Laser treatments include any procedure that your dentist performs with a laser, rather than with a traditional dental tool.
A laser is a highly concentrated beam of light that can cut through both soft tissue (like your gums) and hard tissue (like your teeth), making it an excellent tool for several dental procedures.
There are many advantages to performing your dental procedure with a laser. Since the introduction of the first commercial dental laser in 1989, they’ve become increasingly popular among both dentists and patients.
Idea Dental is equipped with the best laser tools available to modern dentistry, including the BIOLASE® diode and Waterlase™ lasers. These technologically advanced tools perform a wide range of exceptional procedures, including:
With their ability to cut through both hard and soft tissue, laser tools can enhance your experience for a variety of dental treatments.
There are several benefits to using a laser for your dental procedure, including:
Compared to the drill and other traditional dental tools, laser dentistry is virtually painless. In many cases, your dentist doesn’t even need to administer anesthesia for your procedure.
The heat generated by laser tools means that they sterilize your soft and hard tissues as they work. This means that you’re less likely to develop a bacterial infection as a result of your procedure.
Laser tools cauterize your tissue as they cut through it, meaning that you’ll experience less bleeding and will be less likely to need sutures or stitches after your procedure.
Laser tools are more precise than traditional tools, so you’re less likely to experience residual damage to surrounding tissues. This, combined with the fact that the lasers sterilize and cauterize, means the overall process, as well as your recovery time, will be simpler than it would be with traditional dental tools.
