Have you heard about laser dentistry? Similar to laser hair removal or laser vision correction, laser dentistry promotes patient comfort and more efficient dental procedures. Did you know that Dr. Aziza Askari possesses certification by the Academy of Laser Dentistry? Our team at Comfort Dental Spa discusses this cutting edge technology and how laser dentistry is used at our Farmington Hills dentist office.
Laser Dentistry in Livonia
Soft tissue lasers are often used in treating gum disease. These types of lasers sanitize infected tissue and clean away bacteria. Because lasers are less invasive than traditional gum disease treatment methods, patients typically experience less discomfort and heal more quickly. In some cases, lasers eliminate the need for cutting into the gum tissue and using sutures. Some studies indicate the laser therapy is more effective at managing gum disease than more invasive treatment methods and actually helps stimulate the gums to rejuvenate new tissue. Hard tissue lasers can be used for cleaning away decay on the outside and insides of teeth.
Benefits of Dental Lasers
- Reduced recovery time
- Minimally invasive
- Sutures are not necessary because lasers seal oral tissues
- Anesthesia is not necessary for most procedures
