What Is Laser Dentistry?

Laser dentistry might sound like something from the future, but it’s actually state-of-the-art dental technology that we offer right now at CarolinasDentist! In this blog post, we explain what laser dentistry is and how you can benefit from it during your next dental treatment.

Lasers can take the place of drills and other common dental tools in several treatments. Laser dentistry uses concentrated light beams and light energy to shape tissue, clean, and more. For example, laser dentistry can be used for:

  • Gum disease
  • Recontouring of gumline
  • Deep cleaning
  • Teeth whitening
  • TMJ dysfunction
  • Cavity detection
  • Sensitive teeth

Benefits of Laser Dentistry

Laser dentistry is efficient, affordable, and accurate. Lasers are especially effective at eliminating bacteria, making them an excellent solution if you have gingivitis or gum disease. They are also less invasive than some traditional dental instruments, which means that they result in less swelling, bleeding, and pain. With reduced healing times after procedures and faster tissue regeneration, patients also experience a smoother and more comfortable recovery process.

There are minimal risks with using lasers versus other types of dental tools. While we still use traditional tools at our practice, we incorporate laser dentistry whenever it will be most beneficial for the patient.
