An exciting new form of dental technology is changing the way dentists – and patients – view dentistry. You may be aware of the use of lasers in cosmetic dentistry, but laser dentistry is also enhancing many types of dental surgery for your comfort and convenience!
Dental laser surgery uses a beam of intense light to correct your dental problems. The energy produced by the laser actually “cuts” away or vaporizes the tissue it is concentrated on.
Dental lasers remove bacteria and infection then cleanse the area in preparation for the restoration – usually in less time and with less irritation than a dental drill.
Laser surgery often means less discomfort, an easier recovery and fewer or shorter appointments than most conventional dental treatments.
Lasers have several uses for dental surgery. Some common types of dental laser surgery include but are not limited to;
1) Teeth Whitening
3) Depigmentation of Black Gum
4) Laser surgeries
- Scar Revision
- Black Mole and Wart Removal
