How Laser Dentistry Benefits Patients
The idea of lasers used to be straight out of science fiction: the Martians had their heat rays in H.G. Wells’ War of the Worlds, Luke Skywalker deftly handled his lightsaber in the Star Wars franchise, and Captain Kirk skillfully used his phaser in Star Trek. These days, lasers are part of our everyday lives. From your computer mouse to your BluRay player, lasers have become indispensable tools. The same is true of the lasers that we use to treat our patients at Wayne Dental Care.
The Benefits of Using Laser Dentistry
There are many reasons why laser dentistry is the perfect option for our patients. Here are just a few:
- Early Detection – Our Diagnodent laser helps us detect decay before it becomes a problem. In most cases, the earlier decay is detected, the less invasive the treatment will be. The less invasive the treatment, the more comfortable you will be.
- Precision – Lasers allow us to treat only the affected area without harming the healthy surrounding tissue. This makes procedures, such as fillings, a breeze for both doctor and patient; minimal tooth surface will be removed before filling the cavity, saving you time and discomfort.
- Exceptional Comfort – Our versatile Waterlase laser gives us the ability to treat both soft tissue (such as the gums) and hard (the teeth or bones) – in many cases without needles, bleeding, or stitches. This means that patients can resume their normal routines almost immediately after a procedure.
