Save Time And Get Better Results
We are always looking for ways to improve how we offer treatments to our patients. Whether it’s using new techniques or cutting-edge technology, we feel it’s important to offer you the best dental care available. Not only does it create better results, it makes your experience that much more comfortable. New technologies have the ability to cut down on the time of procedures and make them more efficient. One of the technologies we use helps us in many different aspects of dentistry. Read more to find out about this incredible tool.
Lasers have been used in dentistry for the past 20 years to help treat a variety of dental issues that affect both the hard tissue (teeth) and soft tissues (gums) of your mouth. For example:
- Lasers can detect early tooth decay which allows us to fix your teeth before further damage can occur.
- Instead of requiring anesthesia or traditional drills, lasers can be used to kill bacteria in the cavity which makes for a less invasive procedure.
- If you suffer from tooth sensitivity, the laser can seal tubules on the tooth’s root so you won’t feel discomfort from hot or cold foods and beverages.
The laser instrument itself produces a narrow, intense beam of light energy that causes a reaction when it comes in contact with tissue. This light can shape and remove tissue. It is safe and can also be used alongside traditional dental instruments. The benefits of laser dentistry include:
- Reduce symptoms and healing times of treatments
- Reduce the amount of bacteria in both tooth cavities and gum tissue that is infected
- Control bleeding during dental surgeries
Since it can reduce or even eliminate the need for anesthesia, patients find they are less anxious about their treatment. They don’t have to deal with needles, and it makes for an overall more pleasant experience.
As always, we are looking out for your best interest when it comes to your oral health and overall well-being. We look forward to keeping you updated on new technologies and techniques we bring to our patients. Until we see you again at our Wayne, NJ office, have a great day.
