The evolution of medical technology has turned many archaic methods obsolete. This is good news if you are a patient in modern times. Have you heard about laser dentistry? Along the same lines as laser hair removal or laser vision correction, laser dentistry provides a higher degree of patient comfort and more efficient dental procedures. Farmington Hills dentist, Dr. Aziza Askari, holds a certification from the Academy of Laser Dentistry. Our team at Comfort Dental Spa embraces this cutting edge technology to provide the best results and comfort to our patients.
Laser Dentistry Explained
Soft tissue lasers are often used for treating periodontal (gum) disease. These types of lasers have the ability to sanitize infected tissue and clear away bacteria. Lasers are less invasive than traditional surgical gum disease treatments. Patients typically report less discomfort and heal more quickly. In some cases, lasers even eliminate the need for sutures, allowing for a much faster healing time. Some scientific research studies indicate that laser therapy is more effective at managing periodontal infections than more invasive treatment methods. Lasers actually stimulate the gum tissues to rejuvenate new tissue growth. Hard tissue lasers are valuable for cleaning away decay on the external and internal parts of teeth.
The Many Benefits of Dental Lasers
If you watch science fiction movies, lasers might seem scary and deadly, but the type which are used in the medical field are a revelation. The precision offered by lasers makes dental surgeries (and all types of surgeries) less invasive. A highlight of the many advantages of this technology include:
- Reduced recovery from procedures
- Minimally invasive
- Tissues are sealed by the laser as it goes
- Anesthesia is generally unnecessary, unless you are a highly anxious patient
