The Benefits of Laser Dentistry

dental supply companyAlthough it might sound scary to patients, laser dentistry is a more precise way to perform many common dental procedures. I can only surmise that this is where we are headed, regardless, as technology and efficiency continue to improve. Best of all, laser dentistry is much more comfortable for patients so this is excellent news for anxious patients. Some of the wonderful benefits of laser dental supplies include:

  • Usage of soft tissue lasers may not require stitches.
  • Certain procedures will not require anesthesia.
  • It will minimize the amount of bleeding because the high energy from the light beam actually aides in the clotting of blood vessels. Therefore, much less blood loss. (Definitely good news for you!)
  • The high energy beam can actually sterilize the area, meaning far less chances of bacterial infections.
  • The chances for damage to surrounding tissue is minimized due to the precision of the laser.
  • Wounds will heal faster and tissues can be regenerated.

Laser dentistry actually has quite a number of viable applications. It can detect cavities, be used for tooth preparation before dental fillings, seal tubules which cause tooth sensitivity, reshape gum tissue,  aide in muscle attachment for those with limited tongue movement, remove benign tumors, and much more. The number of dentists offering laser dentistry are expected to grow so talk to your dentist today about these dentist supplies.
