Laser dental treatment can be a great option for people looking for a more pleasant dental care experience. Patriot Family Dental in Clarksville is proud to specialize in laser dentistry for our patients. Here’s what you should know.
What is Laser Dental Treatment?
LASER, which stands for “Light Amplication by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation”, has been used in professional dentistry for 30 years.
Laser dentistry centers around a special type of laser, or beam of light, that is pointed at the teeth or gums during specific procedures. Lasers cause less pain and have a lower noise level than drills and other dental tools. Lasers also cause less bleeding than many other dental tools. Lasers are precise and accurate, proving especially gentle on sensitive areas of the mouth and gums. Most patients don’t need anesthesia when being treated with lasers. This means a shorter, less stressful appointment.
What is Laser Dental Treatment Used For?
Laser treatment can be used to address tooth sensitivity, cavities and tooth decay, or aesthetic issues like teeth whitening. Lasers can also be used to remove fillings, reshape the gums, and remove bacteria during endodontic therapy (root canal procedures).
What Are the Benefits of Laser Dental Treatment?
Here are the key benefits of laser dentistry:
- Low noise level
- Faster healing
- Reduce risk of infection
- Less need for anesthesia
- Less need for multiple dental appointments
