What Is Laser Dentistry?

Posted .

Are you interested in having a healthy, strong smile? If so, you probably understand that you’ll need to brush your teeth for two minutes at a time every day. You also probably know that you should also floss and visit a dentist twice a year. Still, even if you do all of these things, you may need professional help. Did you know that many dentists have implemented lasers into their normal routine?

Our team can use lasers to treat many areas of your mouth. Laser dentistry is often used as part of a number of treatments, including treating gum disease. Laser dentistry can also be used as part of wisdom teeth removal and other extractions.

However, laser dentistry can be used for a number of less common treatments. For instance, did you know that laser dentistry can be used to help children whose jaw is hindering speech development? Similarly, laser dentistry can be useful for addressing TMJ disorder by helping with inflamed jaw muscles. Lasers are also used in the teeth whitening process.

Laser dentistry can also be useful because it tends to reduce recovery time and is often less painful. In fact, many treatments that are performed with lasers can be done without anesthesia. Furthermore, implementing lasers can reduce bleeding, damage to surrounding tissue, and the need for stitches.
