Exploring Modern Dentistry Techniques: The Advantages of Laser Treatment

April 30, 2024

At the office of Marshlands Family Dentistry, we pride ourselves on using state-of-the-art technology to provide quick, comfortable treatment while achieving healthy, beautiful, and long-lasting results.

In recent years, dental lasers have emerged as one of the most significant advancements in dentistry. These innovative tools offer a wide range of applications for treating various issues affecting the soft and hard tissues in and around the mouth.

Applications for dental lasers include:

  • Eliminating tooth decay
  • Managing periodontal disease
  • Improving gummy smiles
  • Performing crown lengthening procedures
  • Conducting frenectomies to alleviate tongue or lip-tie issues
  • Performing biopsies or the removal of oral lesions
  • Curing restorative (filling) materials
  • Enhancing in-office teeth whitening systems

A modern and minimally invasive approach to dental care

The word laser is an acronym for "light amplification by the stimulated emission of radiation." Dental lasers produce light energy in a very narrow and focused beam. By combining this energy with water and air, they can cut and shape target soft or hard tissues in the mouth with precision and safety.

Compared to traditional methods involving drills and scalpels, dental 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.

A more comfortable experience for patients

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.

Moreover, 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.

Precise, comfortable, and efficient care

The precise nature of laser beams allows for the performance of targeted treatment with unparalleled accuracy and efficiency. Laser procedures 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.
