Laser Dentistry Q & A

What is Laser Dentistry?

Lasers are focused beams of light energy that may improve a variety of cosmetic and general dentistry procedures. While research shows that laser dentistry is effective at improving the ease and comfort of many dental procedures, it’s estimated that less than 10% of dentists use this innovative technology.

Fortunately, the team at La Michoacana Dental Clinic are skilled in the most state-of-the-art techniques, including laser dentistry. They employ lasers in a variety of treatments, from accelerating tooth whitening to exposing wisdom teeth.

What Conditions Can Laser Dentistry Treat?

At La Michoacana Dental Clinic, the team of professionals uses lasers for a wide range of treatments and procedures, including:

  • Treating infections in root canals
  • Performing biopsy procedures
  • Managing gum tissue during dental impressions
  • Removing or reshaping gum and bone tissues during crown procedures
  • Fully exposing wisdom teeth that are partially covered by gums
  • Removing overgrown oral tissues
  • Treating gum disease
  • Enhancing tooth whitening
  • Reducing canker and cold sore discomfort
  • Accelerating wound healing

What are the Benefits of Laser Dentistry?

If you experience anxiety about dental procedures, laser dentistry offers many advantages to put your mind at ease.

  • Precision: Lasers allow for a greater degree of precision than other dental instruments, meaning the team at La Michoacana Dental Clinic can focus on a highly specific area without damaging surrounding tissues.
  • Comfort: Several aspects of laser dentistry lead to a more positive outcome for you. Laser procedures on your gums and soft tissue may not require stitches, and you experience less bleeding because the laser aids in blood clotting. After your procedure, you experience less pain and recover faster. The laser stimulates tissue regeneration and helps wounds heal faster.
  • Safety: In addition to minimizing damage to surrounding tissues, laser dentistry reduces the risk of complications. The laser itself sterilizes the treatment area, lowering the chances of infection. Laser dentistry may also make it unnecessary to use anesthesia for a procedure that would otherwise require it, eliminating common side effects associated with anesthesia.
