The increase in dental technology over recent years has resulted in the proliferation of lasers being used in dentistry. Dental lasers are completely safe and cause little pain compared to older methods of treatment. Lip tie South Florida is here to help the community.
What is Laser Dentistry?
A laser is an instrument that produces a very narrow, intense beam of light energy. When laser light comes in contact with tissue, it causes a reaction. The light produced by the laser can remove or shape tissue. Lasers have been used in dentistry since 1990. They can be used as a safe and effective treatment for a wide range of dental procedures and are often used in conjunction with other dental instruments. Lasers can be much gentler on sensitive tissue than metal instruments. Compared to the lasers we see in movies, our dental lasers are safe and very small tools.
Dentists may not need to use a drill or administer anesthesia in some procedures, allowing the patient to enjoy a more relaxed dental experience. Laser procedures can be more precise. Also, lasers can reduce symptoms and healing times associated with traditional therapies; reduce the number of bacteria in both diseased gum tissue and in tooth cavities, and control bleeding during surgery. If the dental laser is used according to accepted practices by a trained practitioner, then it is at least as safe as other dental instruments. Call today to speak with one of our specialists.
