FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Clearwater, Florida) Not many people excitedly anticipate a visit with their dentist. We all associate that dreadful check up with drills and discomfort. But the advent of laser dentistry has truly revolutionized the field. This relatively new technology has propelled the practice of drilling and scraping into a more patient-friendly experience.
Laser dentistry can aid in a myriad of dental procedures:
– Treatment of gum disease by removing inflamed gum tissue
– Exposing partially erupted wisdom teeth
– Removing and exposing gum and bone during crown procedures
– Decreasing bacteria in root canals
– Reducing a patient’s amount of cold and canker sores
– Hastening tooth whitening procedures
The following information about the benefits of laser dentistry will help to reduce any hesitation you might be feeling as you go in for your next check-up.
Below are 5 reasons you should consider using laser dentistry.
1. More Precision
With lasers, a dentist can interact more precisely with tissue and sometimes even remove several layers of cell tissue at a time. A certain kind of laser called the “Erbium” can be highly selective when working to remove elements of a diseased tooth. With such accuracy, you can see why the laser is often preferred over the old-fashioned drill.
2. A Cleaner Overall Operation
Reduced bacteria and pathogens are another of the dental laser’s positive attributes. Bacteria from the patient’s mouth won’t collect on a laser the same as it might on a scalpel or traditional drill.
In fact, using a laser can physically reduce the amount of bacteria in infected gums and tooth cavities. Lasers are equipped with the ability to disinfect and detoxify diseased tissue while in use.
3. Reduced Need for Anesthesia
Lasers cause less discomfort during and after a procedure compared to traditional dental tools, thus reducing the necessity of local anesthesia. Swelling is also diminished with the use of lasers.
4. Increased Patient Comfort
Have you ever heard of a patient actually enjoying their experience at the dentist? With laser treatment, you’ll finally feel relaxed about your upcoming appointment.
Laser dentistry makes patient anxiety over drills a thing of the past. No more loud buzzing and annoying humming noises that can put a patient on edge. The laser emits nothing but a rush of air due to its suctioning technology.
The prospect of painful, invasive surgery can deter so many patients from even making an appointment in the first place. With laser dentistry, you may not even need that dose of anesthesia.
5. Faster Procedures, Faster Healing
Lasers are considerably less invasive than traditional drills and scalpels. With their increased specificity, lasers can quickly pinpoint tooth and gum problems and rapidly remove decay.
Because lasers promote exceptional hemostasis (the stopping of blood flow), a patient won’t often need sutures or surgical packing. The operation is complete as soon as a patient hops up from the chair.
The speed of a laser procedure also contributes to a healthier postoperative surgical field. Laser dentistry boasts a reduction in inflammation, bleeding, and bacteria, which all promote faster healing.
“Laser dentistry offers an alternative to traditional dentistry, and many patients who fear the dentist find this option to be right for them. This high-tech treatment is quicker and more precisely targeted, ensuring less time is spent in the chair. In addition, patients typically need less anesthesia during their treatment, and the equipment produces less noise. All help to reduce the anxiety experienced by individuals,” Dr. Amir Daoud, founder of FeatherSound Smiles, announces.
Patients who fear the dental drill often find use of the laser reduces their anxiety, and pain tends to be less when a laser is used. Swelling and bleeding during a soft tissue treatment is minimized and more of the healthy tooth tends to be preserved when a cavity is removed with a laser.
