Laser dentistry is a modern approach to dental care that utilises advanced laser technology to perform a range of procedures.
At Bright Smile Dental Clinic, we are proud to offer laser dentistry services to our patients, providing them with safe, effective, and minimally invasive treatment options.
What is Laser Dentistry?
Laser dentistry involves the use of a specialised dental laser, which emits a focused beam of light that can be used to treat a variety of dental conditions. Laser energy can target and remove tissue with precision, without damaging surrounding healthy tissue.
This makes laser dentistry an excellent choice for patients who want to avoid the discomfort and recovery time associated with traditional dental procedures.
Benefits of Laser Dentistry
Advantages of Laser Dentistry include:
Minimally invasive: Laser dentistry is less intrusive, causing less trauma to the teeth and gums, leading to reduced pain, bleeding, and swelling following the treatment.
Accurate: Laser energy is focused on the targeted areas, safeguarding the healthy tissues around them.
Reduced recovery time: Laser dentistry is less invasive compared to standard dental procedures, which leads to a faster recovery for patients.
Reduced stress: Laser dentistry is less intimidating than conventional dental treatments, helping to
reduce anxiety among those who are apprehensive about seeing the dentist.
Common Uses of Laser Dentistry
Laser dentistry can be used to treat a wide range of dental conditions, including:
Gum disease: Laser dentistry can be used to remove bacteria and infected tissue from the gums, helping to treat and prevent gum disease.
Tooth decay: Lasers can be used to remove decayed or damaged tooth material, preparing the tooth for a filling or other restoration.
Teeth whitening: Laser energy can be used to activate a bleaching agent applied to the teeth, resulting in a brighter, more youthful-looking smile.
Biopsies: Lasers can be used to remove small tissue samples for biopsy, allowing for early detection and treatment of oral cancer.
