What conditions can laser dentistry help me with?
We have seen some really terrific advances in dental technology in the past few decades, and one we are pleased to offer patients at our West Allis, WI office is laser dentistry.
Lasers have already transformed medical procedures because they offer a minimally-invasive alternative to traditional cut-and-stitch surgery. A laser works by emitting a beam of highly concentrated light energy that produces a reaction when it comes into contact with soft tissues. Laser light is very powerful, but it produces very little heat, which makes it a perfect alternative for many dental procedures.
Uses of Laser Dentistry
Your comfort is one of our first priorities, and state-of-the-art laser treatment decreases healing times and minimizes any post-treatment discomfort. We can use dental lasers in many ways:
- Efficiently cure and harden dental materials
- Eliminate decay and prep teeth for fillings
- Activate teeth whitening gel during in-office treatment
- Contouring gum tissue for a more pleasing appearance
- Reduce the discomfort of canker sores
- Eliminate cold sores and prevent reoccurrence
- Reduce tooth sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures
Your comfort is our primary concern, and we choose dental lasers because they do away with uncomfortable dental procedures. In fact, many patients do not require any anesthesia because treatment with lasers is so comfortable. Laser procedures require no cutting and result in minimal bleeding. This benefit makes laser dentistry perfect for children and adult patients who resist dental treatment because of anxiety.
Our highly experienced team is trained to use laser technology properly so that you can be confident about the safety of laser dentistry at our West Allis, WI dental office.
