The Advantage of Technology
Technology has become a part of our lives, enhancing our daily routine to make tasks easier. Dentistry has also benefited greatly from this trend. Laser technology is one of the most revolutionary advances in dentistry today.
Laser dentistry has changed dentistry for the better by providing you with a more comfortable experience during your visit and when you get home.
How Laser Dentistry Can Benefit You
Lasers have a wide variety of uses in dentistry due to their advantages, including:
- Most patients don’t need an anesthetic
- No chemicals
- Great for kids
- Promotes healing
Dr. Lavi can use the dental laser for many procedures, including dental fillings, crown preparation, gum disease treatment, and more. The light from the laser sterilizes as it works, so you’ll also be less prone to infection after your procedure.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is laser dentistry painful?
No, laser dentistry isn’t painful. In fact, most procedures with laser dentistry don’t require any anesthetic. That means you won’t have to deal with an injection and you won’t have to wait for your mouth to become un-numb after your visit is over.
Laser dentistry also promotes healing, so you’ll be in discomfort for less time after your procedure is finished.
Are dental lasers safe?
Yes, dental lasers are safe. Laser treatment is more accurate, so less unnecessary tissue is removed — that means you get to keep more of your healthy, natural structures. There will be less damage to your mouth and you’ll heal quicker.
The light from the laser stimulates faster healing and also sterilizes the area it’s used on. You’ll be less likely to get an infection after your procedure due to this, and there’s less of a chance of cross-contamination.
How does laser dentistry work?
Dental lasers convert energy into the form of light. This beam of light can be used for highly accurate cutting or shaping, without the need for a drill. The laser produces less noise than traditional tools and usually doesn’t hurt as much.
