Laser dentistry is a minimally invasive dental treatment that is highly effective. Laser dentistry treats a multitude of issues and is the gentle and comfortable way to a new smile. Dr. Greenman uses laser dentist to treat gum disease and remove bacteria. He also uses laser dentistry to re-contour gum lines following cosmetic dentistry treatments.
How Does Laser Dentistry Work?
Laser dentistry works using light energy for dental procedures. Lasers are easy to use and allow Dr. Greenman to vaporize or painlessly cut tissue, eliminate tooth decay and remove gum tissue.
There is minimal blood loss because the lasers cauterize as they work. This reduces pain and recovery time. Dental lasers can also help prevent infections as they sterilize the area while minimizing any damage to the surrounding areas.
Why is Laser Dentistry Painless?
Laser dentistry is much less invasive than traditional shots and drilling. Laser dentistry eliminates the drill and the scalpel in many dental procedures. Laser dentistry also reduces your need for anesthetic.
Even fillings and biopsies can be completed with laser dentistry. Lasers also sterilize the area as they go reducing the risk of infection. One of the biggest advantages of laser dentistry is that there are no stitches in most cases.
