Laser dentistry is the use of laser tools in dental procedures. Instead of the more traditional metal tools typically used in dental procedures, lasers afford your dentist the opportunity to be more accurate, precise, and effective in their treatments. Lasers also sterilize and cauterize as they work, which means that your recovery time is significantly shorter when you have a laser dentistry treatment.
Laser dentistry is an excellent option for anybody looking for a more technologically advanced approach to their dental care, but it’s especially effective for patients who suffer from dental anxiety or dental phobias. The lasers used in dental procedures eliminate three of the bigger factors tied to peoples’ dental discomfort: heat, pressure, and vibration. With these three components gone, you’ll find that your dental treatment is much more comfortable and much less stressful. Many patients don’t even request anesthesia when they have laser dentistry.
The team at Dental Designs of Plantation uses lasers in as many treatments as possible, including:
Your dentist can use lasers to treat tooth decay effectively. The laser tools enable your dentist to more accurately target your areas of decay without impacting any of the surrounding gum tissue.
The traditional method for treating gum disease involves pulling back your gum tissue with metal tools and scraping the plaque and tartar buildup from the surfaces of your teeth beneath your gums, which can be a significantly uncomfortable procedure. By using laser technology to eliminate your plaque and tartar and heal your infected gum tissue, the team at Dental Designs of Plantation can make your gum disease treatment much more comfortable and effective while reducing your overall recovery time.
If you want to improve the appearance of your smile by whitening your teeth, laser dentistry can help accelerate the process. The team at Dental Designs of Plantation applies professional-strength whitening gel to your teeth, then shines a laser on the bleaching solution that helps it more deeply penetrate your enamel and break up stains. The result is a brighter, whiter smile in a fraction of the time. With laser teeth whitening, you can leave the office with a smile that’s up to eight shades whiter.
