What Are the Benefits of Dental Lasers?
The various benefits of using laser technology in dentistry include:
No pain: Most patients say that they do not feel any pain during laser treatment. The laser beams are used on the tooth only for a fraction of a second. Moreover, they are very precise in targeting the problem area. Hence, they do not cause any discomfort to the patient.
Minimal heat: These devices use specially-designed lasers that emit minimal heat. This makes them safe for the patient's soft tissues, including nerves and blood vessels.
Less bleeding: Laser technology can penetrate deep inside the pulp cavity to ablate the infectious material. This minimizes bleeding and eliminates the need for additional steps to stop it.
No need for medication: As these devices do not cause pain, you do not need to take any medication before or after the treatment.
Controlled precision: Lasers provide precision in procedures that require shaping, smoothening, and reshaping. Thus, it becomes easier for the dentist to treat complex issues in a short period of time.
Minimal need for anesthesia: Dental lasers can be used for spot treatments and filling procedures with minimal need for anesthesia. This gives patients more control over their experience during treatment and more freedom in choosing dental treatments that can be completed quickly with little interference with daily routines.
