The word “LASER” is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. A laser device emits a powerful, highly-concentrated beam of light. Lasers are used in hundreds of applications in many other industries, including communications, researching, manufacturing, and medicine.
Lasers allow dentists a degree of precision that was previously impossible. How do they benefit patients?
- Fewer stitches (some surgical procedures require no sutures)
- Shorter healing time
- Decreased chance of infection
- Less damage to surrounding tissue/bone
- Increased patient comfort – anesthesia is often unnecessary
Sometimes you’ll hear the phrase, “drill-less” or “no drill” dentistry. That means lasers. We’re able to use lasers for fillings, and the removal of tissue, and in many other applications.
