LASER DENTISTRY – WHAT TO EXPECT
If a dental laser is being used as part of your procedure or treatment, your dentist will explain its use and what to expect during and after with respect to healing. In many cases, using a dental laser reduces or eliminates the need for anesthesia. Dental lasers can be helpful when treating anxious patients who may be highly sensitive to the noise of common dental tools.
Soft tissue lasers are used to treat all stages of gum disease, enhancing the scaling and root planing procedure and addressing the deep pockets created by periodontitis. One of the key benefits of using a laser to treat advanced gum disease is the stimulation of the natural healing response for the damaged soft tissue. The process removes the infection and supports the regrowth of healthy gum tissues and the reattachment to tooth roots.
