Laser therapy in dentistry provides patients with a more comfortable dental treatment experience. Using laser dentistry, your dentist is able to deliver a precise treatment that is more comfortable, quicker, and provides more stunning results.
Benefits of soft tissue laser therapy
There are several benefits to receiving a laser therapy dental treatment:
- Many laser treatments do not require anesthesia, and the recovery time is much quicker than with traditional treatment methods.
- There is less bleeding because the high energy light beam aids in the clotting of the exposed blood vessels, thus inhibiting blood loss.
- There is potentially less of a chance of bacterial infection because the high energy beam sterilizes the area being treated.
- Procedures may not require sutures.
- Faster healing, less bleeding and reduced swelling.
The laser can be used for a variety of procedures.
Soft tissue treatments include gum reshaping, lesion removal, treatment of gum disease, removal of excess gum tissue and removing benign oral tumors.
