Dentistry has come a long way in recent years. In fact, treatments that were once dreaded, like root canal therapy, are now relatively painless. For instance, you may know that many dentists have incorporated lasers as part of their regular treatments. Laser technology can be used to make a variety of treatments more efficient and less intrusive.
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.
There are a number of other reasons dentists could decide to implement lasers. You see, with laser dentistry, our team can reduce your recovery time. Similarly, treatments done with laser dentistry could also be less painful. In fact, some treatments performed with laser dentistry can be performed without any anesthesia. Furthermore, with these treatments, you may not need stitches and you may bleed less.
