What is Laser Dentistry?
Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation (LASER) dentistry instruments create light energy in a focused, narrow beam. The light then reactions when it hits tissue, allow Dr. Ravon to shape or remove the tissue. Dentists use lasers for all types of dental procedures from teeth whitening to gum contouring. It’s not only more comfortable for patients but allows dentists to make more precise cuts – giving patients better results.
What are the Benefits?
Most dentists switch to laser dentistry to provide their patients with a handful of amazing benefits including the following.
Effective for Treating Gum Disease – Not only is laser dentistry amazing for removing plaque and tartar but it kills bacteria on the spot, making it highly effective for treating gum disease.
Minimally Invasive – Using a laser for any type of oral surgery is much less invasive than with traditional dental instruments due to its high precision.
Faster Healing Time – Dental lasers boost cellular activity which expedites the body’s healing process compared to traditional methods.
Less Bleeding – Coagulates your tissues as it’s being used which reduces bleeding and swelling.
More Comfortable – Traditional dental drills cause vibrations which ultimately can cause more pain during procedures. Since laser dentistry doesn’t cause vibrations, patients typically experience less discomfort. Some may not even require any anesthetic during their procedure because it’s so pain-free.
No Noise – Those who suffer from dental anxiety can find comfort in never hearing the sound of a drill or dental instrument again. Laser dentistry is completely quiet which can help reduce dental anxiety.
Fewer Infections – Sterilizes every area they touch which reduces the possibility of infection with any procedure.
Extremely Precise – Allows Dr. Ravon to make precise cuts and movements to provide patients with beautiful results they can’t get with traditional methods. The precise movements also allow Dr. Ravon to preserve more natural tooth structure and gum tissue.
No Sutures Required – Dental lasers seal incisions immediately which eliminates the need for sutures.
Safe for Patients with Pacemakers – Since dental lasers do not use any electrical characteristics, it makes dental procedures much safer for patients with pacemakers.
