For many years many dental patients remained unaware of the many benefits thatlaser dentistry in Ponte Vedra Beach has to offer them. Until recently when more information became easily accessible, few people actually knew about its great benefits.
As its popularity continues to rise, more and more dental patients are now opting forlaser dentistry procedures to be performed on them. However, let’s take a step back and look at the basics of this groundbreaking technology and see how it can impact your life for the better.
How Does Laser Dentistry Work?
First let’s take a look at this technology. The laser is an instrument that produces an intense and narrow beam of light energy. When the laser light comes into contact the mouth’s tissue, it causes a reaction. Laser light can remove or shape tissue as required. Lasers have actually been used in dentistry since 1990.
To name only a few procedures, laser dentistry can help to achieve the following:
· Reduce the discomfort of cold sores and canker in the mouth;
· Expose partially erupted wisdom teeth;
· Remove overgrown tissue caused by specific medications;
· Remove or reshape bone and gum tissues during crown lengthening procedures; and
· Removal of inflamed gum tissue and help in the treatment of gum disease
These are only a few of the many ways that lasers are used in laser dentistry.
There are many advantages to opting for laser dentistry procedures. You may be able to negate the need for drilling during your visit to the dentist, or having to go under anesthesia for certain procedures. This will provide you with a more relaxed and enjoyable dental experience.
Lasers are also more precise and can help to reduce symptoms and speed up healing times that are associated with traditional dental therapies. These are but a few of the many reasons why so many patients decide to opt for laser dentistry.
