How Lasers Are Transforming Dentistry

One of the most significant advancements in dentistry has been the introduction of laser technology. Today, dental lasers offer a wide range of applications for treating various issues affecting the soft and hard tissues in and around the mouth.

  • Removing tooth decay
  • Treating gum disease
  • Addressing gummy smiles
  • Crown lengthening
  • Performing biopsies or the removal of oral lesions
  • Curating restorative (filling) materials
  • Activating in-office teeth whitening systems

The Science Behind Dental Lasers

The word laser is an acronym for "light amplification by the stimulated emission of radiation." Lasers produce light energy in a very narrow and focused beam. In dentistry, dental lasers combine this energy with water and air to cut and shape target soft or hard tissues in the mouth precisely and safely.

Unlike traditional methods involving drills and scalpels, lasers offer a minimally invasive approach that can reduce patient discomfort, swelling, and bleeding. From cavity treatment to gum reshaping and even teeth whitening, the applications of laser technology in dentistry are vast and continually expanding.

Experience a More Comfortable Dental Visit

One of the most significant advantages of laser dentistry is its ability to provide a more comfortable experience for patients. Since dental lasers operate without direct contact with the targeted tissues and without the heat, vibration, or discomfort associated with conventional approaches to care, they often eliminate the need for local anesthesia.

And, since dental lasers cauterize tissue as they go, they also reduce peri and post-operative bleeding and offer improved healing and recovery times with less swelling and scarring.

The Precision of Laser Dentistry

The precise nature of laser beams allows the performance of targeted treatment with unparalleled accuracy and efficiency. Procedures involving lasers consistently demonstrate improved outcomes and a lower risk of complications.

Whether removing decay, reshaping gums, or performing surgical procedures, lasers provide greater control and allow for finer detail work compared to conventional approaches to care.
