Laser dentistry could be the best choice for you if you're worried about needles, drills, and numbness during a dental cleaning.
Within laser dentistry, the painless tool - the "laser" - elivers energy in the form of life, which travels at different wavelengths and is absorbed by a specific target. This target can be enamel, tooth decay, gum tissue, or teeth whitening enhancers. Unlike a dental drill, there's no heat or vibration with laser dentistry, making the procedure comfortable and calming for patients who have those related fears.
There are numerous areas of dental care that can benefit from advanced laser technology, including:
- Cavity diagnosis and removal
- Whitening your teeth
- Hardening bonding materials
- Periodontal care
- Pediatric services
- Root canal treatment
- Crown lengthening and other gum corrections
- And more!
Laser dentistry has shown to be incredibly effective for both children and adults who have dental fears of their own.
