Lasers In Dentistry

By visiting a laser dentist, you’ll have the opportunity to experience a new and exciting technology. Dental lasers are used for a variety of treatment procedures. Some lasers are used for surgery, some to cure restorative materials and enhance tooth bleaching, and others to remove tooth structure for elimination of disease and restoration – different lasers for different procedures.

What Is A Laser And How Does It Work?

A laser is an instrument that produces a very narrow, intense beam of light energy which may or may not be visible to the human eye. When laser light comes in contact with tissue, it causes a reaction. The beam of light produced by the laser has the ability to remove, vaporize, or shape soft tissues (gums, cheeks and tongue) or hard tissues (removal of decay).

How Are Lasers Used In Dentistry?

The laser is used for many soft and hard tissue procedures. Your dentist knows which types of patient care are more patient-friendly with a laser than with alternative traditional methods. The dentists using lasers have devoted training time and expense to be able to bring you the many advantages of this exciting new technology.
