Since 1994, lasers have been used to treat numerous dental issues. Laser dentistry works by delivering energy in light form, and is effectively used within many dental applications. In dental surgery, it is used to cut and vaporize the targeted tissue that it comes into contact with, in a clean, safe and efficient manner. It can also be used to cure a filling, where the laser helps to strengthen the bond between the filling and the tooth, essentially making the filling more durable. It can also be used for teeth whitening, where the laser acts as a heat source that enhances the tooth-bleaching agents. Overall, laser dentistry is used within many dental applications, and has been proven to be an excellent dental tool. Our team at Abitibi Dental Centre is proud to offer our laser dentistry services to our patients in a variety of different forms.
The Benefits of Laser Dentistry
– Laser dentistry is often less painful than traditional dental drills
– Laser dentistry may reduce anxiety with those uncomfortable with the sounds of dental drills
– Lasers minimize bleeding and swelling during soft tissue treatments
– Laser dentistry can preserve a more healthy tooth during a cavity removal
Lasers are a great modern dentistry tool, and have many great attributes that set them apart from other traditional dentistry tools. Although we cannot use lasers for all applications, we surely use it as much as we can, and whenever appropriate. In many cases laser dentistry procedures will still be accompanied by drilling, and other treatment methods as well.
