment, your dentist will explain its use and what to expect during and after with respect to healing. In many cases, using a dental laser reduces or eliminates the need for anesthesia. Dental lasers can be helpful when treating anxious patients who may be highly sensitive to the noise of common dental tools.

Soft tissue lasers are used to treat all stages of gum disease, enhancing the scaling and root planing procedure and addressing the deep pockets created by periodontitis. One of the key benefits of using a laser to treat advanced gum disease is the stimulation of the natural healing response for the damaged soft tissue. The process removes the infection and supports the regrowth of healthy gum tissues and the reattachment to tooth roots.
