As you probably know, many people tend to think of going to the dentist as a chore that needs to be done. Often, this is because many people find the dentist uncomfortable—especially when they hear the whirring of the drill. Fortunately, not every treatment requires the drill.

You see, laser dentistry is another option that you should consider. In fact, did you know that laser dentistry has been used since the 50s? Still, in the last decade or so, laser dentistry has become much more popular—especially by those who are afraid of visiting the dentist.

Laser dentistry can be used in a number of treatments. For example, did you know that our dentist can remove decay from inside a tooth with laser dentistry? While a dentist could use a drill to address decay, the drill would only be able to reach the visible decay. A laser can also be used in teeth whitening, and to cure and set fillings.

Still, lasers are also popular because they offer a number of other benefits. Lasers allow our dentist more precision, and minimize the damage done to the other tissue in your mouth—even resulting in less bleeding. Furthermore, your mouth will probably heal faster if your treatment was performed with a laser.

Do you have more questions about how laser dentistry could benefit you? Would you like to learn more about what you can do if you’re worried about visiting our dentist?
